A buddy of mine is trying to find out which heatsink is better for his i7 3930k Processor and Thermaltake Level 10 Case.

Either:

Corsair H100 with gentle typhoon 3000RPM Push Pull (If you know any other fans that's better please list it)

or

Noctua NH-D14 SE2011

I just recently bought a NH-D14 for my system and it beautifully cools it. What made my choice was from the reviews i read and it seems to be on par with the H100 or in some test, it would beat it. Overall, the cooler is much better value.

So do you think it's best to use the NH-D14 with these fans Scythe 120mm "Slipstream & Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Maru2 140

I also heard this fan screws up your air flow circulation. If that's true then I think he'll go with the H100

There is no need to replace the Noctua fans as they are already the nice type of fans to use.
