With all that GPU horsepower it would be a shame to waste it on a 1080p monitor, go with a 1440p monitor biggrin.gif

Totally agree about getting a better monitor, but still would say H220 vs. H100i. There are a number of 27inch monitors out there, it just depends on how much you want to spend.

Looking much better - a.k.a. more for less.

Do you know for certain that the H100i will comfortably fit in that case? I have the HAF 912 (which I know is different), and really wish I had the H80i instead. The H100 could fit if the motherboard and Ram wasn't in the way.

Edited: Nevermind was looking at the wrong CM case. That HAF X 942 has loads of room.

If Microcenter is an option, don't they have those Catleap Clones now?

I would probably go with the new H220 but I just can't wait that long, now if it comes out within the next few days then absolutely

Oh yeah that HAF X case is an absolute beast it will actually easily support the Kraken x60 which is the largest closed loop system on the market right now, I will be losing the 2x 200mm exhaust fans on top to install the h100i but those 4 fans have a max of 90.3 cfm which should be more than adequate, I was actually tossing the Kraken and H100i in the air until I saw several benchmark tests between the two and discovered that the Kraken only gives you 1-3 more degrees cooler temps

Yeah, if I had that case, I think I would get an Iguana and dedicate half to it. Get a nice overclock going to keep him warm while Folding.

Why not go with the Kraken X60 or Corsair H110? In most benchmarks it's between 5-8 degrees cooler.
