Post Which to buy?

I'm looking to get a simple AIO cooler.
At first I was thinking a h100i, but them Swiftech announced their h220, and after seeing TTL's review I had decided on the h100i.
Now that it is time to actually buy it I've seen a lot of reviews saying if you change the fans the h220 is better?

Could just do with a little advice, in your opinions which is better?

P.S
My cpu isn't overclocked yet and everything is running at stock.

would go with the h100i personally
the temp. difference is not that much iirc, and the h100i looks better imo
also the tubes on the h220 are a bit too long imo, just looks a bit messy

Well according to Linus, using the same fans on both coolers,the h220 beats it by 9°,and beats the h110 by 5°

This is what I seen but the long tubing and what not puts me off it,
he used Noctua fans anyway not SP120's and they're very ugly fans

Just give the Swiftech Helix 120 PWM a Shot.
I bought two for my Alphacool NexXxos XT45 and this Fans moving a damn lot of Air, even in low RPM. (Config: Pull with 7mm Shroud)

don't you call the noctuas ugly! they are inner beauties
nah seriously, those fans are so good i can overlook the colour, the only problem with them is the price tag, 20€ for one fan is pretty hefty.
