Need Help With Water Cooler H100i H80? Kraken?

I have a Corsair 600T and will have to do some moving around to fit a h100i...I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations as to what cooler would fit snug in my case with about the same performance of a h100i. Thanks!

I would just go with the H100i because I'm familiar with it, and it performs very well and very quietly (if you replace the stock fans, that is). The Kraken X60 (280mm rad) will outperform the H100i (240mm rad), but mainly because of higher fan RPMs and more surface area. Most CLCs perform relatively similar, so pick the one you like the best.

Noctua NF-F12s are the absolute best performance/dB. If you don't like the color scheme (they're brown and tan D:), the Corsair SP 120 Quiet Edition fans will work fine too (black color scheme with colored rings you can switch out)

I dont think the Kraken X60 would fit in your case due to 20mm spacing instead of 15mm spacing found in corsair cases. I would get an H110 to fit in the case!

Went with the h100i running pretty decent at the moment...Clocked at 4.2 with 1.265 v-core, cant really get it to go any further at the moment, may have gotten a bad chip or just need more case fans.
