[SOLVED] How to choose a quiet and adequate cooler for i7 4770k Haswell build? - Page 5

Thanks for all the help guys, yeah I will go with the normal version. Being able to control from software should be really handy and on a hot day I can turn it up too! smile.gif I was thinking that the PCGH edition had a good thermal paste, the Chillfactor 3, but apparently it's not even that great.

Chill Factor 3 is good... and it comes with normal HR-02 as well.

A mate who did tests and reviews said
Quote:
I tested and reviewed them myself.

In my first test, Arctic MX3 beat MX2 by quite a margin:

In my second test, Thermalright's CF2 edged ahead of the MX3:

And then a comparison of CF2 vs CF3:

http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/thermalright_hr_02_cpu_cooler_review,10.html

Thermalright CF3 > Arctic MX3 > GC-Extreme > MX2/4 > AS5.

How HR-02 compares with many others at different fan speed and with CoolIT SWiF2-120P and Alpenfohn Föhn 120 Wing Boost fans for reference.

I would only consider the PCGH Edition if they are the same prize where you buy from. And even then it's still a matter of preference. It comes with the double ball bearing fan that a lot of people prefer instead of the Hydro Bearing.
Well the other real difference is that it comes with more Thermal paste.

But the included (choke/gag) "TY-142" (cough/sputter) fan is only a cheap lookalike wannabee of the TY-141/145... It is not PWM and is only 800rpm at 12v.

If what you want is a PC Games Hardware trophy fan because it has their logo on it than by all means buy it. thumb.gif

Well, i know what it is, and i'm not particularly a fan of their cooler editions, but to some it might still be a decent choice depending on the price.

Late reply smile.gif

Very good performance (on a 2700K), very quiet, a ***** to secure the fan. The TS140 [BW] seems to have slightly different fan brackets.

Guys thanks a lot for all the help I will probably go for a HR-02 Macho, I know from someone that it fits and it's not as big and heavy as the Silverarrow!
I'll just go with the normal edition and get an MX4 as the TIM.

You don't need to buy TIM. Thermalright Chill Factor comes with the cooler and is pretty good. I don't even know if it would actually be worse than MX-4. My Arctic graphics card cooler worked better after replacing the original MX-4 with Chill Factor. The least this could prove is that how successful it's applied is more important than the paste itself.

I agree, from all the reviews I read, it's all about application, I am going for the normal version, Ill check if it has paste with it, if not Ill get MX4 or Chill Factor 3!
