H100i or H105

Hello all,
As the title says i want your opinion on which one should i choose.
To begin i own a H80i atm but after 1 year of usage my LED is not working properly. So i went to the store where i bought it to ask for replacement.
They said to bring the unit there to check it etc..

I also asked if they proceed to a replacement if i would be able to pay the difference and but another unit like a H100i and they said yes..
So here is the question with 10 euros i will be able to take a H100i and with 20 if i am not mistaken a H105.

The point is which one worth investing on considering the extra i have to pay.
The lack of the link and the fact that i will only be able to run the fans on the H105 on 7V with a fan speed reducer which is around 1600rpm does it worth it?
The new unit will go on a i5 4670k which i am planning to OC at a reasonable level 4.4 for example ( if i get lucky maybe more) and i have an Arc midi r2 case so compatibility with the H105 is not an issue i think.

Only you can decide if its worth it or not dude, Ive reviewed them so you can look at the graphs and see how they perform.

The H105 will perform marginally better at lower fan RPM though.....

oh right sorry mate

i would say get the H100i and run the fans a a lower speed that way you'll have a bit more overclocking head room if not you'll have lower temps about 5° to 10° or so

also you'll have a cooler temps for the summer

just my opinion...
