Noctua NH-D14 vs. Corsair H100 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Let’s get back to the cooler discussion. wink.gif

As it was mentioned before, the two coolers are similar, performance wise. Apart from budget, it comes down to noise, aesthetics, placement and installation

Both coolers can run in quiet mode, so you can have them as loud or quiet as you wish, depending on the configuration you choose.

Placement: No choice with the air cooler. With the H100, you have a ton of options with your case.

Aesthetics: You have a large chunk of metal hanging off your mobo with the air cooler, the H100 can be as discrete as you want it to be.

Budget: your call.

Installation: The H100 pump head installation is a lot easier than the H50. With both coolers, you will need to attach a backplate.

I realise you are gun-shy regarding the Corsair systems but at least you an tweak them with shrouds, better fans and Push/pull configurations with relative ease.

I’ve had both traditional air coolers and the Corsair series, I can safely put my hand on my heart and say, I would not go back to air. smile.gif

That’s not hate BTW, that’s just my opinion.

Let us know what you decide thumb.gif

you could go with a d14 or silver arrow. theres others out there like the nzxt havik which does surprisingly well.for 60 bucks, it cools within a few degrees of the d14. but if you want safe and reliable. go with a d14 or silver arrow. just make sure you use the right amount of TIM. maybe thats why your h50 wasnt doing well enough. then again the older cpus give out more heat

Fixed if you use all the TIM that comes on the H50 it is way too much....remove it ball it up split it in half and that's about the right amount.
