Out of the H110I GTX or the 115i GTX and the X61 the GTX performance wise and the Kraken noise wise.

I have some people on the forums saying that the x61 will cool better and both are fairly noisy? Could u link me something comparing those 2/3 coolers?

Just so you have an idea the corsair H115i which is the newer H110i GTX when in performance mode will outperform the X61 but will be louder by around 9-10 db.

If H115i is in quiet mode, the X61 will perform better. Take into consideration that the X61 has a variable speed pump which you can reduce speed which translates to less noise.

This are very similar as both are made by asetek. X61 has a 6 year warranty and H115i a 5 year warranty.

Neither are quiet, if you want quiet either go for a HSF or a AIO cooler like the EK Predator.

The best air coolers: Noctua NH-15 and Alpenföhn Olymp.

Best HSF? Noctua NH-D15 and Scythe Fuma(depends on how you mount it)

Best AIO? EK Predator and Swiftech X2.

As Sanic mentioned, the Alpenföhn Olymp is absolutely amazing and beats the D15 in the reviews, but I don't think it's possible to get in North America.

If you live in Europe though you can get it.

I actually kind of like it :P

Well the heat sink anyways. The fans are awful. Why they put sleeve bearings in there makes no sense to me.

I'd go with the EKWB Predator or Thermaltake Water 3.0, you could do also do a custom.
