[Upgrading]Thermaltake Armour 6000, EVGA X58 Classified, i7-920, Use Corsair H80i or H100i?

Hello all, deciding to infuse a few more dollars into my 2008 tower build and trying to figure out a few things and hoped to get some advice from more experienced hands.

I have a V8 heat-sink on my i7-920 chip and have been eyeballing the Corsair products for some time now. However, i am not sure which to use based upon space and performance between the Corsair H80i and H100i products.

I have a Thermaltake Armour 6000 series tower with a top-rear mounted power supply. Does anyone have any suggestions for helping me to decide to upgrade my rig with either product?

Thanks,

Weed

Welcome to OCN friend !! Please fill out your rig's specs in your user profile so we can better help you. Just click on your username at the top right of the screen and go to add rig/manage rig or whatever it says, I can't recall exactly.

According to the pictures of your case, I think the new H80i would do you a lot of good. From what I understand it cools nearly on par with the older model H100 and is 5c or more better than the older H80. You can mount that puppy right underneath your psu bay. Basically, anywhere you can put a 120mm fan you can put your H80i. I believe it would take some modification to mount that H100i. You should see a very nice improvement with that upgrade in the cooling department. The CM V8 is a decent cooler but that would make a nice difference for you.

Thanks for your reply. I will update my profile ASAP!

Thanks for the info, and advice. NE has the H80i on sale and I have been waffling on doing anything to the box for some time.

Upgrading now......
