Heya guys and girls, been away for a while now, and only just getting back on my PC and posting in the last week, hope everyone's doing good.

Got a question for those of you that moved from high-end air coolers to contained water loops like the Corsair, Antec Hydro series:

My current cooler is great, I love it. Matches and just slightly bests the Mugen 2 in stock layout form. I was thinking of upgrading the fan on it to a high-RPM Scythe Typhoon, or flipping it's position around, and sticking on two Typhoons as push, and a single (Dunno what yet, Slipstream or another Typhoon) as a pull. Either way, with a simple upgrade in push fan in it's current layout, I'll get a few degrees off my current temps, which are perfectly fine.

After seeing the new Corsair H80 and H100, I was considering switching to one of the units, but the price is a bit of a put-off.
I know their respective OEM's are Cool-It and the other company who's name eludes me right now...
Cool-It ECO A.L.C is £40.78
Antec Kuhler 620 is £44.03
H50 is £50.36
H60 is £59.52
H70 is £73.67

So I'm betting the H80 will be more than the H70 naturally.

I saw somewhere on a forum, someone with a Thuban won an Antec Kuhler 620 as a prize, and sold his air cooler, but said the 620 couldn't handle the same 4.2GHz @1.44v as his air cooler.
His options are obviously mounting and changing/adding fans, but still.

Would I see a noticeable difference if I went with a 620 and ramped up the fans on it? Mounting in the front bay.

Or should I just stick with my beast and change up the fans/orientation and be happy with that?

My gut and brain are telling me that my cooler's perfectly fine with whatever I will throw at it, especially after a fan upgrade. But I wanted to get the opinions of those with the same airflow I have, every case is different, and people mount them differently aswell.

Getting a few conflicting thoughts since planning my rig upgrade with upcoming BD release.

Thanks in advance.

any idea what 9cm fan that come with red LED ?? thinking of dual horizontal fan config for my side panel cause apparently, 12cm would not be fit..blocked by HDD and 5.25" cage..or, any workaround to fit it in?

You did everything right. As General E would say, "you know you've done an excellent mod when you can't tell where the factory ends and the mod starts"
