H100, H80, or H2O 920?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I am looking at the above coolers for my current rig, and my Ivy CPU once i purchase it. I am curious if the h100 is worth the extra $20 or should i go with one of the other two.

Also now looking at the XSPC 750 240 kit. It's $50 more than the H100, is it worth the extra?

I'd personally just buy an XSPC Rasa 240mm kit for pretty much the same price...

But the H100 will be much better than the H80 or the 920.

Never set up a water cooled rig before. So how much of a pain would it be, and what performance increase would i see? this kit is also $50 (since i lack fluid)

Make sure the H100 is compatable with your case. Also if you look around, there are a few websites selling the H100 for 5-10$ more than a H80. Id say its worth it. The hotter the processor, the more efficient the H100 is at controlling temps compared to a H80. More surface area for fan cooling and more fluid to transfer heat.

Not hard at all, and you don't need fluid, just distilled water.

But get the RX 240, not the RS 240 if you can afford it.

I can afford is, I'm simply curious if it's worth it. Could i add the NB and MOSFET to this kit later? or would that drop performance to much?
