Hi Guys,

Noob question here, i am getting parts for my new build and i have decided on a i5 2500k, 8gb ram, and a 6950 gpu, in either a 650d or a raven 3!

Will a corsair h100 be excessive? or will a h80 or h60 be suitable?

I do plann to overclock but not excessivly!

Spelling is awful as i the typing as the laptop i am on is dying!

I just got h100, but its not installed yet lol. According to the box, its not THAT much better then h80. But shop around, I got my h100 for £82

If i could afford a custom build i would! Th onlyconcern is id rather only take up one fan space than two, unless the performance is that much better!

Antec Kúhler H2O 920 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Would be your best bet ;)

To conclude, Antec have done a very good job with the KÜHLER H2O 920. There is no denying that the performance is present. However, the concept of ALC coolers still has some flaws and until those issues are rectified, most namely noise, I will find it hard recommending such a unit over a high end air cooler from a performance/noise perspective.

Personally I wouldn't bother with any of ALC coolers, if you want the best cooling get a Silver Arrow(if you can find one) or a Noctua NH-14.
