I Fineally Decided on a Water cooler
I kept looking at reviews and the Corsair H-100 kept comeing out on top specially with the load tempertures.I am planning on running at 5 gigs and I think the Corsair H-100 will give me the best tempertures.I kept going between the Antec 920 and the Corsair H-70,but newegg had the Corsair H-100 for $115 and Amazon had it for $97.The Corsair H-70 was $80 and it did not come with fans plus it has a smaller Radiator.The $104 Antec KÜHLER H2O 920 came in at a close secound ,but the larger radiator on the Corsair H-100 is what sold it for me plus the Five year warranty and I got it at a pretty good price.All the updated reviews showed that some of them were close at idle tempertures ,but with a heavy load on them the Corsair H-100 always came out winner by a good bit on some of them.Now I jsut need a couple of pieces to finish ny new set-up a 256mb SSD drive and two GTX-680's unless the GTX-690 comes down which I doubt that ,it will more then likely go up.

Only 1 problem with that ..... hope ya didnt buy it cause the new thermaltake water 2.0 extreme could be the better buy cause of the thicker rad it will have. See the posting about them on the front page of the site & my thread about it in the water cooling section.

I read about them and I don't think it will be any better if any just a 1C maybe 2C better,IMO I don't think it will be any better. T.T. Exetreme sales for $140 and just has a year warranty,and the Corsair H-100 says it has a Five year warranty. I bought it for $98 .The Thermaltake Radiator Dimensions are 270mm x 120mm x 38mm and the Corsair H-100 Radiator Dimensions are 275mm x 122mm x 27mm.they are pretyy close in surface area when you find the total surface area of each Radiator.Plus my motherboard would never fit a 38mm in it ,27mm is going to be tight.

H100 will beat the new cooler, mark my words. It looks like a rebadged H70...

No i think terry is talking about the new double thick 240 rad that they are coming out with to compete with corsair but none the less good luck and let us know how it works :thumb:

Go with the H100. Looking at close up pics, the H100 appears to be waay better quality than the TT. The only problem is, you're going to love water cooling so much that you will want a custom loop on your next build lol.

Like wise.... went from a h60 to a raystorm 240 haha:whistle:

well i went the other way i built custom loops fro 4 years then moved to a pre-built unit cause it doesn't have to be cleaned out every 6 months is all but your right when you say the customs get way better cooling then a pre-built

Yep I don't think I want to go that far and the new video cards I am looking to get should run a lot cooler the Gigabyte GTX-680 with it's cutom 3 fan set-up .The CoolerMaster 212EVO does a wonderful job for a Heatsink fan.But I want that 5gigs and can not run it with the tempertures I am getting with the 212 EVO.Is it just me or does the thermaltake water 2.0 extreme look cheap.I mean they have no more trust in it ,but to give it only a one year warranty.Plus it is selling for a $140,I don't think it will be $40 better if at all.But who knows it may be great ,I just like the reviews I seen on the Corsair H-100 and could not find any on the thermaltake water 2.0 extreme .At least it comes with soft ware which I think you have to buy something extra for the H-100.,But I could always just use my motherboard or buy a fan controller or get different fans if it is to loud.I already have 4 scythe 110CFM laying around and a couple of silverstone 110cfm,So I will make something work.If I can keep my tempertures around 60c at 5gigs then I will be a happy camper.
