    Corsair H80 or H80i GT?

    Hi all,
    I have a chance to get a new H80 for £40..... But I've had my eye for a while on either the H100i GTX for £49 more or should I just get the H80i GT for £30 more?

    My set up is:
    Asus Sabertooth P67
    I7 unlocked (never been overclocked - hopefully will when I get a watercooler)
    2 x 550 ti running in SLI (sometimes... only when I play games - very rarely)

    You haven't specified if water cooling is necessary, so IMO here's a better option:
    Go for the Noctua NH-D15. This is easily the best air cooler on the market and will perform much better than the H80/H80i and even the H100i, which is excellent considering it's ~£65 on Amazon. It'll also run MUCH quieter than AIO liquid coolers, and will easily handle an overclocked i7.

    Get the H80 at £40. That's a great deal.

    The other two offer tiny performance increases but vast jumps in budget.

    The Noctua truly is a beast but it's £30 more than the H80, can potentially cover ram slots, puts a lot of weight on the motherboard and may be too large for the OP's case. I also believe that in some case it fouls graphics cards in the first PCIE slot?
