It's very good for the price, in terms of cooling to price ratio it can't be beaten.

Obviously if you pay £80 for a closed loop cooler it will perform better rolleyes.gif

Here we go:

I wouldn't touch a Corair H series cooler with a barge pole.
There are complaints everywhere about them... pump problems/noise, fan rattle/noise, generally loud, usb not working, systems dying, RMA replacements DOA, and on, and on, and on. Even on their own forum there are many complaints. And the new H80i / H100i had new buyers complaining as soon as they hit the market! It's mellowed out some now but less than a week ago a guy I know had his new H100i pump die... now how many more will die in the next week, month, couple of months?? And when the pump dies you get no cooling. Air coolers keep on cooling when a fan dies, just not as well... and you can easily put almost any fan on as a temporary fix while you get a new one.

Air coolers (not CLC is air cooling.. just a water system in between CPU and air) are vertually trouble free. Yeah, there are a few problems getting them mounted properly (there are problems getting CLC mounted too) and a few fan problems.. usually after several years of use. But that's about it.

Air coolers are simple and cheaper than Corsair H series.
Simply heatpipes from a block that mounts on CPU with fins on them for air to flow through to take away the heat with a fan or fans added to increase air movement. A good big air cooler can be used passively (no fans) and makes no noise at all... and good fans running at 600-800rpm are almost silent.

Some will go on about how big and massive air coolers are... Well the total cubic mm of a water system and a big "massive" air cooler are almost the same. Difference is air is right over CPU and water has hoses running around like snakes to a "massive" radiator attached to side / top / front / bottom of case... with as many and often more fans than air cooler have.

And the best air coolers are as good as and some are better than Corsair carp.

Air coolers are tired and true... Fans are for the most part tried and true. You know what they both are, how they work and that they have almost no problems.

Air all the way unless you want to spend some serious time researching and are prepared to plop down some major money on a custom water system.

Before I bought an H100 I had this

Arctic Freezer Xtreme Rev.2;

Great cooler air cooler I must say but it will not cool your CPU as good at higher clocks like a H100 would.

Thanks for your reply, it really put some things in perspective.

Now that I have the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo on the list, do you guys know any other coolers besides the water cooling ones that would prob. Fit?
I'm so new to this market that I dont know where to start.

Good cooler but not in the same league with the top air coolers. And of course not as good as H100, but far more dependable.
