H80 if you live in adecent ambient conditions, with the proper fans any of the top coolers is a beast. Coolermaster TPC, X6 elite, Megahlems, DH14, H80 all are excellent. Any top cooler save the H100 or a dedicated loop will 9/10 get you very close to the same overclock/temperatures with overvolting. H100 and similar are in a league of their own, they can just simply absorb far more heat in a given time frame, that and more liquid takes longer to get hotter as well.
I think the differences will be minute given good fans, but there are other coolers that out of the box are close to if not better then the mega as well. DH14 and mega were top coolers and still are, but there is also quite a few coolers that can achieve similar cooling sometimes at a lower price with less hassle of getting the proper fans etc.
