Is the D14 practical for a HAF 912?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I know that the HAF 912 has enough room for the D14, I also know that the D14 blows off a lot of heat. I'm making my first build and plan on putting an aftermarket air cooler on the CPU a few weeks after the initial purchase. I've read and seen reviews saying that the D14 blows off a lot of heat. I've also seen a lot of threads reporting that they are getting very high idle temps with the D14. With all of that considered along with how small the HAF 912 is, will the case allow for proper airflow throughout the case with the D14?

If doesn't work out are there any recommendations for other air cooling solutions?

That depends on how you setup the airflow for your case. If the D14 is blowing off a lot of heat that's a good thing. It means it is doing its job. If you get the HAF 912 exhausting that hot air will be better with the top side fan since heat rises. Just buy a couple of good fans for rear/top exhaust and you'll be off to a good start.

I wanted this cooler, but looked at prices...90$ in Canada, so I picked up a silver arrow. Yes it throws a ton of heat into your room, I am 12 feet from a window AC unit and after 2 hours of BFBC2 the room is at least 2C warmer.

If you have good fan setup, it will work perfectly.

Would a Hyper 212+ be sufficient though? I'm looking to hit 4500 mhz with a 2500k.

With two 120mm fans at least 1500RPM you will be fine with the cooler.

uhmmm now I dont get it, comparing one of the best Air heatsinks vs a budget one?

Yes it will get a 2500k at 4.5 Ghz with the 212+ its not something out of this world to achieve, but the thing is how COOL do you want your processor to be at that clock.

Cooler temps = longer life

Noctua is better obviously cooling wise, you get what you pay for.

hyper 212+ is more than enough for 4.5 ghz. at 4.6, i am getting mid 60C on p95 on a very hot room. if you are on a tight budget, hyper 212+ should suffice and use your money on other components. you can always upgrade to the noctua/silver arrow in the future.
