What that hairly black thing said.
But I would not even consider the h100 or any other clc. You can almost buy a nice case and a good air cooler for the price of clc, especially if you change the clc fans. Besides, a good case and air cooler will be quieter, last longer and be just as 'cool' (pun intended) to everyone but the CLC cult members (aka zombies & ghouls).
NH-D14 with 2500rpm fans (TY-143, a14 ippc 2000, a14 ippc 3000) and case airflow to match will be better than h100. Silver Arrow performs same as NH-D14, and Silver Arrow SB-E is maybe 2c better, like NH-D15. Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme or IB-E Extreme are about 8c better than H100.
This is Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme, but Silver Arrow IB-E is same performance.
Here is NH-D14 with 2500rpm TY-143 fans. 1200rpm is about what stock fans do and 2400 is like CLCs sound and perform. The same kind of performance increase as Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme did in above testing giving much better cooling than H110 CLC. Just remember case airflow has to be increased to supply the almost twice as much air to CPU cooler as normal cooler fans use.
Here is ciarlatano's test data from his testing. Keep in mind Swiftech coolers are not CLC. NH-D15 is using stock 1500rpm fan.Edited by doyll - 6/3/16 at 2:59am
