There was a D14 deal recently...69usd.
The Seidon is actually pretty good, and even has a fill port...that's relatively interesting. You'd void warranty though if you alter it physically.

I personally think it's either go Swiftech H220 or high end air cooler. I have a H70 core (Got it on sale @ $40 ca) and at that price, it was better then my hyper 212 evo. Swiftech not only gives your an AIO liquid cooling, but also gives you the ability to expand and add. If you picked up a H220, you can literally customize it to your own. All the other CLC brands are those who want liquid cooling, but the "set and forget" kinda thing.

High end air coolers will always be better then CLC imo. NH D14 cools just as good as any 280mm CLC with less noise and no chance of leakage.

This is how the cooling should go as I feel: high end air< H220 < Full blown custom WC kit.

Maybe due to the fans that came with my H80, but they where VERY loud on max. Even medium they where loudish, but my CM 212 EVO on max is dead quiet.

Hint, get new fans! Its possible. thumb.gif
Mine just happen to be very quiet, which I'm ok with. I never hear my H100 at all, I hear my GPU... whoever told me Nvidia cards are quieter then ATI cards needs a smack. kungfu.gif

Can do ^^ Other than that it was a decent cooler tbh, though my CM 212 EVO seems just as good if not better than it, if it wasn't for the size of it.
