What is better between two ?
I read many problems about the 100i in the Corsair support forum site, can u explain somethings about ?
Seidon is not diffused so i have any feedback about.

All CLC have lots of random problems. Some are leaky straight out the box, sometimes need a new pump, some DOA. Its the risk of going to a cheap all in one water cooler. Thats why you always buy new and get a warranty if you do go with CLC. Most the time if it works for 30 days your good you shouldnt have much problems beyond that

You could always get a swiftech h220 if you can find one.. or still the kraken x60 would still be a better choice over the corsair or cooler master IMO.

I say put the kraken on silent and overclock to silent happiness:

that h100i is going to get noisy and lose fan life over time to be able to perform at the same level, the kraken can be on silent and keep up fan life while still performing well. at much quieter levels.

Or you could just save up and get a custom kit. CLC still aren't as nice as they could be, wish they'd come out with some high quality clc

EDIT:
Nevermind about the swiftech:

Yes, but NZXT did a far better job with the fans than Corsair. This results in the X60 having better performance without much in the way of added noise.

While the H100i has a slight performance advantage over the 240M, it does so at the expense of being literally unbearable in terms of noise. I have often (not so) jokingly referred to the H100i as a really expensive cooler for web browsing only. Once the CPU goes under load and the fans ramp up, the noise is awful. People will tell you to just keep the fans low....but then what is the point? You may as well save yourself a hundred dollars and just go with a Hyper 212 EVO to get that kind of performance. The 240M, while not quiet, isn't an absolute nightmare in terms of noise like the H100i.

I can't really remark on the reliability on any of these three units. I have had no problems with any of them, but they are only used for benchmark comparisons and not on a daily basis.

As dmfree88 mentioned, the X60 is a great performer on its Silent setting. The X60 on Silent settings will actually perform just about on par with the H100i on Extreme settings.

Cooler master eisberg prestoge 240l is what you need it is 1 degree warmer than swiftech h220 and performs as good as x60

performance is not my priority, the reability of pump and its noise are the important points

If your concern is more geared toward reliability and noise.....then a Noctua NH-U14S would be significantly better than anything mentioned here and deliver similar performance at a lower price.

WHAT?? not gonna happen.. even if you go with the Noctua NH-D14 it still will not compare to any of these perfomance-wise....

although for longevity the NH-D14 will last WAY longer then any CLC pump and does have great overclocking abilities. Its about equal to an h80 and is a great heatsink. But still cant compare to an x60 or h100i

The thermaltake water 3.0 is another CLC to consider vs the hydro, seidon, and kraken lines. The eisberg and swiftech expandable AIOs are cut from a different cloth.

An H80? Uh....no.

As someone who owns all of the aforementioned coolers and benches them on a regular basis, I can say that the performance difference between an H100i and NH-D14 is negligible at best. Usable performance (as in, the noise level is one you can stay in the same room with) actually favors the NH-D14.

Why people continually overestimate the performance of CLC solutions is beyond me.....cool little tubes and multi-colored LEDs don't make performance....they make cool little tubes and multi-colored LEDs.

Even POC, who is probably the most CLC loving site around, found exactly the same results using NH-U14S and 12S with dual fans.
