But yea as said. I think my temps with the H70 are to high. No idea why. Mounted properly and using MX-2 TIM.

Ambient temps are around 25°C
Well, what you should do is Lap the Copper plate to get that scratch out, if it's not DEEP. Not really sure how a H70 Would do in my system, But a Hyper TX3 For my Overclocked Core 2 Duo's max temp in a VERY Cramped case (120MM Rear, PSU On top, And This decently Sized CPU Cooler almost touches eachother, LOL.) My max temp Is 61C On Both Cores, so That really isn't bad. If I get a micro-ATX Board and shove this build back into my NZXT Vulcan, temps should dramatically Decrease, Which would allow me to get higher than 3.14Ghz.

Yea the NH-D14 will fit in the 1200, It will also clear your ram. You may have to clip a fan up a few notches at worst.

A side fan will also fit, but you most likely will have to cut a corner off the fan. Piece of cake, I did.

Also have you removed the mesh on the window? Just doing that can make it look alot bigger and better. Like my avatar.

So its me again. Just wanted to ask around a last time about a cooler and then decide on one.

My goal would be 24/7 4ghz overclock if possible. So far I know my 1090t runs stable 4ghz at 1.40v.
I wouldn't go any higher.
My current ambient room temps are 25°C. I guess it will stay like that during summer. It might go up to 30°C tho.
Well I want a cooler that can keep my 1090t below 55°C even with those ambient temps.
Which case I got you can take from my sig. The Antec 1200.

My question now is: Will be the Prolimatech Super Mega with 2 TY-140 be enough for that job or do I have to go with the Noctua NH-D14 ?
If the nactua is only choice between those two, would it be wise to upgrade the fans to one TY-140 along with a Gentle Typhoon AP-15 or are the stock fans on the NH-D14 good enough ?
Actually. Will changing the fans to above named give any improvement ? As long they wouldn't decrease the performance I would switch them. At least the front one. Cos I don't like the look of the noctua fans that much.
