new cooling wanted

As the title says, I'm looking to replace my current closed loop (H100I) for an air cooler.
I'm not that happy with the h100i performance and then the risk of water leakage does't leave my mind.
So I'm looking for an air cooler capable of running 4.8 oc on my 8350, money is not a problem.

I have searched a lot over the net and seems that the Noctua NH-U14S and Phanteks PH-TC14PE are the best coolers.
now what i would like to know is if any of those will be capable of cooling my CPU at 4.7 oc at least.

thanks!

also i believe that corsair actually covers damage if their product leaks as long as it isnt the users fault
also the chance of leak is supposed to be very small

i know that.
i got this cooler from ebay, it was new but didn't come with a receipt.
so in a case of disaster i wont be able to claim without a receipt!

the plan is going now for air cooling until closed loops get better in performance an price!

I will never use air again after switching to closed loop/water.

The temp in the room I'm gaming in stays nice and cool.

With a large radiator all that heat is just going into the room.

With water/loop you don't get that.

Do some research before making those claims, because many reviewers have been saying the AIO's are just as good as the air coolers...and currently the H100i is at the top of the stack.

actually you should get it more or equal with water systems

the point of water either closed or custom loop is to more effectively remove heat from the CPU

it does that by passing the water thru a rad which has air blowing across/thru it

that air which ends up in your room is what has your CPU's heat

or atleast should if the system is working correctly, being that its water and its moving the degree increase may get a little smaller so you may not notice it as much when close to the pc but it should still be there, otherwise where has the heat gone lol

in a full custom loop there is a chance you would notice a difference if comparing it to the same build on air depending on the components and number of which you have being as they themselves can absorb a few degrees a piece
