THE best air cooler on the market! - Page 4

post #31 of 81
I hear so many votes for the D14 and the SA but nothing for NZXT Havik. Its about 2Degrees off of those 2 coolers and from what i see its $20 cheaper. Ive never seen my CPU go over 60

AFAIK the Silver Arrow has the better fans

But as Chinesethunda said: look into your airflow as a whole. Are you getting anough cool air in?

IIRC that 200 on top sucks air out in its stock config, pushing cool air in would definitely be better. Or you could have your H70 pull fresh air from the outside and have that top 200 pull the hot air out.
I'd try that, it doesn't cost anything so I don't so why not wink.gif

Perhaps get some old fans and make shrouds?

OP said regardless of budget, so if its 2 degrees better then its the one he wants.

I'm very happy with my D14 so you cant go wrong there; however if I were to buy again I might end up going for the Panteks simply because of the improved "Sexiness" (no scientific process involve...thumb.gif )

SA, DH-14, Phanteks PH-TC14PE...Those are the top 3 regardless of budget. The consistency of the site/video reviews speaks the truth. Just Google thumb.gif

Guys....Thermalright Venomous X RT vs Zalman CNPS11X Extreme vs CM Hyper 212+. Which one would you buy to cool an i5 2500k running at 4.7ghz and be quiet at the same time? Thanks thumb.gif

The 212 Plus is probably the cheapest and is pretty quiet. Any of the three should handle 4.7 unless you've got voltages raised way up.
I'd recommend getting the Thermalright Archon rev. A if you feel like spending more and can fit it inside your case. It comes with an awesome and very quiet 150mm fan.

i'd get the Venomous X it's not only the best performer out of those, the build quality is also top notch. One thing to mention though, the Thermalright fan runs 'only' at 1300rpm, so eventhough the heatsink is superior you might get the same/better results with a 212 and the higher rpm fan.
Oh and the 11X has super tight fin spacing and is build for high rpm fans, so its not a good choice for a quiet cooler. If i would get a Zalman cooler i'd get something out of the 10x ones...

At first i wanted the Archon but it won't fit in my Corsair 500r(bumps in the side 200mm fan).
