No reason on the i7. I couldn't decide on the i5 or i7 myself and just about half of everyone I ask says to go with the i5 and the other half says go with the i7.
I do a little of photoshop, blender, and gaming so my CPU and GPU usage varies a little.
The h100i was the cooler I was looking at. From what I've seen it fits pretty nicely in the Corsair 250 ITX case.
