    Default Cooling X61 vs H320 vs H100i

    New to this, specially the cooling. Which one would be the best choice out of this 3?

    Also would I be able to double up on it and use a second one for the graphics card?

    Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler - $99.95

    NZXT Kraken X61 106.1 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler - $136.99

    Swiftech H320 55.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler - $149.04

    I love when questions are this easy.

    The H320 is an entire world away from the two others in terms of cooling performance, noise and expandability....not to mention that every component of the H320 is vastly superior to the other two choices - significantly better pump, cooling block and rad.

    As far as the GPU, with the H320, since it is open loop and expandable, you can simply add a GPU block, no need to add another cooler. We are talking a real GPU block, made to cool your particular GPU, not a one-size-fits none solution with no VRM cooling. You wind up with an actual loop rather than a CLC plus another CLC that is totally ill-fitted and rather looks like someone threw a dead octopus in your case.

    So....

    H320 - better performance, significantly quieter, expandable, easily add real GPU block for custom loop, easily modified for looks
    H110i/X61 - downgraded performance, significantly louder, no expandability, no VRM cooling for GPU, downgraded GPU performance, looks like dead octopus or plate of squid ink spaghetti when you add the second for GPU

    Really a no-brainer.

    You can always go with EKWB GPU blocks. They have good performance and are $50-$60 cheaper then komodo. I have two of them on my GTX 780, no complaining.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    However.....some of the EVGA boards are completely non-standard and will only work with EVGA Hyrocopper blocks. Swiftech actually makes them for EVGA. I have a 770 Classified with that issue.

    I say the go with the H320 and the Komodo-NV-LE Titan block. The Komodo comes with the black plate everything you need unlike EK which is why the lower price.
    You don't know me and that's the way i like it!

    The difference with the Komodo blocks is they come with the back cover. completed 100% coverage block. Some of the EkWB blocks are more of a 3/4 block than a 100% full cover block. I have both. Cant complete about either.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, I have those 3/4 WB, but I got them real cheap: 2x GPU WB (Black Acetal) + 2x Back plates, with total cost (shipped by DHL 4 days to Peru), of $305.

    Sometimes, living in Peru has its advantages e.g. cheap bear (one six pack = $6), EK blocks/parts are cheaper...
