    I was beginning to wonder if you'd confused me with Rickz, lol.

    Aside from that, this is silly.
    1. The H100 is a champ cooler by all means. However, it's not by any stretch of the imagination cheap, and the quality of the fans that come with it originally is decent, but loud as they ramp up. Rickz fixed this by going the extra stretch of replacing the fans with one of the most popular and well-performing "classics" out there.
    2. You make an enormously poor assumption when thinking money isn't an issue. Don't ever make the assumption that someone can just spit in some more money, because that's just automatically ridiculous.
    3. And why the heck should anyone go for the Noctua fans over the Scythe GT fans? If you actually read and figured out what you read, you should've noticed that any issues Rickz would've had with the GTs was entirely bypassed by placing the fans in push config.

    Hey hey, relax now buddy. No need to get your panties in a twist. Yes, the H100 is a decent cooler, but not nearly good enough to validate its price. Especially since the Noctua NH-D14 outperforms it, is cheaper and has better fans. There are other better/cheaper air coolers btw. I'm just not going to list them all. A bit of research should be more than enough.

    The stock fans the H100 comes with are horrible, the screws are too long, which damage your radiator so replacing them is pretty much essential. Putting the fans in push config is a bandage, it doesn't actually fix the problem.

    Since there are better coolers for less money available, I assumed you chose the H100 for aesthetics' sake (as I did), rather than perfomance. That's why I thought the extra few bucks wouldn't matter anyway. Clearly I was wrong, my bad.

    Before we proceed, I think you need to check you're aware of what you're saying (the H100 shares the throne with a lot of coolers, most of which are huge as hell), and who you're talking to (because I sure as hell don't have a H100 lol).

    Yea I meant Rickz, not you. Replying in-between training so I got a bit confused.

    You seem to misunderstand my point, again. I'm not saying the H100 doesn't perform well, I'm saying that cheaper air-coolers perform better are quiter and don't require modifications/extra parts to perform.

    Get it? H100 = good, combined with good coolers and a relatively big wallet. A few other AIR coolers, are better. Visit HardOCP for more info.

    My computer for the next couple months at least. After 7 years or so, I'm finally switching back to Intel, so I'm going to be rebuilding everything. Wires are kind of a mess, but when you're lazy that's about as good as it gets.

    You should probably clean off some dust though, on both the rigs and the surface they're on

    I haven't seen that one before myself. I am curious as to know how well it cools compared to the original Frio and the Frio Advanced. I used to have a Frio, with a stock AMD X6 1055T I was rocking 22 Celsius in my old Xclio Windtunnel case at stock speed, I get like mid to high 20's with my H80 <_<

    I really like how the lid has no logo or anything on it. Just matte black awesomeness.

    I had the shop install the cooler, because of the previously mentioned laziness, but the way its installed the intake fan is very close to the video card, which runs very hot, about 55 just sitting. With it sucking in all that hot air, the cpu sits at about 35 at 30% with a small OC, and sits between 40 and 45 at 100%. One of these days I either need to stop being lazy, or take it back to the shop, if it can be turned.

    You know you can reorient the heatsink so the fans are away from the graphics card right? All you have to do is remove the mounts and face it toward the rear exhaust fan on the case so the fans pull air from inside the case and push it directly to the exhaust fan on the case.

    Edit:

    Here's what it would look like.

    Check the black levels and if it has IPS glow.
    Deep Blacks pretty much ensures it's not IPS.
