    The new Zalman cooler is very efficient for your processor. And if your Noctua NH-D14 has the option for a Socket 2011 the premium cooler will be the best cooler and thus you will get an added advantage because u already have it.congrats..!!!!!

    Should I recycle my Noctua NH-D14 or should I opt for Rev C Megahalems?? I have also heard that Corsair H100 is well-regarded but the only worry is about water sprinkle. What should I do???

    I will tell you not to opt for corsair water coolers until and unless they display their mounts. Once I had H80, the sucker took away too much time and force to mount on my P9X79WS.it was really frustrating and annoying too.it will not help to enhance the overclocking of your Intel core i7 3960X/3930K.

    Prolimatech has introduced Rev C Megahalems which are well known in the people for its high performance coolers. This comes with redesigned mounting mechanisms. They are bringing support for AMD processors. Engineers have increased the mounting pressure to extra 90 pounds to enhance the quality. Thanks to the new mounting system they are now easily compatible with almost every Intel sockets and with every platforms. they have given high grade thermal compound and fan clips to easily overclock. It will be therefore be a good cooler to overclock your processor easily.

    Corsair H100 liquid cooling system is an entry level and very affordable. These coolers are good but the performance is battling a small radiator with its thin tubing and lacks coolant because they lack reservoirs. The fan is very noisy and irritating. They have internally regulated control for pump and fans.

    Corsair H100 liquid cooling system will cost you around $103.74 and Prolimatech’s Rev C Megahalems will cost u approx. $69.99.it is a smart choice to buy Prolimatech’s Rev C Megahalems because it is not very costly and has great added features.

    I am in two minds. i have to stick with my Noctua NH-D14 as I came to know that these are the best coolers in the business. But I am attracted towards Prolimatech’s Rev C Megahalems also because it is not very costly and I really liked its suggestions. U have made me more confused now but I am happy that I have two items to choose from. Thanks a lot for your suggestions guys.Really appreciated.
