Which temporary air cooler for 5820k test before watercooling? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
I "think" I found an intel air cooler for half the cost:

http://www.acmemicro.com/Product/9981/Intel-LGA2011-Thermal-Solution-RTS2011AC-Active-Cooling-Kit-BXRTS2011AC-for-Core-i7-Processor-Air-Cooled-Retail?gclid=CjwKEAiAoIK1BRCRiMqphvnlwlwSJAAOebPMfGzX7NDWiDyVHdQcsqvbmxaTc-kflM3hvJZaGjWwUhoCTRjw_wcB

They list it as 2nd generation i7 fan & heat sink - the "k" version designates it being 2nd gen right? So I should be good to go with this one on compatibility?

Can anyone verify that is the right one for the 5820k? It seems to have a different part number than the one listed on ebay for $54:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-LGA2011-Core-i7-Cooler-Heatsink-Fan-for-i7-5820K-i7-5930K-Processo-New-/400872535394?hash=item5d55dd7562:g:uhAAAOSwrklU5vAf

I'm honestly surprised the stock intel air coolers are as expensive as they normally are since not many people seem to use them.

Just get the 212. It will work fine for what you need. Then once you do water cool you can save the 212 for another rig.

The hyper 212 is good choice if you want to throw around that kind of money. (newegg $24.99 AR ;-)

If you want to spend less then the Raijintek Aidos at $19.99 is great little stand-in cooler without any memory compatibility issues and is a cheaper, better choice than the Intel leafblower.

I think because of how tight my memory is built to the CPU socket & how tall my particular memory is, the 212 isn't going to work for me.

And it's going to be a few weeks/month or so before my desk case is finished/finalized, but in the mean time I am going to use a caselabs test bench mobo setup that will then become part of my build, so I wanted to be able to run all 4 sticks of ram at the same time and take advantage of my build via the test bench until then.

I've attached a couple pics of my mobo & memory, as you can see it's a tight fit, there is only 4" between the memory sticks and they are just about 2" tall from the base of the mobo - do you still think the Aidos will fit or will I have to use the intel leafblower?

Should be plenty of space, the little Aidos is just over 2" deep (55mm). And it's only 15mm wider than the square ILM socket (80×80 mm mounting pattern)

Full specs: 95mmW×55mmD×136H mm - smaller footprint than a Noctua U9L which fits your board as well. With fan it's only about 10mm deeper than the standard intel blower.

Only thing is, this little guy will only be good for a 100mhz overclock, at best. ;-)

Awesome, great to hear! I'm gonna place the order for it now unless you think the Noctua U9L is a better choice? Although I think it's a more expensive choice? Are you sure that is the right model #? Not much is coming up for the U9L?

No worries on the OC, not going to attempt that until stable waterloop is set up.

The Aidos does come with a fan from newegg for the price of $20 right?

Yes, fan is included. They offer a Black or Red fan version. No blue version tho, which is really thoughtless of them.

Sorry, typo, meant D9DX. Here's the whole list of compatible Noctua coolers for your board. Yes, the Noctua would better than the Aidos, but it's pricey as a temp testing solution.

if you going to spend $50+ might as well get a Thermalright TS 140A for $49 or Scythe Kotetsu at $47. Both are high compatibility, quiet, high performance coolers that will fit your board and perform within 3-5 degrees of the premium twin tower coolers.

Perfect, thanks for the info. Just placed my order for the Aidos @ $20 shipped. If it was a permanent cooler, I would have spent more, but since it's only temporary until I get my desk case & waterloop set up, cheaper is always better, as long as I'm retaining enough cooling to keep CPU safe.
