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.

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

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.
