Windows 7: H80 or Silver Arrow

I tested my H100 vs Silver Arrow SB-E vs Phanteks PH-TC14PE. First test was with stock fans. For the second test I added a Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000 to the heatsinks and 4 to the H100 in push/pull. The results are here

Tw33k, I bet the ultra Kaze fans were loud. But, I sure would like to know how you got such good results with the H100. I have one I have tried 3 different type fans on in every configuration possible, and I get bad results. The funny thing is it does not matter what configuration or fan type I use. The results are exactly the same. But the Ultra Kaze fans put out a lot of air, but they are expensive. You have to buy headphones to use them.

Have you tried replacing the TIM and re-seating it? I didn't do anything out of the ordinary but I do have good air flow (lots of intake fans with only the H100 as exhaust). As for the UK 3000s, they aren't quiet but I don't even notice them now unless I focus on the sound. They just fade into the background.

At least 10 times. I've used AS5, Noctua NH-1, and IC Diamond.

+1 on that. Based on reviews, I spent a lot of money on coolers that could not do the job. Right now on Frosty Tech, they have the Corsair H 100 with 2 fans listed as the #1 cooler for Intel chips. I have one installed right now with 4 fans. Yesterday I hit 82C at 4.5. I know a lot of people get good results with them, but not me. Of course, I really think that some CPUs just run hotter than others, and some a lot hotter. I can say that I have never found an air cooler that will beat the D14, and that includes the enclosed water coolers. It does help if you live in a cooler climate. Florida does not fall into that catagory.
Ambient temps have a BIG influence on cooling as I see you have found out. A Custom waterloop will work better than the premade variety but having said that I have used the H80 modified to fit a res into the loop (along with Noctua fans in push/pull config) with good results on a x58 based system.
If your in a room with high ambient temps tho it will negate the cooling properties of whatever cooling you use so you will need to have to wind back your clocks in summer and vice versa in winter.
