Mr Haswell is a little too HOT!!! (Advice on an AIO Water Cooler for my new 4770k Please)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there All. Can anyone who knows their AIO Liquid Coolers offer advice on what to replace my old Cooler Master V8 Air Cooler with please? I have a Cooler Master HAF X case and the rest of the specs are on my rig build, I have been reading up on the AIO Liquid Coolers and have a current short list:

Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige
Cooler Master Seidon 240m
Corsair H110
Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme
Don't know much about Swifttech products but like the look of the H20-X20/Hd Edge/Ultima Stuff

I don't mind paying a bit (within reason) for a really good cooler but I'm kinda lost as to which one will do the best job? The only thing I'm decided on is that I want a large, dual fan radiator so as to get the best results. The reviews are fine and all but none of them seem to compare ALL of the coolers I'm considering. I am also completely open to new ideas and any suggestions you may have, I just hope to overclock my new cpu to the limits!

Thanks for reading and any help will be HUGELY appreciated.

hey man,
the H110 wont fit in the HAFx, first hand experience.
a friend of mine bought it and we had to return it because unless you mod it it only allows 120mm spacing, 140mm mounting up top requires modding which is useless to mount a 280mm rad.

the eisberg is expandable, but with a 240mm rad there isnt much to expand to; when you get a gpu block a better rad etc etc you would already be close to the price of a full loop. seidons look cheap imo, so i would say H100i is better. never adviced anything of thermaltake's, i had a V3 case and a tin coke can would've been better built.


also, you can install a 360mm rad in the HAFX without modding, so you can get a swiftech H20 or the xspc raystorm kits (which are like $250) if money is no issue, both would be better than the AIO coolers thumb.gif

hope it helps!

I run the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme, very easy to install. Reliable and quiet, temps high 60's at 4.5ghz on a 2700K.

Maybe if it was made by thermaltake, but it is an Asetek OEM all-in-one. Just like the H60 and H70 corsairs of the past.
