This is my build so far
Case: NZXT Phantom 820
CPU: i7-4930k
MB:Rampage IV black ed
RAM: G.Skill Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2133
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2
Graphics: Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX (going either dual or tri eventually) May actually go with the 980.

My current choice of coolers are the Corsair 105 or the 110.
Both are the same price right now at $109 on Amazon and I believe both will fit in the case just fine. So which would be better suited for me? I've read differing reviews on the performance and the 105 seems to get great reviews all around but is the 110 a more capable cooler?

They're both for all intents and purposes the same. However, unless you're doing heavy overclocking, I'd suggest a high-performance air cooler like the Cooler Master Hyper 212.

I have the Hyper 212 evo in my current system.

I am going to attempt OCing to 5ghz plus with the 4930k so a good water cooler is a must.

Then either one will do. They're both practically the same.

I read some reviews on the two coolers I asked about. It seems the H110 GT is the better choice and it costs about 10 more at around $120 (the lowest I could find).

I ended up going with the Swiftek H240-X. It is a pretty good water cooler and looks awesome also.
And man does it keep my system temps low, from about high teens to high 20's based on what I am doing.
Next is overclocking!
