Socket 2011 Cooler advice

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have recently bought a ASUS P9X79 Deluxe MB and a i7 3930k and for the RAM I am taking the Vengance RAM out of my old machine.

Currently I am really struggling to find a 'perfomance' cooler that will fit with the RAM, has anyone got suggestions for coolers or work arounds?

Air cooling prefered.

Thanks in advance

get one of those all in one water coolers like the H100 or Antec Khuler 920, there really is not difference from top air cooling, just can handle a bit more heat capacity. That is if you want to OC 4.8ghz+

BTW most coolers will fit just fine, just don't get memory with very tall heatsinks, vegance might be ok. I think i remember on your board the memory goes in the second slot and then fourth, not first and 3rd on either side.

I havent got the fan slots required to mount a H100, would a H80 still be reasonable?

Unfortunately the vengance i have is the tall stuff (see link) and all the RAM slots will be filled.

I am not looking to OC straight away, but will do at somepoint.

Thanks for the help

If you are not going to OC than a H80 would work just fine

What sort of temps do you think i will get with stock clock and a H80?

Check out this review...

Also, you could always add another fan to the radiator to do a push/pull setup which would help reduce temps. I did this with the H50 in my last build and mounted the extra fan on the outside of my case to save space inside.

This review shows some temps as well:

Essentially you would have room for some OC'ing if you decide to do so in the future

+1 for h80 it will silently keep you cool. later you can add a push/pull set up with yate loon fans (they have high static pressure which radiators really like) and get even more performance out of it. and they are dirty cheap.

edit:
the h80 comes with two fans to begin with but aftermarket fans will perform better thumb.gif

As a word of caution for filling up all the RAM slots. Make sure your RAM works with 8 DIMMs an your motherboard either through verification of someone who has already done it or through checking the QVL for the motherboard. Apparently there have been quite a few compatibility issues with trying to fill all the RAM slots.
