Cooling/Cooler Advice LGA1155

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for your expertise and advice, as I'm new to all this. I've got a MSI P67A-GD53 motherboard and I'm looking to get a intel i7 2600k. I'm looking to overclock it at 4.5Ghz, and have 8GB RAM.

I have a CM 640 II Advanced case, with 1 intake fan at the front, 2 on the side panel (to cool the graphics cards), 2 intake from the top and 1 exhaust at rear. Is 1 exhuast fan good enough to get good air flow?

With regard to the CPU cooler, I'm looking at possible the Be Quite! Rock Advance, or one of the Corsair Hydro series. Any recommendations?

If I go for the H70 (for example) with pull & push on the back of the case, would I need another exhaust fan?

Thank in Advance!

technically the H70 is push pull and it mounts to the rear exhaust 120mm fan mount so it IS exhausting out of your case

My CM GT V6 cooled my 2600k just as well as my H70 did w/GT's. Don't believe the hype with super expensive cpu coolers.

if your looking at the H70 then yes everything you need comes included in the kit that you buy.


Now do you have your heart set on the H70 or would u be willing to take the Noctua NH-D14 route?? because on a 2600K the air cooling Noctua WILL OUTPERFORM the H70

No, not got my heart set on the H70, read some good reviews... and I was leaning towards it and wasn't sure how much room I would have.

Noctua NH-D14, looks a beast! Would it fit in my case? and look about the same sort of price

I'd suggest you to get a good air cooler.
