Closed loop cooling. H80 or H60?

Hi I finally bought my new system but now i can't decide what cooler to go with.

From the beginning I was going to buy H80 but now I am thinking does I need H80 over H60 for 2500K 4.5-4.7 OC and H80 are 116$ but H60 78$.

My average ambient temperature is 22 degrees Celsius.

So does I need H80 over H60 in push\pull? Is couple degrees worth 38$?

If youre aiming for 4.7GHz id go for the H80.

Are you set on the Hydros? No Aircooling in the back of your mind?

No. Because I have windowed case and air cooler like NH-D14 cover most of the motherboard.
I am ready to spend more for aesthetics.

Alright then, like said my vote goes for the H80 with the overclock youre going for.

Your ears wont have fun with the H60 at higher load

Or maybe i would go with Antec 920 it is little bit cheaper than H80. But both perform very similar.

to equal or surpass the D14 in performance.. neither the H60 or H80 are contenders..
ive run both along with the H50 and H70.. for evaluation and hands-down against the D14
none are even close enough to consider. only the H100 was close with temperatures but the noise
was rotten.
swapped the fans for a lot of different fans (noctua, corsair, artic cooling, silverstone, cooler
master, scythe, bgears, delta, swiftech) .
IMO.. skip the H60/80 and use the H100. note all the comparo to NH-D14 and the H100.
not really many comparos to the H60/80.

My case does not support H100. And I don't want cooling solution equal to NH-D14 but i just want stable 4.5-4.7 oc

A H80 should be fine for 4.5GHz on a 2500k.
