Overclocking my 3570k

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
hey there!

I am new to OC and I want to make sure I do this correct.

I have an NXZT Phantom FULL with all 7 fans, 3x 200mm 4x 140mm, and the stock cpu cooler
I want to take my 3570k from 3.4 ghz to 4.4, hopefully 4.5, 4.2 minumum

What kind of fan arrangement should I do with my case? the only exhaust fan is the one on the back that came as exhaust, the rest I put it normal and facing in.

What CPU Cooler would you recommend

I have seen these:

212+
212 EVO
Noctua DH-14


What do you guys think I need to get up there? I do have a lot of air circulation with my 7 fans in the case already.

Front and side as intakes. Roof and back as exhaust. The DH-14 is one of the top air coolers out there. Hyper 212 EVO will still get you where you want if money is an issue.

I want to do this eventually too! If you have some extra moneys, I'd look into a H100 or H100i or anything of the like. I've read and heard good reviews about them.

Is that the common set up for the phantom or most cases with fans like that

this is just me, but ive always done this with all my computers, someone is going to say its wrong, but its what works for me...

i have everything intake, front, side and back, and use the top as my exhaust... ive tried every possible configuration, and this is what works best for me...

this is called a positive air pressure case setup. reduces dust build up, and there is always fresh air in the case... thumb.gif

Swiftech just released their h220 cpu cooler. Check out out, I know it's a long video but it's worth a watch.
