It all boils down to price and your preference in the end.
About the noise.. read a few reviews of both of them and you'll get the exact decibel rating of the fans :)

Well, the H60 has a rating of 30dB, and 212 Evo is 36dB..
But, I have hardly seen anyone saying that Evo is loud..But everyone complain that H60 fan is loud..
May be it is all about your expectations and perception huh?
A fella buys a liquid cooler,he expects it to be quite..
Hydro series had some problem with the pump though. Corsair has supposedly replaced those units, and the new units are not supposed to have that problem.
But i have not heard anyone verify that.. :-?

A big no for H60.
If you want to go with liquid cooling then you shoudn't look bellow H80.
Otherwise stick to Air cooling.
Coolermaster hyper 212 evo, Noctua NH-U12P SE2 or Noctua D14.
I would suggest you to go for Noctua NH-U12P SE2 if your budget is ~4K.

Why not H60? Please tell me the reasons..

How about this cooler?
HOC 40

Or perhaps this
HOC 20

Seems solid on paper. Can i trust them? Are they reliable?

I would appreciate any input. I have exams next week. And after that i am gonna order the components.

If I were you and was spending 100K for a PC I would have never bought an LGA 1155 system to begin with. I would have bought a LGA 2011 system any day.My two cents.
Or I would have settled for a i5 2600K/2700K/3570K and an Asus Maximus Gene V (it will blow any Motherboard out of the blue waters!!!) i5s are more than sane for gaming. And would have used the saved money for a Better Faster GPU and a PCIe SSD.

But spending LGA 2011 kind of money on a LGA 1155 is a bit confusing, hence I suggest .....

Processor - Intel Core i7 3820 - Rs 19000

Motherboard - ASRock X79 Extreme 6 64GB DDR3 Intel Motherboard - Rs 19635
eVGA X79 SLI 32GB DDR3 Intel Motherboard (132-SE-E775-KR) - Rs 18955
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 - Rs 18500

I have considered that. But i saw no real benefit for ME in going that route.

Folks, I need input on the SVG HOC coolers..
No one in the forum know anything about them?

There is a review on HOC coolers in the reviews section. See it.

I came to know about it in TDF in the first place.
But as it is still a new company, I would like to have as much input on it as possible, before pulling the trigger.
What would you do if you were in my position?

^^ 1. TDF new? meh!
2. It is 94th post. Still want more? Go to market. See & compare the products yourself. ;)

If you don't know or care to know about the quality of suggested component, I will suggest you to stop suggesting random cr@p components and thus stop confusing OP.

I think you are interested in liquid cooling.

My totally personal opinion:
If I were you, I would have go with H80.

Thank you. As i am inexperienced, it helps to know what you guys think :)

And yes of course i am interested in liquid cooling. Big air coolers do not appeal to me :wink:

And sorry to bother you guys by these many posts..
The idea of this build was small at first and has now come a long way. I am grateful for all your help. I am sorry if the thread has become too long..

Did you read the complete post,I mean my post.It seems you just picked up some lines to facilitate what you do best.Define Crap Components in this case. Be a bit more informative and responsible when you comment like that. Dont just loose talk. I see that you come to conclusions very fast and pass on the judgements about how much a person knows etc etc,pretty interesting,I would say.It happens to people who think they know it all. Anyways do define CRAP Components. PLEASE STOP SENDING PMs rather lets have a conversation on crap components here. Enlighten me.

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you want to,that is the sole purpose of a forum.We love to be bothered.The water cooler will benefit you over a fan based cooler by making a lot less noise and will keep the temps a bit lower ,around 2C when compared to a equally good air cooler in full flow. ( The only problem that you should be worried about a water cooler, is air bubbles and a proper installation) Thats the best I have achieved with a Corsair H100. H80 at Rs 6500 is a costly cooling solution no doubt but if you are overclocking and tweaking voltages then its worth the price otherwise you will be better off with an aircooler.

Here is the rig i am going to order on Monday or Tuesday -

Intel 3.4 GHz FCLGA1155 Core i5 3570K Processor | Processor | Flipkart.com

ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Motherboard | Motherboard | Flipkart.com

HOC 20

G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL) | Ram | Flipkart.com

Seasonic X Series - 80 Plus Gold SS-760KM 760 Watts PSU | Psu | Flipkart.com

Buy NZXT in India | NZXT Phantom Crafted Series Cabinet

Crucial m4 SSD | 256GB SSD | SSD Drive | Best SSD

AX750 is out of stock, so i have to go with Seasonic.
RAM is a single 8 GB stick, because i am going to add another 8 GB soon.
I may tone down the 256 GB SSD to 128 GB ( probably not )
I want to get a Phantom in Orange and Black. Will check if it is available.
Need a UPS. Suggestions?

So what do you guys think?
( I know i spent a LOT of time thinking and thinking :p But it has been FUN :-D )
