to sum it up: they use a 2500k (3.0 GHz/1.0V) with the Phanteks completely fanless at ~72°C, but that's after running prime for an hour or so...
(the Nofan was 7°C better, the HR-02 Macho ~8°C worse, everything completely fanless too obviously).

so with HT off, and similar voltage, or mabe even slightly higher, you should be more than fine with the fanless Phanteks, considering you most likely wont have 100% load for a longer period of time, if at all....
If not, you still have the option to use a very slow spinning inaudible fan....

So many helpfull responses here, thanks all!

I think the phantek cooler is the way to go. I am convinced now.

I wouldn't mind turning on a fan at lowest setting, and I doubt it will make much difference, but it might create a bit of dust. Still Summer is coming so I will have to turn on some fans after all. smile.gif


I do not do anything demanding other than playing cs:go, so the cpu wouldn't get maxed out. A weaker system or a laptop would be better, but I already have the comp and if I need performance I can just turn on the fans and bump up the clocks.

If I stay below 80c at all times I am good.
