These would be imo amongst the best choices depending on what you want to spend.
thanks, I'm open to any and all sugestions.

The Deep Cool one is an extremely good deal at $33 incl shipping atm. It's better than the 212, and also has a better fan and way better build quality and neat dark nickle plating.

The Phanteks is the best air cooler atm, so $80 is not a bad deal. It's also better than the H80i...

The Thermalright HR-02 and Havik 140 are right inbetween and are also good deals...

If heat from the gpus is a concern I think I'd consider the clc since you can have it cooled by external air. I'm sure a decent tower and thoughtfully done case cooling would be fine as well, though. I agree with others who've pointed out that you can do better in the price range than the EVO. Elohim's suggestions were good.

If I were to get a clc these days I'd go with an H90 with a TY-141 slapped on it. I think that's gonna be my next unnecessary upgrade.

I wouldn't get a Corsair H series because they have a long history of problems... more problems than any other cooler on the market.

any proof of that?

The corsair H series AIO water cools are great, worth what you pay and come with a good warranty that even protects your whole system from the damage a leaking cooler could do. and for 5 years smile.gif

The best option in my opinion as you will get great cooling at what I consider to be very quite

You are entitled to your opinion.

Facts are at full speed H100 is 55dBA; Silver Arrow SB-E is 38dBA and 1c warmer. Put TY-143 2500rpm fans on the Silver Arrow SB-E making it a Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme and it's 56dBA (1dBA more than H100) and 7c cooler.

jump in to 3:40 for results

i7 3820 @4.75GHz
Temperature is delta.

H100 . . . . . . . . 41c 2500rpm. . . . . . . . 55dBA 2
SA SB-E . . . . . . 42c 1100rpm & 1300rpm 38dBA TY-150 & TY-141
SA SB-E Extreme 34c 2500rpm. . . . . . . . 56dBA 2x TY-143

Review after review shows the CLC cooler at about same cooling ability as top air coolers... and top air coolers cost less and are generally quieter too.

New Swiftech H220 looks to be a move in the right direction with AIO cooling. Not better cooling but much better built (60,000hr MTBF 6w pump vs 2w other CLC's use; brass & copper radiator not aluminum) and designed so you can open it up and add additional waterblocks and radiators if wanted/needed.
