Intel Core i7 3770K Air solution help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey! Ive decided to scrap my H100 watercooling solution and switch back to air! Looking for a decent CPU cooler that will be able to handle some high overclocks on this CPU.

Noise isn't really a factor for me here, I'll be wearing headphones the majority of the time it's under heavy loads! Not bought an air cpu cooler for ages and was wondering if you guys could help me out?

Price range will be £100 or $150 USD.

I'm getting rid of the H100 purely on the basis I like buying new things and fiddling with my rig!

Many thanks! thumb.gif

Noctua NH-D14 - Phanteks PH-TC14PE Cant really go qrong from there

add 3x stupidly fast rpm fans with higher cfm for even cooler results.

With mine when running prime I get 56-60deg or less @ 4.5ghz

I'll add Alpenfohn K2 / Deepcool Assassin (same cooler)
Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E (w/ 1x TY-141 & 1x TY-150 700-1200rpm)
Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme (w/ 2x TY-143 700-2500rpm)

SA SB-E at full speed is same noise lever ans SA SB-E Extreme at 1200rpm.. which is quiet.
SA SB-E Extreme at full speed is 7c cooler than H100 at same volume (56dBA vs 55dBA for H100)

scrowl down and jump in to 3:40 for results

SA SB- for as little as £52 + 6 post and Extreme is 5 quid more.
