best cpu cooler? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
I've had my NH-D14 for about three days and it is well worth the money. You have to remember you're getting two quality fans with it. They are whisper quiet too. I have been getting great number on my new 2600k I put in with it. I got it for 80 bucks since it was on sale on newegg about a week ago.

The Silver Arrow and NH-D14 are essentially equal performance wise. Whichever one you can find cheaper is the one you want.

It's comparable to the D14, but not better.



It's also about 10 dBA louder.

If you don't mind all the noise then you can save a few bucks. But that's also running at nearly 2x the rpm of the D14. The D14 was tested at 1300 rpm. How much better would the D14 cool if it throttled to 2200 rpm like the CM v6 has to spin to be comparable?

I have read a lot of success with the v6. Most of them don't even mentioned the v6 being loud. I also feel like the case plays a big role regardless of any component noise letting it out. I have seen the I7 2600k push up to 4.5 like a piece of pie. A good thermal compound always to be kept in mind.

The v6 also is only going for $50 and that's a steal.
