Best heatsink for HAF912 + 2600K?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Yea so I need a heatsink for my 2600k and it has to fit inside me 912.
So I was thinking maybe the Cooler Maser v8:

or the corsair h80 self contained "liquid cooler":

But I'm open to any suggestions really. I have about $150 to spend and I intent to put it to good use. Air or liquid cooling is fine.

I wouldn't bother with the corsair hydro series. Get a Silver Arrow or a Noctua D14 if you are interested in high end cooling. For around 30$ u can get a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+, a solid cooler on a budget.

I've owned an h80 and it was great. The antec 920 is very nice as well. Noctua Nh-d14 or c14 (which I have) are great. I got the c14 because its much shorter which might suit you nicely as well. I added a 3rd fan and it beats a stock d14 handily. The thermalright silver arrow is great. I could be wrong, but I think you could full on watercool your CPU for 150$. The watercoolers will be along shortly to tell you all about it I'm sure. This is definitely your coolest option. The h100 is king of self contained, but is smashed by true water cooling.

So I've seen real watercooling before... but I'm somewhat nervous about it. On top of that I really dont understand the process of watercooling but I'd love to gain some knowledge on that
