By "watercoolers" you must mean All-In-One water-coolers. By no means is the H100i even close to the "best and higher performance water-coolers in the market"
You sure he has one of the best cooling solutions money can buy? Why are there so many of us wasting money on custom loops then? When will we learn that all you'll ever need for watercooling is a $100 AOI kit. Shame on us.
Arxontas, learn to read and understand context of whats being said. I clearly said he "increased voltage by 40% over stock on insufficient cooling". This statement is 100% ACCURATE. The H100i, along with anything short of DICE, will not be SUFFICIENT ENOUGH to safely handle 1.5vcore on Haswell.
Since, according to you I don't have a clue, why don't you clue me in?
Just to play devils advocate, I'm running 1.525v on water and I'm praying to god it's enough to get me prime stable at 4.8 cause my temps are getting up there and lord knows even if they weren't I'm getting into degradation territory. It's amazing I can pass IBT on maximum at 1.48 but 1.5 was still failing prime blend within an hour. Becoming aggravating. It's amazing what a few hundred MHz can change. 4.6 and I'm stable at 1.36 or something. Yeash.
