You mean Corsair H100i. Also I thought the Xigmatek Darknight was a pretty good air cooler
Thanks for the fix :)
I was looking at Cooler master products and I suppose my brain just told me to write that instead lol.
Happens to the best of us :D
Custom water-cooling loop.
Oh my bad, I see what you're asking now ( I think? ) Basically you were asking what was the best cpu cooler out there not if water was better than air or vise versa. Sadly I can't help you with that but my favorite is http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/phanteks-cpu-cooler-phtc14pebl for air.

For water cooling
Best is the swiftech h220
Only better for customizing.
The best closed loop non custimizing is the Corsair H110 and the NZXT Kraken x60. But a custome water cool set-up generally is better since you can add more radiators and cool just not the cpu but also GPU and chipsets. Only drawback is the cost really and the usual maintenance that goes with it.
So if ya wan't something you can add on to get the swifttech h220.
If you want something simple and just for the CPU get the Corsair h110 or NZXT Kreaken x60.
? Not to be offensive or anything here but for this kind of question a simple google search would suffice and answer your question much faster. Water is better than air but generally costs more.
