Need some help: Rasa 750, Corsair h70/80, Noctua d14, TT Frio.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've finally got my build together, less CPU cooling. I'm having a terrible time deciding which way to go. I know there are tons of threads out here like this, but I have some specific desires that have not been addressed. I know you guys are the best, so, make this easier for me, please! I'm ordering this system in around a week.

My build specs:
  • i5-2500k
  • Sapphire 2GB 6950
  • Gigabyte p67-UD4-B3
  • G. Skills 2133 8GB
  • Plextor 128GB SSD
  • Hitachi 7200 RPM SATA III 1.5TB
  • Corsair Obsidian 650d
  • Corsair Professional HX850 modular PSU

The only missing piece is my cooler. The things I'm considering are in the title, but I'm open to other suggestions.

What I want to do with my computer:
  • Be able to run a stable 4.7GHz + OC
  • Move my computer to LANs on a regular basis
  • Enjoy looking at it

I'm afraid the Frio won't keep the CPU cool enough for an OC like that.
I'm afraid the d14 and the Rasa 750 will make it unadvisable to move to LANs.
I've read of mediocre performance from the H70, but I think it is the best looking of the 4.
Putting the weight of the d14 on my motherboard makes me nervous. I know that no one really has problems with that system, but like I said, my tower will likely be moving around a lot.

Please offer your opinions. I'm open to suggestions on the rest of my build, but what's most important to me right now is picking the right cooler. I've put a lot of research into my build, and I'm confident with everything but my CPU cooling.

Thank you.

the rasa kit would work as long as it was all mounted internally.

you have the right case for this...go the h80....the results are solid as well...and it wont add weight to the case like the rasa kit.

normally I would say go rasa but as you will be moving it often I'd go with the H80 or
H100

The only concern with the h80 is I've heard they don't produce low enough temps to run a serious overclock. I'm looking to OC at very least 4.5, hopefully closer to 5GHz.

I'm gonna do some more reading on the H80. I think they look fantastic.

H80 will do 4.5 easy and maybe even 5. H100 would have a better chance...

The H100 is going to be a bit pricey for me, I'd guess. Other than that, I love the idea of the 240 rad, I'd top-mount it.

remember the 2600 doesn't run as hot as 950 and such

How about a Thermalright SilverArrow? I remember seeing the listed weight of that being a lot less than that of the NH-D14.

The silver arrow is even larger than the noctua. I'm not very interested in it.
