The NH-D14 is better performance wise. Short of the H100 and the like, nothing has been able to beat the NH-D14 for a while now. But I'd still go with the H80 just for the aesthetic appeal, it's like having a gamecube hanging off your motherboard with the NH-D14, you'd only be giving up a couple of degrees; but that's just me.

Either one is fine, the NH-D14 is slightly better but it is huge and if you have tall RAM heatsinks you might not be able to use all the fans.

NH-D14 all the way. Why worry about having even the possiblity of the leak in your system.

Because even if you somehow got one to leak corsair will almost always replace what THEIR product breaks in your system?

Yeah it's huge, but now you get to brag to everyone that you have a "Big One".

I was concerned about noise when I bought the H70 but I switched out the fans and it basically silent now. Love the unit and glad I didn't go with a massive cooler.
