Best Fan for Haswell

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i bought this I7 4770K and it is running at 4.0 Ghz using my old CM V6 GT. THe temps are horrible, i mean theres almost no difference with the stock one...
So im looking for a CPU cooler, the price is not a problem, i just want to get that haswell OC with nice temps. Should i go for an air cooler or Watercooling? (my case suports 2x 140 on the top)

Right now its running idle 54ΒΊC-60ΒΊC (Its summer here)

Heya, a few questions before everyone tries to help you out:

Which case do you have?
Whats the rest of your air-flow looking like?
How comfortable are you with custom loops?

I dont know if it exist in the US, it is called Sentey spider, its not the best but is cheap and has lots of coolers, i have 1x14cm front, 2x14cm bot. 2x14cm top,1x14 rearand 1x22Cm on the side. So the front and side cooler brings air into the case and the rest push air out of it.
I would love to build a custom watercooling loop, my case has predrilled holes, but i know nothing about how to set it up.

Cool, I googled your case. I'd say the best straight-forward option for cooling might be a Corsair H110i exhausting air out the top.

Does your graphics card have a blower-style cooler? If not, I'd also suggest switching your side 220mm fan to an exhaust to dispel the heat from your graphics card directly out of the side, rather than allowing it to blow hot around inside your case and over your cpu or into the potential H110i radiator, and possibly flipping your rear exhaust fan so it is intaking air (which will give more air for the H110i to draw from and help reduce the substantial negative pressure caused by the side and top fans drawing air out of your case)

These are just my suggestions though, other readers may have other ones too.

Hope that helps smile.gif

Its an old crosfire of 6770, The GPU coolers are blowing air out of it so yeah, i think i should change the side fan. Thanks for everything

Yeah I would agree with the assessment that the H100i (I think it's 2x 120mm fans on top not 2x 140mm) would be the best choice.

There is one other thing you could do that is somewhat more risky. Delid the chip. There's plenty of guides that can show you online how to do it. Delidding can give some pretty impressive cooling results (perhaps as much as 20C difference under load).
