£84 and next day delivery is a great price in all fairity.
I'm suprised the prices have gone up though, I only paid a pre-order price of £79.99 back in August.

Best of luck fitting the dual rad and I'm sure we're all looking forward to your opinion on the cooler when you get it fitted. thumb.gif
Have fun.

I was tossing this around for a while, settled on the h100. I like the fact that the heatsink has that fan controller functionality built into it, and it clocks up when you need it, and downclocks when you dont. I haven't had good luck with my fan controller tweaks on my mobo, and dont want to buy an actual fan controller, so this is just as good.

Thanks for the support guys I'll most likely post some temperatures tomorrow and my overall opinion on the ease of installation. I'll post some overclocking temps after that and see what I can get out of it thumb.gif

I have the H100 and the stock fans are quite loud in my opinion, even when hooked to the built-in controller of the H100 and set on the lowest of three settings. It isn't terrible but it's definitely not quiet. At 100% the fans are CRAZY loud. I will say that I haven't noticed much difference in cooling between the fans on high vs low speed though. Your other option is to hook the fans to your own fan controller which allows you to set them a bit lower, yet still have good cooling. You can also replace the fans with something better. I just put GT AP-13s on mine two days ago. Dead silent and move more air than the stock fans on 50%. Nice thing about the GT AP13s is that you don't have to run them on a controller of any kind. They are silent at 100%.

Tbh Hindsight sound really isn't something that bothers me. I play with headphones but I may look at better fans once I've set it all up for a performance increase if I need it.

So it arrived today and I sent it up along with my new case. Really easy to install took me about 10 minutes. I have the fans set to push air out the top, a 120mm fan opposite my graphics card pulling air in and my psu fan facing downwards. I booted up on the H100's lowest setting and it sat at 27C as appose to my normal 50C with my stock fan. Stuck it up to performance and it still sat at 27C but I assumed that would happen as my computer isn't doing anything. Played BF3 for an hour on ultra 1080p and I was at 40C and my stock fan was over heating on ultra settings. As far as sound goes first keep in mind I have added a 120mm fan to my case and my graphics card has two fans on it. At idle it was completely silent and playing battlefield 3 it was still really quiet I can't believe people complain about the sound of these things? Either their setting it up wrong or their die hard biased air coolers because this thing is quiet really quiet. I'm really happy with this product so glad I went with it. Not only does it work it looks a whole lot better than having a huge hunk of metal hanging of your case.
