[TechPowerUP] Noctua Presents Two Asymmetrical 140mm CPU Coolers - Page 3

When I was building my system in 2011, my affordable RAM choices were limited because the most popular and affordable sets wouldn't fit underneath one of the heatsinks of the Noctua NH-9B SE2. At the time, the most affordable enthusiast RAM that most people bought were the G.Skill Ripjaws and Corsair Vengeance lines, neither of which would clear underneath with their ridiculous heatspreaders. It was stupid. I ended up paying extra to get the Vengeance LP.

Tall RAM heatspreaders are a plague. They need to go away.

Should have hopped on the Samsung "miracle" ram like most of us did when it came out. Low profile, low voltage ( 1.3v ) and best of all, amazing overclocking.

Looked like ass though with a green PCB.

I use the Prolimatech Megahalems myself and have np clearing standard size ram although i prefer low profile ram. Its nice to see them offering more options but results will be very similar depending on ambient room temps. I would also like to start seeing them offer there darker colored fans as an option because these are hideous.

Green PCB? No. Mine are all black PCB's. Every one I've seen has been black PCBs

There likely were, much older ones though. But any from the last bunch of batches I've seen were all black.

Yeah, that would have been perfect when I was running 16GB. Unfortunately, I missed the boat on that because it appears those debuted about a year and a half after my build and I had stopped paying attention by then.

i, uh, don't think "wasted airflow" is a thing

You either make the fan bigger than the towers and 'waste' some airflow, or you make the fan smaller than the tower and waste some heatsink fins. Definitely the first option is better than the second. Inevitable effect of circular fans and square heatsink towers


The answer to that is, if the fan juts under, it gives the VRM heatsink some airflow! thumb.gif Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I have a D14 sitting on my Gigabite Sniper mATX 3570k.

Black PCB FTW

The low profile black pcb came with HYK0 ICs. The ones with green PCB mostly came with the HCH9 ICs, which still overclock pretty well. I think there was a generic low profile green pcb sold in other countries that came with the HYK0. There's also low profile registered ECC samsung RAM for servers that use the same ICs.
