Thornton,
As a H100 user I'm happy to offer my comments for this fine sealed water solution. IMHO this is excellent monies spent and this cooler is being heavily discounted. I'm happy to answer any questions you have.

you say discounted, do you mean its discounted from what its worth or that theres actually somewhere selling it for less than 120? because i have to say although i am not religiously air cooling, and i actually verry much love water cooling, for how powerful the h100 is said to be i would want it to be a full system, not just cpu. i think as of now im just gunna look into setting up my case with all noctua and that noctua heat sink, but if you can prove me wrong in that venture let me know

No way or interest to prove you wrong my friend, the noc's are my best cooling fans and I swear by them! And I hear the CPU cooler is tops as well. My point is the $120.00 that is list is more like 95.00-100.00 on the street or rumored less.

Perhaps I'm just not open minded enough, but I just do not like the idea of any kind of liquid cooling in my case. I know that I've even seen a computer submerged in an aquarium used for cooling, but my mind just doesn't adapt to that kind of idea. Perhaps someone with deeper pockets than mine, and an obsession to clock to the max, would find it acceptable, but I'm not that person.

Perhaps you you hit your nail on it's head ! There really is no right or wrong ! It's an individuals choice AMD vs Intel, ATI VS NVIDIA, Air VS Water, ect.........

i like the idea of it in some scenarios, if you have multiple G cards, 6tb of hdd, 64gb of ram and dual i7 2600ks, i see great need for water cooling, beyond that, its just easier to install with more long term maintenance, oh! and it looks cool, but besides all that lol

Just picked up a Coolermaster Hyper 612. $50. Will let you know - it should be much better than a Hyper 212+

If I go back on air cooling I would choose Noctua for sure. At the present time I only run their fans and they are very quiet and move lots of air. Any thing Noctua cost a little more but you and your computer are worth it.
