What cooler / how much?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I want to have more coolers on my computer
I have the following specifications

Intel i7 870 (Stock cooler)
MSI P55-GD65
6 GB ram
1 TB HD
Enermax Staray case

There are a few things I want to know

What is the best cooler for my processor?
How do I get a good airflow? (I currently have 1 fan in the front of the case)
With what should I be careful?
How do I place a cooler?
Where do I put the coolers into?(motherboard)
Are smaller coolers useful?
There is room for two 14 CM fans at the side of my case, how can I place those fans?

Case picture:




Hope someone can answer my questions =D
Budget no problem, up to 100 euros

Regards,

Bas

I have the hyper 212+ it is 25USD add a second fan for <10 and you are set. So 35USD I'm not sure what it cost but that case is good as long as you have a good fan on the back. I suggest you buy a 2000 rpm fan for the back of the case. Because my 212 configuration pushed air so fast it circulated hot air in the case because the stock 800rpm fan could not keep up with it.

And how much watt can a cooler take?

40W with a scythe mugen 2?
I also see 160W?

Is that Watt? :O

I don't understand your question. You have 2 140mm fan openings in the side of your case. You just put 2 140mm fans as intake fans there.
Front should be intake, Side 2 should be intake, and rear exhaust
