Looking for an all black CPU cooler that will take 120mm fans

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Title says it all, I've seen a few. The Megahalems Black and the Xigmatek Dark Knight, I haven't found a site where I can search by color of the metal though. So that's where I figured multiple heads were better than one. Let me know what fits the description, links would be great!

Look at Phantek coolers, they come in a large variety of colors.

i currently have a Xigmatek Dark Knight II, and it is a very good cooler. it is substantially better than a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus. I would suggest a Phanteks PH-TC14PE Black, but that is 140mm fans...

you can stick 120mm fans on them, but i'm not sure why one would want to do that.

Phanteks 14PE
Phanteks 14CS
Phanteks 12DX
Prolimatech Black Megahalems
Prolimatech Black Genesis
Xigmatek Dark Knight
EVGA Superclock
Deep Cool Gamerstorm
bequiet Dark Rock Pro 2
bequiet Dark Rock 2
Spire TME3
Zalman CNPS10X Extreme
ZEROtherm ZT-10D Premium

These are the options you have....

If you want maximum performance then get the Phanteks 14PE
The best deal would probably be the Deep Cool Gamer storm, wich can be had for 33$ at Amazon.com right now, wich is very cheap. The bequiet coolers come with the best stock fans though...

I'm using a Kuhler 620 now. Keeps my plenty cool, it just offers nothing for my VRM heatsinks. At least an air cooler is going to blow air over my VRMs.

A air cooler wont really help. As a matter of fact, your VRMs shouldnt have any heat issues since they seem to have pretty decent cooling.
