He already owns the NH-D14. He's shooting for 4.5Ghz on Ivy. You gave bad advice, and that's being polite man.
Agreed that cooler is top of the food chain air cooling. he may gain 1-2*C going to a h100i if hes lucky some people see higher temps with the switch.
His cooler is overkill for 4.5ghz if anything but a couple things you can do to drop temps and gain stability.
Take the core voltage down - turn off your offset mode is what i usually do- bump your VCCSA and VCCIO slightly can stabilize things between mem and cpu at times yielding lower stable vcore usage-
Get some good thermal paste like mx-4 or gelid and remount that cooler with better paste a solid mount can drop temps considerably over a bad mount.
