Noctua NH-C12P vs Corsair H55 (Asus P8Z77-M Pro)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Little bro is building a similar rig to mine, but with 4 sticks of dominator platinum.

Looking at these 2 coolers
> Noctua NH-C12P (With NB Blacksilent Pro)
>Corsair H55 (With NB Blacksilent Pro)

Wich one of the 2 is cooler/quieter and does not interfer with the 4 high profile dominator platinum sticks (H55 doesnt ofc).
I saw in a youtube review that the Noctua NH-C12P doesnt interfer with the ram if you would turn it 90 degrees but the guy said its bad for overal heatspreading. He didnt actually show the cooler being mounted that way (proving that it would fit).
I allso read on the forum here that there were some issues with H55 Leaking.

Anyone got experience with these coolers/knows anything that would help me make a decision for my bro.
Other fitting suggestions are allways welcome!

Noctua NH-U12S Is better than the NH-C12P and it doesnt interfer with tall RAM modules.
