Noctua NH-D14 any day . If you use another fan along side the default fan that is given, you gono create a push and pull mechanism, which will let you get better air flow and lesser temperatures smile.gifbiggrin.gif

Temps are going to be pretty much the same... but the H100 would certainly give you more room for other options such as not being restricted to lower profile memory and being close to the GPUs...

IMO with the setup and that case you should have an actual water cooling loop but the H100 is pretty good for what it is and that's what I would go with if I were you.

At the moment with all the pump problems H100 is having I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

Maybe after the problems are sorted, but not now.

you will see a noticeable difference with the h100 if you buy better fans for it, other wise it wont be but a few degrees. so starting price the h100 is what like 100 to 130 usd then 4 nice high pressure fans at around 10 usd a piece, your looking at 140 to 170 usd (my apologies I dont know your local currency redface.gif)

plus with those scythe uk fans at 3000 rpm a piece will get pretty dang loud.

I really really like my phanteks, build quality is amazing and it was super easy to install. it runs silent. but you really won't see huge a difference between the three top air coolers, (your two choices and the phanteks) phanteks has always been ahead of the other two but only by a few degrees. I got it because it matched my color scheme pretty well biggrin.gif and it has shown to improve with a third fan.

Doesn't matter which 1 you use. You're good with either the SA, D14, or Phantek. If you don't mind spending the extra money, the H100 (w/ high quality 3rd party fans) are excellent as well.

So the ball is in your hands...Take your pick...can't go wrong with either of them thumb.gif

Noctua NH-D14 is still the better option. The H100 is a good cooler it still has some basic noise and reliability issues. Not recommended if you doing any hardcore overclocking.

OCing a 3930k @ 4.5GHz w/ an ambeint temp of ~30C is not hardcore OCing.
The H100 is an excellent solution for this...especially with the right fans thumb.gif



It doesn't necessarily make the D14 a better solution whistle.gif .....that's all based on the user at this point since the D14, SA, Phanteks, & H100 are basically running neck & neck regarding performance.....nuff said wink.gif

So...instead of getting a cooler that's great right out of the box, he should buy this other cooler and then buy more stuff to make it better? rolleyes.gif

Do catch up. biggrin.gif Even with 2x UK 3000 added H100 is only 3.4c then Phanteks with w stock and 1 UK 3000.

Wonder what Phanteks would do with 2x UK 3000 and no stock middle fan???

well the cost will be more with those fans along with the H100 right ??? So better would be getting NH-D14 which comes for $85.
