Megahalems vs H80..... i5-3570k

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone!

I'm new here.

I have an Intel i5-3570k, and now i want to overclock!

But i don't have a good enough case. My case is this.
45 cm x 18.5 cm x 41.1 cm

Also, my mobo is http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Pro4/ .

About cooling..., i think megahalems or corsair h80.
I beleive that megahalems will fit almost at my case!
About H80, i read at forums, thatis much loud and corsair produced many defective coolers.
About H100, i don't have two fans at my case so ...rejected.

I am waiting your proposals.

Thank you.

They are about the same performance and in price and yes some water coolers will fail, so if you want to play it safe, get the air cooler.

According to the Enermax Page there is 166mm space for a cooler, therefore I'd suggest to get this cooler:

http://www.pc-cooling.de/CPU+Kuehler/AMD+AM2(%25252B)%25252FAM3(%25252B)/Thermalright/100700409/Thermalright+Silver+Arrow+SB-E+SE.html

It's 165mm in height, is better than the Megahalems and comes with two of the arguably best 140mm fans. It's also cheaper.
The H80 is way more expensive and comes with sh**ty fans.

I agree! biggrin.gif

So, i will go to aircolling.

About Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-e-se: Here in Greece i find THERMALRIGHT SILVER ARROW SB-E CPU COOLER (not se-i don't know about it) at 72.53€ and the megahalems at 60€. Here megahalems is more cheap.

I cannot believe that can fit at my case. Where you read about 166mm space for a cooler?

Thanks everyone!

Also, what's your opinion for my mobo? Will it ok for overcloccking i5-3570k?

here:
http://www.enermax.co.uk/produkte/cases/staray.html

the Mobo is fine.

The normal Silver Arrow SBE will not fit since it comes with a huge fan in the middle wich makes the cooler bigger than 166mm. The Special Edition comes with two smaller fans, so only this would work. You could use it with one fan though or get a secon Thermalright TY-141.

you have to consider that you need extra fans for the megahalems too wich will cost money. also the megahalems, while still being very good isnt top notch anymore.

Here are some coolers that will fit and are better than the megahalems, you can chose depending on the price you can get them for:

NZXT Havik 140
Silverstone HE-01
bequiet Dark Rock Pro (2)
Noctua D14
Alpenföhn K2

but you could obviously still get the megahalems, it's not a bad cooler at all.

These coolers are not famous here in Greece (!)

NZXT Havik 140 ---> not sell anymore
Silverstone HE-01 ---> i can't find at any shop, too.
bequiet Dark Rock Pro (2) (BK017) ---> 82€
Noctua D14 ---> 80€
Alpenföhn K2 ---> not sell.
As you understand i don't have enough choices.

Noctua is big and i believe not enough better vs megahalems.
bequiet Dark Rock Pro (2): i don't believe that it will fit to my case. Extreme risk!

i would get the Dark Rock Pro 2, it has some of the best PWM fans you could possibly get and it's better than the Megahalems and it looks absolutely gorgeous too redface.gif

according to manufacturer specs it will fit. But if you dont trust them then just get the Megahalems wink.gif

First of all, thanks for the discussion.

I will manually measure the length of the mobo to the side panel.
I will try to post images, too.

I am afraid that it doesn't fit. I will check it.
Also, it a bit heavy! 1,2 kg!
