What should I use to cool my new i7 3820? - Page 2

nvm... the Antec does has a fan.... i'm still hoping it would be quieter than the $40 cheaper EVO. Would that be correct?

I know that may be a tough question unless you've actually had both so... lemme know if anyone can make an educated guess on that. your educated guess would be worth more than mine at this point.

good tower and after market fans like Noctua fans are great looks odd but cools great and low yo no noise,

Noctua are behemoths but are really some of the best air coolers, but they come at the cost of size. If you need budget.... you could take a look at CoolMaster V6 or V8 depending on configuration you prefer... Push/pull vs. Rifle Style.

If you want to use Water though H80 is what I would use min. or Antec Kuhler. I also vouch for Noctua fans. I tried some of the packed CM "silent" case fans and they still produced too much noticeable noise (I do voice acting so I need minimal noise) I switched it some NF-P12-1300 from Noctua and they are great. PC is mostly silent to point I can hear my GPUs coil whine.


Case does matter too as said above! Noise difference between a HAF 912 and Corsair Carbide 300R for example is night and day. Carbide keeps everything in much more then the 912.

H80i is a good cooler, got one myself but I would recommend using your own fans as the standard ones are noisy. I'll be swapping mine out when I can be bothered tongue.gif

I mounted the PSU ANTEC with the intake on the bottom of the case (so sucking air up from the bottom) and not sure I can say I have heard it even run yet ... but I only have 1 video card (7950).

On my HAF XB I hear wind noise - not fans ...
