Looking for 1150 cooler

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I need a CPU cooler for i5-4670K and I am going to OC this of course but not crazy high so my main requirement are:

* Good cooling
* Must be silent (My case is always opened)
* Budget $75

Some choices I found are: Corsair Hydro Series H80i, Noctua Ultra Silent NH-U9B SE2, Noctua NH-D14

But I would love to hear your advices....Thanks

If you want a solution that is literally a one time installation, the NH-D14 would be the best choice. It is the most quiet of the 3 you list even at 100% fan speed. The H80i and NH-D14 are dead even when it comes to performance but in the sound portion the NH-D14 wins hands down!

What motherboard so you have? This could affect the choice of coolers, as they will get in the way of the first expansion/PCI-e slot.

You should be fine with the wider coolers.

Te D14, Thermalright SB-e or IB-e, and the Phanteks. These are all good dual tower coolers, get the one you like the look of or the cheapest one, they all preform the same really.

I would go with the D14 personally, easy to mount and is within your budget (See Here)

They all will look like big furuncle coming from the motherboard smile.gif

However for the look I prefer this one or this

They are very old, they will work, but i dunno how quiet or how well they will work. As long as you are aware of that when you buy it.

At the moment I'm playing with the new TRUE Spirit 140 Power.
http://www.amazon.com/Thermalright-True-Spirit-140-Power/dp/B00IYEEOMO/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1397406494&sr=1-1&keywords=true+spirit+140+power

Here is a review where it's as good as NH-D14 SE2001 (comes with PWM fans). Notice the TRUE Spirit 140 Power is quieter than NH-D14 SE2011
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?288762-Thermalright-TRUE-Spirit-140-Power

With 2 fans it outperforms the NH-D14..Here is a review using TY-143 fans on both. 1200rpm is 100rpm below TY-147 stock fan on TRUE Spirit 140 Power. Lenny used TY-143 fans because at 1200rpm they perform the same as TY-147 at 1200rpm. TY-14x series are as good or better than stock MH-D14 fans.
