With a similar build went 280 in front,
Neither will fit, as you have 161mm max before you hot the window. 160mm is max you want to do.

Damm man, which air cooler with good price and performance could you recommend me then? (I accept WC suggestions)

My only other option besides those two would be the XIGMATEK DARK NIGHT II 140(L)x140(W)x25(H) mm dimensions, but this cooler doesn't even have some benchmark or reviews for their newer version,

Also i searched for LUCIFER V2 reviews in newegg and saw this guy that could fit it, but looks like that he had a lot of work:


"4 out of 5 eggsquite large, very cool.
This review is from: DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm Lucifer V2 CPU Cooler 6 Heatpipes 140mm Silent PWM Fan Support LGA 2011-v3
Pros: very cool, my CPU operates at 22 degrees Celsius on low workload and maxed around 55 degrees Celsius under stress testing I have the new Skylake i7 6700K.

Cons: larger than expected once stock fan is in place on cooling unit. I would have to compromise between either not having access to ram slots or having the unit not fit in my case (too tall to close the case side panel) ... I used a different fan on the cooler because of this.

Other Thoughts: Take your time putting together the mounting hardware, the installation illustration is very informative and almost all motherboards have some similar organization. 1151 Sockets use the 1150 mounting.

It is very important to apply a high quality thermal grease (Arctic Silver) when putting this thing on, and a little goes a long way.

Like the others have said, a long screwdriver is needed to get the two spring loaded mounting screws snug.

Luckily my case has a fan right above the cooling stack that blows straight down into the layers of the cooling fins. I wound up swapping this 120 mm case fan for the fan that came with the device, I used some stripped copper wire to fashion my own little mounting braces for the smaller fan and put the green fan that came with the device in the place of the case fan (above the cooling unit, I have an NZXT S340 Case). I know it's a little hacky, but the temperature is monitored from the motherboard anyway so it will still trigger the green fan when it knows things are heating up and perhaps it will just take the fan a bit longer to realize how much it need to ramp up. For those who are interested in which motherboard I used that had clearance issues with, my motherboard is a GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0)"

What do you think?

Thanks for your patience and attention

I would recommend the cryorig h5 ultimate or even the h7 which is a little smaller.

I got the h5 ultimate and their slim xt140 fan to put on the front of the cooler to clear the ram slots. The cooler basically touches the side panel but doesn't interfere with taking it off or putting it on.

I posted pics a couple pages back

Just ordered a second S340 to scope out and practice some modding ideas I've been toying with. Ordered some new dremel bits too biggrin.gif

Very nice, I"m going to buy this h5 ultimate (importing from u.s) , the taxes from brazil will be expensive but **** it, also my nxzt case will have only the two originals fans, do you think it's good to buy another one or two and where is the best place to put it ? which brand do you recommend ?

Also, watching your video i realized that one of the FANS (THE BIGGER ONE at west) from h5 ultimate looks like was not spinning , why? its normal?

Thanks for your help too bro!

Also, with the originals two fans of s340 , which is the best place to place one more additional fan for better temps?
post #1758 of 2660
You will want to get 2x140mm fans for the front intake.
The stock fans are fine for exhaust in rear and top.

Actually they were are all spinning. You talking about the white led one or black fan on the back of the cooler?

The Cryorig C1 would be another awesome cooler I think if you didn't plan on any overclocking and wanted more space inside the case

I like how the NZXT white led fans look better, and flowed better than the corsair white led af140's i had the first time round. I would also recommend the NZXT grid+ v2 fan controller for your fans

The C1 is perfect to OC with as you can see below. Temps are below 60c under heavy load.
