As I said, problem solved!

I never really understood why some people complain about the push pin design. Perhaps they got a heatsink with a plastic mechanism that is faulty ?

I'm using a AC Freezer 7 Pro that has the very same design and never had a problem. I have also set up other systems with stock coolers and custom coolers and never had a problem. You just have to make sure it clicks. And then make sure that the click meant that it actually worked. Just pull up each side with just a tiny bit amount of force just to check it went in and is secured.

For the enthusiasts with heavier heatsinks, those normally come with a backplate, in which case you should also have a decent case with a hole in the motherboard tray that makes it easy to install the backplate.

In my opinion this is only a problem for very few people.

This is exactly what I was thinking. There's no valid reason to stay on air cooling with these chips.

I don't want to use water cooling. That's valid enough for me.

Noctua will release a new cooler in Q4. Hopefully this is a D15 that will fit on LGA 2011 without problems.
I didn't think it was possible to create an even uglier cooler but they have succeeded.

I agree, not everyone who spends that much cash on a CPU has the cash to go water cooling...

Same with High end GPU's...

And if the improvement from WC in terms of OCing is only 100-200Mhz?

Completely and utterly wrong, many non-enthusiasts would buy a 6 core SB-e on 2011 and OC it simply due to the fact it has a 2 core advantage to SB.
Case in point, I compile, transcode, encode, compress and decompress, SB-e would be more suited to someone like me than most of OCN, as what they'd do is limited by the GPU but what I do is limited by the CPU and even RAM bandwidth sometimes.

People that can afford to rock an X79 machine can also afford to get the proper cooling for it and replace whatever bulky air coolers they were using.

You can't be willing to spend $600-$1000 on a CPU and $250+ on a motherboard and then cry poor to us that you can't use your Noctua anymore.

More and more people are going water these days anyway what with things like Rasa kits and closed loop kits.
As someone who had WCing, the cost is one of the smallest factors involved, WC is a real pain to work with in just about every way.

And I'm pretty sure that someone who maxes their CPU quite a bit would see a much greater improvement from a new CPU than a new cooler, I see no need for CPU WC unless I get a good 500Mhz or higher OC out of it, the cost of the kit + the cost of setting it all up and maintaining it isn't worth the tiny amount of Mhz it lets you squeeze out of your chip these days.

That said, any RAM without the massive useless heatsink will probably fit fine with a D14.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Why? They cost a lot, yes. But maybe that AU$189 RASA RX240 kit (Plus fans to ensure my RAM and VRMs get decent cooling) won't give me anywhere near the value for money of that $600 CPU...Maybe, I'd be better off buying another 8GB of RAM and a NH-D14! Nah, makes too much sense. CHIPS COST A LOT SO YOU MUST HAZ GTX 580 QUAD SLI AND WC AND LN2 AND 1200W PSU CUZ THATS KOOL TO. Right?

QFT.

I'd see a genuinely massive improvement in nearly everything I do from getting that $600 hexacore SB, as well as the $316 RAM I want (32GB of it, for a RAMDrive to mount certain programs on), it'd easily be worth it to me especially as I could keep it for a few years, however the WC would make working in the machine a real PITA (I know, i have a RASA RS240), cost a lot more for what will probably turn out to be ~200Mhz and limit my choice of cases as having an external rad causes dust to get in it too much for me to like it.

Right now I'd love to have a Hexacore (Either Thuban, a i7 970 or one of these chips) in my rig, along with my 9800GTX+ PhysX and GTX 470 main card, if I got 16GB of RAM then I'd be more than happy with that rig for a while, only really would need to upgrade the graphics card.

Then why not get a cheaper CPU? It's kinda pointless to waste 1k on a CPU fi you can't give it proper cooling.

Like I said before, though, the Corsair H100 will do the job without a problem.
