I've owned both a H100i and a Silver Arrow and both are really similar, performance wise. 
The Silver Arrow performed a little bit better, but that's because the fans on my H100i are spinning at 600 RPM to avoid noise. 


TBH I really prefer the easier installation of the H100i. My SA was a PITA to reseat.




Now if you want a air cooler, just get the cheaper (between the top performers) that you can find. For me it was the SA because I got it for 50$.

Those air coolers are nice in that they last virtually forever, are almost completely silent and you never have to worry about them leaking all over your motherboard. But man they're huge and I really do like having all that open room in my case.

Yeah same here. That's the main reason why I switched to a CLC.

I've got a 100i with the fans mounted on top of a Corsair 600T case. They don't fit inside with the Maximus V mobo (blocked by the RAM sticks). There's just enough space under the 600T screen to fit without them open to bare air. I started out with the 100i fans pushing into the case but reconfigured now so only the radiator fans are exhaust (front, rear fans push into the case - PSU exhausts out the bottom but as it's an AX1200i it rarely runs at stock clock). Tried it yesterday and seems a bit cooler but no great shakes. Fans on top are running at higher RPM's now though so I have to look into that....

You can only adjust to your circumstances.

I have a CM scout 2 case with my H100i radiator placed on the outside of the case and the fans on the inside pulling air in due to space constraints with my Sabretooth z87 board. I also have one fan on the outside pushing air in. the case has a handle on the top that prevents me from placing another fan on the radiator.

So with that I am averaging 52c under load with Aida64 and an ambient temp of about 25c ( no AC in my place, just open windows & ceiling fans) and a idle temp of about 28c-34c depending on how long I allow the PC to idle.

As for the H100i the setting I'm using is quiet mode. even during Aida64 testing. My rig is silent. about 1000rpms..

I also Delidded my i7-4770 and used Arctic silver 5 on die and IHS... So you know... that helped too..


Case: CM scout 2
Widows 8 PRO 64bit
Motherboard: Asus Sabretooth z87
CPU: i7-4770 delidded running @ 4.5 with 1.04 VCORE
Cooling: H100i with 3 fans, 2 stock fans and one Cougar on outside, running in quiet mode setting
Case Fans: 2 Corsair AF 120s and one Cougar Vortex PWM (good choices, EXTREMELY QUIET)
Mem: 16G G-skill Trident 2400mhz
Vid: Asus Geforce GTX 760- will SLI soon
SSD: Samsung 840 pro 256Gigs boot drive
HDD: 2 2TB Barracudas in Raid 0
PSU: Power & Cooling Silencer 950W. Not modular but I worked it out. Looks good.
