Noctua are a brand that I've heard a lot of people recommend. The only problem is, they're a bit ugly.

Noctua stuff is great, and very quiet. Have one of the their coolers myself although the looks aren't for everyone.

Otherwise yeah, the Hyper 212+ is a very solid buy.

Don't do it in a hotel room though or you'll end up like I did with a bill for £2,854.

The Megahelem 2 is just as effective and costs less. Plus it is less fiddly.

H100 was a pain to install.  Not sure if the screws were aligned when I was screwing, awkward hand positions to try and get the screwdriver in.  Bleh.

Yer can understand with H100 and the rad. Mine was more easy because I have mine installed on the back of case blowing out. But yer can see why H100 would be a pain.
