CPU cooler for 3770k

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So i have my 3770k sitting next to me waiting to be put together on my new rig. Still deciding on Mobo and what memory to do. But wondering what you guys suggest for a CPU cooler. On my current 2600k build i have a Zalman CNPS9900ALED [LINK] and it has worked out well. I mostly game now on my machine, Use to overclock but less and less time. I might get back into benching and OC but for right now will mostly be used for gaming. Is there anything better out there or anything else i should look at. Havent looked in awhile so just seeing if anything better has come along.

I really dont want a HUGE cooler as i wont be OC like crazy. If nothing is really better, i will just buy another Zalman.

I have read good reviews about the new Cooler Master TPC 812 that uses a vertical vapor chamber: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103176

Here are the temps compared to other coolers. It's almost on par with the H80 with less noise: http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2654&page=5

If around the web benchmarks keep coming in with those results, I would say it would do better than the Noctua if word gets out.

Edit: Just found a couple more sites that say the same thing.

By those results, the Noctua is considerably quieter, though.

I've always used Zalman's in the past, but with my Ivy build, i opted for the Corsair H100 water cooling kit. I have no experience with water cooling but this was quite simple and very good performing.
