Good CPU Cooler for my setup. - Page 2

post #11 of 14
While the NH-D14 is still one of the best it is now a degree or two behind the best. Playing with Silver Arrow SB-E, PH-TC14PE and NH-D14; all with 130cfm fans; the best is PH-TC14PE by a whisker.

The fact that NH-D14 is still one of the best after all these years shows just how far ahead of the curve it was in the beginning. thumb.gif

My CaseLabs is stuffed with Noctua fans because they are the best made pieces of plastic I've ever seen or held. Absolute silence and reliability, totally worth the weird colour scheme. I still use Gentle Typhoons on my radiators though... Didn't want to have to buy 6 new NF-F12's when I had the AP-15s is all.

Noctua do make great fans... although the Thermalright TY-14x series of fans are what I'm using most at the moment.

I find the new Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 an interesting design; 17 blades, 1000rpm, PWM, 15mm thick with good airflow against resistance and quiet too.

Ok so update: I bought the CM V6GT and installed. I had to take out my 230mm side panel fan to fit it, but i think im gonna put it on the outside and case it out so no little ones get their fingers chopped off ;p. Anyways OC'd @4ghz it is around 36C idle, and 85% load(playing BF3) is 56-57C. Does this sound right, will it get better after the break in period of thermal paste? Currently I have 1 120mm front Intake fan and a 120mm exhaust fan. Should I make the side panel Intake or exhaust? Also i wanna try to maybe OC to 4.5ghz. Is there anyone who can guide me on doing that? As of right now i just changed the Multiplier to 40 in BIOS. I know i will have to change voltage and maybe some other things but im not sure. Thanks in Advance
