Can't Decide

I cant decide between the Noctua NH-D14, thermalright silver arrow sb-e extreme, or the h100i. i have a fractal design midi r2 case, i5-4670k cpu, and a asus maximus vi hero motherboard. no gpu at the moment. what would be the best cooler if i wanted to overclock?

another question. if i wanted to change the fans what kind of fans do i have to buy and is it hard to mount them? i want it to be black and or red to match my color scheme. any suggestions? i might add a 3rd fan for the aircoolers if space permits and a pushpull if i go watercooling

You're going to want to look for Fans with high static pressure, Corsair's SP series fans are good Radiator fans and they are black and red.

If you're going to for Air get the Nh-d14 if you don't mind the colors, it's the best air cooler on the market to date. But if you go with the d14, than there is no point of replacing the stock fans because they are amazing and quiet already.
