If you read carefully (post #35) , you will clearly see that I had stated "if you don't mind spending the extra cash." It's up to the individual about how much he wants to spend.

If it's about spending less for performance & less noise out the box, then yes, buy the DH14. If you plan to buy fans for that heatsink, forget the DH14 and spend a little more for the Phanteks.

I will want my pc to be turned on at least 10 hours on room with no ac at about 30 celcius. Im using cosmos 2 with full fans and asus rampage 4 extreme . Give me some reasons on what i should buy.

I personally use a Silver Arrow with ICD7 paste on my i5 2500k @4.7Ghz. I too am also dealing with a high ambiant temp as its summer and I choose not to run the AC. Temps get to around 29-30c temps on stress testing for hours on end make it to the upper 60c range. playing BF3 for hours on end only nets me temps in the mid 50's(c). Its whisper quiet too.

Your rig is similar to my dream build. I would say get a corsair h100. Even though your case may have space for noctua d14, your mobo won't. Most probably, the cooler will prevent you from using all ram slots. I researched a bit and found that it did on an asus p9x79 pro, which i wanted to use. That's the reason i decided that corsair h100 was better for my build. Its smaller, quieter and cools to same extent sometimes even better. Although its little expensive, but if you can get 3930k and cosmos 2, you can get it too. biggrin.gif Plus on a side note, your case supports h100 in push/pull mode so its efficiency will be increased even further. Good Luck thumb.gif

Get a RASA water kit before wasting time with a Corsair H100. Slightly higher price and massive difference in performance. Both temps and noise will be much lower with Rasa kit. Not to mention you could eventually add a GPU block to your loop.

Good advice. At my place, a custom water loop was way too expensive with all those import and shipping charges, so i went with h100. If possible, then by all means, get a water kit.
