Good cooler that fits my build?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Good morning

I am looking for a good air cooler that would fit my Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3 with the Corsair Vengeance ram.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks

It all depends on what you plan on doing in the future...

Will you overclock?
What type of cpu do you have?
What is your current budget for an air cooler?

I would go with a noctua NH-U12P:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835608014

It has very good clearance for tall ram heatsinks and does a great job of cooling almost anything you put it on. The DH14 is a bit overkill if you ask me and it is HUGE!

or

Thermalright Venomous X - RT 120mm CPU Cooler

or

for a budget cooler I would get a Coolmaster Hyper 212 EVO

Thanks for your reply.

I am planning on overclocking. I got the 2600k.
And i also don't have much of a budget.

get a water cooler no issues with any ram, since you don't have a budget get the h80 or antec 920

I don't really want a water cooler. It uses more power and you have the risk of a water leak.

Thanks for your reply though.

I'm in a similar situation as you. Here is what I'm planning on using. I'm going to use the ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-R. Is it big... yes.. BUT I feel that it's the best option besides water cooling.. Thought I'd share this option. Good Luck
