Will corsair H100 be enough, or even too much? - Page 2

More than enough. Save your cash and get a H60 + Akasa viper.

Anyway, back on track. A decent / high end Air Cooler will have marginally higher peak temperatures in comparison to the H100 in most cases.
Is it enough: For the average use and overclocker, it's fine.
Too much: Indefinately not, you can never have too much cooling. The cooler you can run the chip the better its life expectancy and possible performance.
Final Verdict: The H100 is a safe buy in my opinion, but if you feel its lacking for your needs then you need to start looking into some WC loops. thumb.gif

I would have to disagree with you about the H100 being a safe buy just because you can get a Rasa kit with a 240mm radiator for about the same price.

And to answer the question more directly, you can never have too much cooling. The cooler the processor runs, the longer it will last.

I did mention the H100 is a safe buy, but if you want to go further you look into custom loops. The H100 is a pre-build / no maintenance loop which is perfect for beginner overclockers. I never said it was going to appeal to a hardcore H2O overclocker.

I never claimed it was better, just the more user friendly and cheaper option. (Although the performance gains from a RX240 are marginal and not worth the £ : Performance Gain)

Initial prices for a Rasa 750 RX240 kit here are twice that of a H100 (excluding liquid). Just as a little side note.
