I have never had one (FRIO) in hand, but from the reviews I have seen it can cool pretty well, but the cooling comes at the cost of decibels - it is reported to be very loud full speed.

It is a shame those air coolers are the only options. Other custom builders will give you better options like Noctua, Phaenteks, Thermalright and others. For the CPU you are considering, you should...

I once received a check for a class action lawsuit for one dollar. I bet the lawyers (and the postal service) got a little more than that.

If you plan to overclock any significant amount with a Haswell, yes - a closed loop even like the Swiftech H220.

Oops, I see I am a bit too late. What you bought should serve you well!

Asus Maximus VI Hero. You can get it for a good price -sometimes lower than the Asus Z80 pro - especially in a bundle. I like that I can control 3 case fans and a CPU...
