Which AIO?

Hey,
for my new rig I'll be using an AIO for the CPU but I just can't decide which one to get.
I really like the H105 from Corsair because of it's thickness but I don't really like the look of the pump (with that colored ring). I also considered the Kraken X60 from NZXT as an option but heard that the pump is not that good (makes strange noises) but it looks soooo good (call me shallow but looks are very important to me).

So what do you guys think, which one should I get?

I would like to say the H100i as that is what like to recommend (best look and great cooling personally) and depends on much over-clocking you want to go for. I think looks matter a lot, if it is not right it will just bug you for the next few years you have it sitting in your computer. All dual rad AIO a very good just think what you rate higher, greater over-clocking or looks. It also depends if you are running heavy cpu programs and need that over-clock to be maxed out or not.

Firstly which CPU are you using? Secondly will you be overclocking?

If your not overclocking you could always go for the H75 the pump is the same as the H105, and the H105 is overkill if your not clocking it.

The Guvnor himself has done various reviews on CPU coolers. Search H100i and you will find it.

TTL also mentions a bundle you can get from special tech. Cooler and fans.

I will say it again, I would get the H100i, very good, looks good, and get 2 sp120 perf if you want temps down and then you change the rings to your colours and will look great in any system. Still get a brilliant over-clock and look sexy. Will get your temps down loads as still a dual AIO.

Sounds good to me, but I'll keep waiting a bit for other suggestions

Im using a H100 on my 8150 and its working great. Im at 4.5 GHz @ 1.39V and its good enough that I can keep it on low fan setting and it keeps my CPU in the low to mid 40's during gaming. The H100i is a marginally better cooler so I would second Vanner's suggestion for it based on my own experience which has been very good.

If you want to really overclock an 8350 to its very limit a h105 would be a good bet. IMO a swiftech H320 would have been perfect but they're a pain to get hold of.
You want a thick rad and decent fans. Thats my experience of a FX9590, which is basically a maxxed out 8350 . It started off with a h100i but the guy wanted quiet so he ended up getting a noctua NH-D14 cooler.
