Recommend me a HSF

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I plan on upgrading from my Mugen to something a little fancier.

I just want something around ~$50, performs equal or better than my current one and that's about it.

I don't need performance more than aesthetics. I just want something that looks good. Something that looks like the Silver Arrow.

might i suggest a mugen but with a new pair of gentle typhoons? biggrin.gif

people need to realize ivybridge produce LESS heat then the comparable sandybridge... you don't need to UPGRADE the HSF for something that produce less heat biggrin.gif

Well I am looking for something that looks similar to the Noctua NH-D14 actually. But any other suggestions? I will be staying with my current rig.

some reviews show that i7 3770k is a bit hotter than i7 2600k
post #8 of 10
3770k = TDP 95 watts(printed on box)
2600k = TDP 95 watts

so... even if you totally discount the 77watts announced TDP for 3770k and go with the number listed on the box which is 95 watts... that still puts it equal to 2600k. not hotter... it's like saying a 95 watt light bulb built this week runs hotter then a 95 watt light bulb that was built last week.... yah it's hotter then "expected" but you were expecting 77 watts. if you were expecting 95 watts... it wouldn't be "too hot"

wow, i did NOT know that biggrin.gif using TIM instead of solder? that's a REALLY bad move in so many different levels.

note to self: do NOT be the 1st kid on the block to buy ivybridge... let the stupid kid buy the paste and wait for solder myself biggrin.gif
