Air Coolers For Corsair 250D

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, unfortunately it seems the NH-U12S height is 158mm and the 250D has a clearance of 140mm. Are AIO water coolers such as the Corsair H100i or Swiftech H220 really my only option when it comes to a quality cooling solution? I was hoping to run something somewhat quiet and it seems the new fad of AIO water cooling does not take this aspect of cooling into consideration. Now, I'm not opposed to buying the H220 or anything but from what I've read these things are simply not worth it. However, if the 250D limits my options one of these AIO solutions may be my best choice. Anyone with any experience with a MicroATX build in a 250D care to chime in?

eh? 140mm is plenty. It's only 94 or 95mm with optical drive though.

hey !

I have the same problem ...

I use H100i and test H90 but pump noise is too loud for me ...

I want back to aircooler but clearance is too short ...

Best aircooler is :

- Be quiet Shadow Rock Top Flow
- Noctua NH-C14

I test NH-U9B but my temp are too hot ( 72° with a i4670k, no overclock)

hard ...
