Doubts about the effectiveness of my Noctua D14 - Page 2

Yeah, but that one runs over $100 USD even on sale. I've used it on an AMD 8120 build before though and it got a nice OC and kept the temps down nicely. NZXT makes some pretty good products, but are typically priced a bit lower than others. They are one of my favorite companies...especially on cases.

Plus the x60 is a dual fan cooler which means it a little louder if you set it to the "Extreme" setting and limits the cases you can use since you will want a dual fan compatible case.

It would be compatible with my case?

It should...as long as your version of the HAF 912 has the space for two fans at the top, but all the ones I've seen do.

I've used this case with it...I think it was that one anyway. If not a very close cousin.

I was wrong. My case supports two external radiator 120 mm fans:

Yeah all the HAF's I've seen can either have one large fan or two smaller fans. If you are crafty I bet you could even use the x60 with the large 200mm fan. As long as you get two screws in it should be fine. Though the included fans are pretty good quality.

delid your cpu, re-apply TIM & Reseat heatsink or... get swiftech h220 @frozencpu for 139usd thumb.gif

P.S with lower TDP processors NH D14 is a bit better

At 1.28v, your temps are not normal.

I have a 3570k and at 1.26v I'm barely in the 60's.

EDIT: I know i7's run hotter, but there's no reason you should be in the 80's.
