Shall I upgrade from my XIGMATEK Thor's Hammer? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
wouldnt say that thor's hammer is close to D14
in this review for example
http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/175...er/index6.html
is old noctua NH-U12P beter by 2C...D14 is better by another 3-4C from NH-U12P...
so thats ~ 6C better as hammer.

but anyway as was posted before max is around 62C

maybe for little comparison, I have 30C ambient...
x6 1055@3965 with 1.4v...D14 with 2x14cm fans running on 800RPM-> 55C while constant 80% CPU load

If you purchase one of the liquid cooled corsairs or antecs and have 2 good fans on push pull-you will be cooler than you are-i have no douts. If your on a budget, i think the antec 620 with two gentle typhoons, or a bit cheaper the ones i have the kaze 110cfms or the kaze 88cfms will do you fine. Plus you will get better air flow through your case. There for-help cool everything.
