CPU / Case help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I've been a water cooler for a while but since my bad luck, I've decided to hop the fence back to air cooling

Whats a good option for CPU cooler?
Ive known about TRUE / NH-D14 and a few others but what do you recommend? I have Scythe GTs from my waterloop that will be carrying over

Case:
I know air coolers are a bit bulkier than waterblocks so I was wondering what would fit in an Antec 300 or a case similar in size.

I'm using the Noctua D-14 and love it. My buddy has one in his Antec 300, so I know it will fit.

Are there any troubles with RAM with heatsinks? It looks like it covers the RAM area from pictures.

best air cooling case would be a FT02/RV02. best air cooler is either D14 or silverarrow.

tho i'm more into silent running rig so I would look more towards a HR-02 macho with the tail end pointing up on the FT02 so the exhaust case fan can be used as a pull fan.
