[Canucks] Behemoth CPU Cooler named “Assassin” - Page 6

post #51 of 84
The really important aspect that hasn't been touched on yet is how good is the mounting system this has is. I do understand why people worry about putting a huge brick of a cooler in their case, but once you see the mounting system of the D14 in action you realise that it is well designed and plenty strong enough to avoid damage. The SA mount on the other hand is of course strong enough but it is a real pain to fit the thing. Check some installing videos on youtube if you're not sure.

So I'd expect this to perform well but wouldn't touch it until I knew more about the mounting system they have employed.

Because of this, I've had smaller coolers than this that ended up bending my motherboard because of the weight of them, don't assume you are the majority dude.

Don't refer to me as buddy.

Also take a look at the sig please......holy crap it's a mainstream motherboard!

Also yes you may get warping, but that is a natural defect of heat and resin. What to do, heat the board up bolt down and warping is almost gone.

Also before you put your foot in your mouth any deeper don't assume anything about me, I don't assume I am the majority. It's that majority of motherboards are made of the same material.

Wow, someone got some crap in his cornflakes this morning...

I DID take a look at your sig so how the hell do you consider that a "mainstream" motherboard, when it's one of Gigabyte's best and most expensive motherboards for 700 series? "Mainstream" were the 740/770/780G motherboards, all of which vary in build quality, again you're assuming they're all the same when they're not (I got a 780G mobo in my other rig, where I had to take off the tower cooler to stop the motherboard from bending further).

And "buddy" was a figure of speech, no need to get your panties in a twist over it... I have no interest/intentions in becoming friends with you.

Put my foot in my mouth? Do you not see the irony in your statement, considering you just called a Crossfire motherboard "mainstream"?

No the 790FX is the top end of the AMD 7** chipset. Now that the 89O is out then the soon to be 990 I consider it even more in the upper mainstream price bracket.
I consider the 790X High mainstream because of pricing.

I never said all motherboards are the same, never insinuated it. Now you are putting words in my mouth that where never there, also yes essentially motherboards are made of the same materials.
If some one is buying very cheap or low build quality mobo to overclock on or put this cooler on then I think that they may need to re asses what it is they are trying to achieve.

How high end is it when you can't purchase it ? (EDIT: I found one place here in Australia) Unless you can buy one easily?

the 740/770/780G are more like budget chipset, given that I have seen some really nice ones ones.

Lowest to highest (pricing)

Budget
Microstar K9A2 NEO-F AMD 770 DDR2-$64.96
Foxconn A78AX-K AMD 770 ATX-$65.73
ASRock A770DE+ AMD 770 ATX-$80.00
Asustek M4A78 socket AM2+ AMD 770-$89.00

Mainstream
Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3-$105.00
Gigabyte GA-880G-UD3H-$109.00 (CrossfireX)
Gigabyte GA-880GMA-USB3-$125.00


Upper mainstream
Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 -$178.54 (overpriced, but it's one of the only places that had it)
Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 HERE


Here's some cheaper (in general) boards that have CrossfireX
ASRock 870 Extreme3 Motherboard-$99.00
Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 Motherboard-$119.00

High end
ASRock 890FX Deluxe4-$179.00
Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5-$199.00
ASRock 890FX Deluxe5-$205.00
ASUS Crosshair IV Formula-$285.00
ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme-$375.00





Also there is many members here and I know one in person and you aren't him, so to use that figure of speech is pushing the margins a bit.
Also do you really think that by saying "I have no interest/intentions in becoming friends with you." is going to break my heart?

I'm hoping this cooler will be tall enough to clear an E760 Classified northbridge heatsink as I want a better air cooler that is able to exhaust through the back and not the top. As the best coolers continue to require a South-North setup...

Noctua NH-D14
Thermalright Archon
Thermalright CoGage Arrow
Thermalright Silver Arrow


I think I need a 50mm clearance from the socket up.

Like I said before, you're wrong. Regardless of what's top end now, your motherboard is by no means "mainstream". I ran a very similar motherboard to yours on one of my rigs and had the Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 (if I remember correctly). As I stated before, there is a world of difference between it and my current 780G Sapphire motherboard. A friend of mine has my Gigabyte motherboard running now with a massive Noctua cooler on it and has been running it for ages (don't remember the name of it), even though when I tried to mount the same cooler on my current mobo (780G) it put a heavy strain on it, enough for it to obviously bend it over time (while the Gigabyte one had no problems/strain running it). Gigabyte's motherboards (especially their high end ones like yours/my old one) are much better built than most actual mainstream motherboards, the one you have does not in any way compare with any "mainstream" motherboards for neither features, price nor build quality.

As for your bottom comment, like I said before I have no intentions in doing anything like that, regardless if you were stating your comment in a sarcastic manner or not. I'm here to read about new hardware as I'm planning a new build by end of this year/beginning of next, that's it. After that's done, I won't care about what's new/latest and greatest or think of upgrading for a long time.

They perform the same.

I'd get the silver arrow for the easy mounting and nice fans, and the 20 dollars cheaper price..

If a motherboard is poorly made (cheap parts, flimsy and/or too flexible), then you're expecting too much from it to support high end coolers. There's always trial and error, as some have done.

If it doesn't work, it doesn't work, as I've said before, you expected too much from it. poke.gif

That's tucked neatly out of site in the bottom of my TJ 07/ which has a shelf built to house my 480 rad.

No clutter of metal and fans in plain sight brotha.
