I would get the V then if you are going to do some Overclocking if they have nothing else there that hasnt been mentioned in this thread. I considered that one if I went the AIO route.

I did look at the GeminiII when I originally had this case last month, but I worry if it will clear my PCI-e. I have the ASRock Z77E-I and the CPU socket is very close to the PCI-e.

I think it was in Legtom's tests, it showed a bunch of Temps, the CPU overall and the temp of each core. I thought it was interesting that the over Temp of the whole CPU was lower than one of the cores, unless I read it wrong.

But thanks for the validation! Im gonna get this one thumb.gif Did you leave stock fan or replaced with a 25MM? Im figuring leaving stock and buy another 15MM for the side panel that will sit over top

But what about the thermal paste? Do you apply it in between the grooves then?

It came with paste. And really it's more flush than people say. Just apply a couple pea sized dabs like normal.

So which CPU cooler do you see as being the best that would allow to also use the side panel?

It seems like the GeminII would.

The Noctua NH-L12 you'd have to take the 120mm off I think and place it underneath so then you can use the side panel fan.

The NT06-Pro doesn't allow for the side panel fan to work, unless you mount it on the outside.

From what I've gathered now the Geminll seems to be best bang for the buck, as it offers decent temps, allows the use the side panel fan (15MM only) and its relative quiet.

I couldnt confirm on the NH-L12. Yes the top fan must come off, but not sure if you replace the bottom one with it. (i guess you could if the MB would allow) Seems the smaller 92MM on the bottom sits more indent so it may not interfear with ram or some other component on the particular MB its going to be installed on. I THINK you can use the side fan, if its 15MM.

For me its a tossup for the NH-L12 vs GeminII, but I going to try out the GeminII as its priced a heck of a lot cheaper than the NH-l12, and i know for a fact you can still use the side panel fan.

It looks like the GeminII is out of stock right now at Newegg. frown.gif Anyway to see if the GeminII will fit on a motherboard, they have a compatibility list?

But do you thing the nt06 will perform better than the 120v?

Not sure...its seems like a good cooler, but what turned me off was the loss of the side panel fan and it can get loud under load...I dont know, its just me, but I dont think OC'ing is worth it in this small case but I have never been one to OC. You can save your money on the K chip and Z series board and the memory for that matter and put it towards the fastest non K CPU available and perhaps bump your GPU up...but this IS an overclocking forum redface.gif

I thought the 120V would not fit in here and everyone has been saying to go with the 120M, unless I am wrong.
