Cooling options for 2500k OC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

just wanting to know what your suggestions for cooling are for my following specs.

2500K
GB Z68X UD4 B3
8 GB Gksill Sniper 2 1600mhz Ram
2 x 560ti 1gb
650w Antec Psu
Antec Darkfleet 85 case.

i am leaning towards Noctura D14 as i had nice oc's with my previous E8400 System using Noctura U9B.

I dont want water cooling.

and looking at a Push pull configuration.

thank you in advance.

Noctua D14 if you want to spend on the high end, Cooler Master Hyper 212+ if you want to spend less (~$30). Both are very common and for good reason: they both work well.

You'll have to pick up an extra fan for the Hyper212+ if you want a push pull configuration (~$7). Other than that, it's a great budget cooler and can take the 2500k to 4.8Ghz+
