Intel Xeon X5675 Cooling questions

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
New to the forums, so help is greatly appreciated. smile.gif
I just recently got a free Intel Xeon X5675 3.06 GHz (processor only) from work and I purchased a used ASUS SABERTOOTH X58 Motherboard, can I cool my X5675 with a "Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO" or should I jump to a "Noctua NH-D14"? I Don't plan on overclocking (for now) but I usually push my CPU with my work (Motion graphic/ 3D effects). I was also looking into the "Corsair Hydro Series H55", is that any better then the Cooler Master Hyper or Noctua NH-D14? My PC Tower is an old Dell Studio XPS.

I'm kinda new to all this and didn't know where to ask, if it was ROMing a phone I would go straight to XDA but for (Noobish) questions on CPUs I thought I try here and some other forums.
If there's anything else you need to know pls ask. Thx thumb.gif


The setup I'm working on is:
Xeon X5675
ASUS SABERTOOTH X58
24GB Kensington Hyper 1333 Ram
4GB EVGA GTX 770 Classified w Backplate
Cooling ???
Dell XPS Studio Case
2x 1TB Samsung EVO 850 SSD

uh you can definitely get better coolers than these two, the question is how much of a oc are you looking for,
noctua d15, phantek, cryorig r1, basically any good dual tower cooler, only go these all in one water cooler if your case doesn't permit the areas u need for a dual tower air.

I should have mentioned I'm trying to stay in the lower cost range like sub $65 range. I don't plan overclocking it for now 3ghz seems like enough but in the future at some point I know I'm going to want to play around with OCing. My current PC case does not allow dual tower cooling fans that's why I was looking at the h55 model.
So what I'm really trying to figure out is what's the recommended cooling in my price range for a non overclocked X5675.

if ur not overclocking a stock intel fan will do lol.

but if you have future oc in sight. and dual tower is not an option, and with a budget of 65 bucks. i would recommend either the hyper or this cryorig

At stock, you dont need an aftermarket cooler. Assuming your case has decent airflow and all... If you felt you needed one, the Hyper 212 Evo is fine. However, if you decide to overclock later on, you may want a better one. The Noctua D14/D15 is about as good as it gets for air cooling. If you can justify the cost, you wont be disappointed.

The Noctua is better than the H55...

Temps at stock speeds will make you laugh at the 45nm counterpart chips.. my lowest core temp, according to Realtemp GT, is 22*c in 70*f ambients

I'm thinking about getting either Noctua NH-U14S or Noctua NH-D14 both about $70-75 and both gotta be much better then a stock Cooling.

Which do you guys recommend?

Xeon are running at lower voltage than mainstream, because of the additional cores. also they are designet for servers, meaning running 50C 24/7, and usually with small server heatsinks.

many Xeon are limited to BLCK overclocking, but they might differ.

so you ought to be good for now.
