which cooler has more overclocking headroom the h100 or the 212 evo?
what overclocks can i achieve with an h100 or a hyper 212?
Also what will the temps be?
CPU: i7 2600k
Motherboard: Asus p8p67 deluxe
Yeah the H100 is a beast !!!
H100 is roughly 80% of the performance of a custom water cooling loop. That said, it would be better to go with the h100 if you're looking to overclock your CPU as you'll get better cooling performance from the H100, especially versus the Hyper 212. However, if you're looking for a cheap way to get a decent overclock, you definitely can't go wrong with the Hyper 212 heatsink.
Basically what it comes down to is what you're willing to spend. If money is no issue, go with the H100.
also what would be a max voltage i should push a 2600k to?
go to page 78 it say absolute max 1.5200V some people note degradation at 1.45v so i sugest to not go over 1.45V for 24/7 use (depending on Vid of your chip this voltage will bring you to approx: 4.7-4.8ghz
h100. it keeps my cpu cooled like a champ
Also look at the Thermaltake Water2.0 Extreme. Similar to the H100, but a bit beefier in the radiator, so more cooling surface area.
The Thermaltake is made by Asetech. Same as Zalmen and Antec water coolers. Along with earlier H series from Corsair. The H80 and H100 are from CoolIT. Corsair changed companies because of reliability issues. So, I would not recommend the Thermaltake unit.
My info showed the builder change with Corsair had more to do with cost. CoolIT simply has a lower cost to build. And Asetek is suing CoolIT for stealing patented designs on these exact parts.
I have no regrets with my H100, my CPU is always cool... don't even need to put it on full so there is no noise issue either
I honestly thought his question about an Air Cooler vs a Water Cooler was rhetorical. BTW: The Hyper 212 isn't the best air cooler. I believe that would be the Dark Rock Pro 2 or the Arctic i3, at least for socket 1155. The game changes a bit with socket 2011.
I really hate the constant grinding noise of the pump at 12v even at idle so, i much prefer air coolers even though space issues. I´ll consider AIO´s with a variable PWM pump like the new Swiftech or NZXT.
I'll pitch another recommendation for the Corsair H105. It lost the USB control node that the H100/H100i had to interface with CorsairLINK. However, using the motherboard to control fan speeds, I just left the pump on at the full 12V. And it is silent.
It actually gets noisier the slower it gets.
The H105 is also significantly thicker, and cools beats anything else Corsair has on the market right now short of the H110.
