Whats a adequate best bang for your buck air cooling for i7-5820k?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. Wanted to get your opinion on this. Im leaning towards the arctic freezer i30. (Note i said adequate, not best!)

I wanted to add, I would like it to be light as possible for shipping purposes.

adequate is a relative term.

since you are talking about a Haswell-E, there are some assumptions you need to clear up before we offer any usable advise. if you spent the $ for an extreme chip and a 2011 board, what kind of clock speeds are you looking for? what is the function of this build? what was the logic of getting the extreme chip in the 1st place? did you get the extreme chip simply to get the extra PCIe lanes for some reason? did you get it cheap off your brother / friend? or you are just trying to go cheap with a cooler that can allow the system to just operate at stock clocks?

what are other components in the system. what GPU(s) are you running, what kind of case? what is the airflow like for your case? etc...

plenty of questions that need to be answered before useful recommendation can be given.

I would not recommend anything less than Noctua D15 (could go with D15S) or Cryorig R1 Ultimate. Otherwise, buy the Swiftech H220X or the EK Predator series. Don't get anything else really but best in this case.

The reason being a 6 core will, clock for clock, generate about 50% more heat. Granted they are about 300 MHz or so slower clockspeed, but they still generate almost as much heat.

There is very little point in buying a Haswell E system and being "adequate". It's a huge waste to save money on the motherboard and CPU, only to be thermally limited in the OC. Otherwise, it's a waste and the money would have been better spent on a 4 core with a well cooled system.

For 45 bucks it's beast

true140 is a nice cooler, however, it's also a very tall cooler. unless we know what case the cooler is going into. it's irresponsible to recommend something that may not fit inside OP's case biggrin.gif

I have had a 4 pipe air cooler crack a mother board. It was shipped via UPS. So if you are going to ship it the aftermarket cooler should come off. It would not be necessary with water coolling. You might want to drain it, if you don't get a AIO

Forgive me, Fearless Leader, for being irresponsible.

Adequate? ... Well...... the stock cooler that comes with the CPU... because:

A. if the stock cooler was bad, it wouldnt be included ..... not saying it good either, but.... it is good enough.. thus adequate smile.gif
B. it comes for free.. you can have any more bang for buck as that


Note : i DO realise this was not the question you were asking... but this is a case of the goalie not defending his goal smile.gif

If you want light as possible for shipping purposes, get a notebook. biggrin.gif

Most any cooler larger than the size of the mounting pattern (80mm square) and 50-60mm tall should not be on mobo when shipping. That means going H2O and the only long term reliable ones are AIO, not CLC .. All in One, but not Closed Loop Cooler. AIOs are both CLCs (factory sealed with no provision for adding / changing coolant or changing components) as well as coolers that are pre-assembled and filled H2O systgems of components that are designed to be maintained, added to and replaced as needed. All CLCs are AIOs, but AIO are not all CLCs

You do know that the Extreme processors don't come with coolers?

I think the 5820k deserves a D-14 or better cooler, as it has a TDP of 140 watts.
