i7k 2600 cooler

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

just built my new rig (spec in sign); don't plan to keep the stock cooler for long, but seems like I have a problem: all memory slots are occupied and many retailers told me that it may be difficult to find an aftermarket cooler that will fit properly.
I may even consider Corsair Hydro solutions, but I really like all those case fans and, more importantly, I don't plan an extreme overclock.
Any advice will be welcome, thanks

Go for a Corsair H50.

The xiggy dark knight or the hyper 212 in a push/ pull set up will give you more fans and good cooling for a mild overclock.

However, the cosair H70/ H80 will give you less clutter on the motherboard and you can still have a 2 fan mount on the rad.

will that thing fit considering all four memory slots are occupied?

Go with the H50 if you want to save money. If you have money to burn, go for the H80. My H50 keeps temps under 60C (full load) when at stock speeds. Maxes out at 68C at 4.2 and 70C at 4.4 (though I can't get it stable @4.4)

Thermalright Archon. It's a tall air cooler but if it fits in your case it's designed to clear all memory slots and performs very well and most importantly, it's quiet.

I was thinking to not exceed 4.5, given you have a similar setup your advice really help, thanks

I have a Corsair 600T, it should fit.
edit: I just found this, with my same case: http://www.fudzilla.com/reviews/item...viewed?start=3

Between H80 and this Archon, which one offers best cooling performances?
