Do you have room for 3x120?  They also have 240 and 280 models...  I've always had good luck with the Swiftech coolers https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16835108218  Fully expandable system and very good fans right out of the box.

I ended up purchasing Corsair Hydro H100i V2. Hard to beat the price and 5yr warranty.

You tossed the fans and replaced them with better/quieter ones?

Good choice homie! Im using the same one right now and with the exception of the temperature difference between each cores, it seems to keep my i5-3570k pretty cool at 4.4Ghz. Im planning on tinkering with it how ever to see if I can get it to run a tad cooler by replacing the thermal paste maybe and possibly change the fans and possibly add 2 more for a push pull config. I am currently using the fans that came with the h100 so I can control it through the Corsair Link.

the fans that come with the h100i are ok but are sleeve bearing fans that get louder over time, they are the SP120L PWM, i replaced mine with the ML120 PWM, same static pressure (3.3) but move a little more air at a lower noise level. if you want LED the get the ML120Pro, they are not cheap but well worth the money. the latest version of link fixed most of the bugs that was there and not sure on the v2 but the original would save your fan and LED profiles (mine supports 4 pwm fans) to the unit. think the v2 only supports two fans now though, correct me if im wrong.

Did you noticed better temps by switching to ML120 PWM fans over the stock ones?

I went with a swiftech 320X2 and added Vardar fans.  Its a very hard unit to beat if you ever plan to expand down the road.  The built in pump and reservoir are great to have for the ability to expand.  Not to mention the ability to drain and refill the system.  I am running an i7-7700k at 5.1ghz and never crest 65*c during bench marking/stress testing.  Idles at 28*c.
 
If I had to buy one right now, I would get the new EKWB AIO cooler.  For the simple fact that they have one of the best water blocks on the market for CPU and GPU cooling.

I can't hear the stock fans on Corsair H100i V2 over tower house fan i have running. I been thinking about ordering a few Corsair ML120 or Noctua NF-F12 industrialPPC-2000 PWM

EKWB would attract more customers if they would offer a longer warranty. I can't support a company that doesn't stand behind the products they sell. One year warranty on a $200+ AIO cooler is way too short in my opinion.

Corsair Hydro H100i v2 (5 year warranty)
NZXT Kraken X61 (6 year warranty)
EVGA CLC 280 (5 year warranty)

While in a way I see your point, it's kind of like comparing a Ford Escort to a Mercedes. Two completely different markets.

Both the Swiftech and EKWB units have better/more efficient radiators, as well as better pumps (as they should, since they sell on expandability).

Although a longer warranty would be nice, how long of a warranty is there on custom loop parts?

It's not easy to find EKWB warranty lengths, when i did a search on EKWB FAQ for "warranty", it shows two results, but they don't cover warranty length. Newegg shows warranty length for Corsair, NZXT and swiftech AIO coolers, but nothing for EKWB.
 
When companies have a short warranty (1 year), it makes me question the quality of that product. I start to think "why does this company want to get out from under this product so soon". 
 
EKWB AIO do look nice and probably out perform my Corsair Hydro H100i V2 all day long, but for me a product warranty is very important. I don't want to dish out another $200+, if the unit malfunctions just over year from now.

not sure i understand what you mean by 4 or one slot fans. looks like you are referring to the arctic cooling liquid freezer 240, it has 4 120mm fans for push/pull. the radiator is 38mm thick and the fans are 25mm thick for a total of 88mm.

Ah I meant does it need only one cpu fan plug. I had my answer actually I checked the pdf for installation. Is it a good choice then questionning performance and silence?

Are the stock fans good ? Same question about thermal paste provided.
 
Should fit in my Phanteks enthoo luxe i guess without issue

it will pretty much be on par with all the other ASTEK designed units out there, maybe a little closer to the top with the 4 fans. does not look like they give you much else in the way of rgb or software  like the evga or corsair or NZXT units do.

I have a swiftech 240x prestige and it is keeping my 7900x in check up to 4.8 ghz on the overclock.
 
it is an expandable all in one as well. 
 
it does have one issue though as the pump is mounted to the radiator so it can cause some issues for mounting it.
 
it is quiet as well and has an included fan hub so all it needs is to be plugged into the CPU plug on your board and has a nice looking block with a selectable RBG color scheme and has that same color on the reservoir.

I was looking at Corsair Hydro H115i (280mm) cooler, but i wanted to see what other people would recommend. I know EKWB make really nice AIO coolers but they cost almost $300. 280mm AIO cooler should be able to fit inside Corsair 450D case. I would like the AIO liquid cooler to come with at least a 3-5 year warranty.
 
 


I just put the Cooler Master Pro 280 in my wife's Ryzen 1700X pc and it does a very good job; idles at 29C and max I've seen is 65C in a 27C room. 
 
Installation was easy, the gasket that comes with the radiator and fans; well let's just say it found a home in my round file.
