Yea that's just the AMD version of the NH-L9i but I wasn't trying to spend $50 to cool this i3.

heh, I was in the midst of doing that too. Best one IMHO is the gelid slim silence ip It's actually got heat pipes.

Yea, except the "with good case ventilation" disclaimer after the i3/i5 compatibility in the description has me a little nervous. Maybe I'm going to have to go with the Noctua.

Both GELID and Noctua are 65w TDP.
The "good case ventilation" is really a no-brainer. Cooler needs cool air or it will overheat... simple as.

Might try fan pulling out of cooler instead of pushing in. I have often found these coolers work better with fan pulling. Has to do with how the heated air can be re-circulated back into cooler fan... pushing in the heated exhaust often circles back past fan and gets pulled in, but with fan pulling the air is moved away. All depends on case airflow.

That's a good idea actually as the pulled air would get pushed towards the back 2 fan exhausts in my case.

Also lowers motherboard temps but that usually not an issue anyway. thumb.gif
