The main reason I got the H220 was to have something that could cool my GPU also. It is perfect for those wanting to do the CPU and GPU without going custom water.

If your sig rig is still correct, you have the same as me, 3770k 5.0 with 1.41v. You have much better temps than me though. My hottest core for my 24 hour stability Prime95 test was 77c.

So with great temps already I don't see any need for you to upgrade to anything unless you want to add your GPU to the loop.

Thats 69c for 4.8ghz @ 1.26v, i think at sig speeds and volt it gets between 75-80c. I got a h60 on the gpu but might add it if i buy the h220.

Ok, then we are basically getting the same temps. From my testing the H220 was no better or worse than the H100i, they were very similar in their cooling capacity. I think there is only so much you can do with a single 240 quiet rated radiator.

I plan on adding a 320 rad and gpu to the loop at some point, which is what the H220 was really designed to do. So since you will probably not get significantly better temps just switching your cpu cooler for the H220, I am not sure that makes sense. However, it is a great choice if you want one loop to cool the CPU and GPU. Hope that helps.
