Recommended i7-2600K cooler? - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Rule number one, never assum people know what you are talking about... always make it where almost anyone can understand what you are telling them. For example... the best way to translate TIM , Just say freaking Thermal Paste... jeez even I didn't know what that meant when I first seen it and been using the aftermarket stuff for years. To be completely honest I didn't see "TIM" being used till I started going on forums again.

This coming from the person who has the watercooled system and being completely biased against the Corsair Hydro series which is actually pretty good. I had the Noctua 14D or w/e and it was alright... BUT what I didn't like was that fact how it COMPLETELY dominates your motherboard. Honestly it is huge and kinda tacky... doesn't give you that clean look as when you use one of the Hydro Corsair things or anyone of them made in that way. Noctua also restricts you to using low profile memory ... if you want that thing go for it, but I'm not gonna let that thing control my build -_-

This is somewhat going to depend on your chip. Some take more volts, some take less to reach the same speed (more volts = more heat). Just go slowly and always watch your temps.

One of my 2600k rigs is currently using 212+. Max load temps @ 4.5ghz is 77c (IBT test - maximum). I'm not saying you're going to have the same temps, but just giving you the idea. It idles at 29c(lowest) if that matters.

I somewhat agree with you that's why I had to go to real watercooling.

My apologies for double posting.....

TIM = thermal interface material

Thanks to all for the replies. I think I'll give the 212+ a try for while and see how I do around 4.5. Always room for an upgrade in the future, if needed.
