Maybe i'm blind but were is the Noctua NH-D14 on the chart.
I can see many others but not the one so Highly used when thinking of High End Air Cooling.

It's at about the middle of the chart for idle temps on page 11, and 4th on load temps. On page 12, it's a little bit higher up the chart for idle temps and 4th on load temps.

Really pleased with my H100i keeps my FX8350 overclocked nice and cool. H75 also looks like it will do a good job as long as you don't go to wild with your overclocks

H100i is nice, although I have a custom backplate/mounting couldn't stand the stock ones. Did a bolt through with washers for height adjustments and lapped the base as well as the CPU. Shaved off 7C compared to stock. Max temps 68c on OCCT. Try IC Diamond for thermal paste does wonders..

Pity no Swiftech h220 on the charts!

A few questions come to mind with all AIO's, full custom water loop contains a reservoir for a reason. What is the liquid durability in these AIO's? Can the liquid be replaced/topped up if needed without voiding warranty? If not, what is the life expectancy of an AIO due to it's liquid limitations (ie: evaporation, clogging, etc)?

The pumps tend to be the problem long before your loop evaporates! Seriously, these things are going to last you a couple of builds, maybe more before you're probably considering upgrades anyway.

My H320 is designed to run 3 years before a drain and refill is required iirc.

How long is 'a couple of builds'? If 2-3 years is all the use you are looking at getting from AIO's then that seems a very poor investment, especially if you can't maintain these due to their closed loop natures.

You can refill them but it will require a bit of effort but definitely doable. The price of a custom loop is still pricy and opting for cheap parts is a complete waist then there's the hassle of putting it together and compatibility. So for some AIO makes more sense before the next improved thing comes out.

Everytime I read these reviews I'm always amazed by the performance of Noctua relative to the AIO water solutions. What a BEAST.
