5820k upgrade need cooling advice - Page 3

If you go NH-14, get the NH-D14 SE2011. It has the mount you need and also has PWM fans, which the normal D14 does not have.

The D14 do not support 2011 out of box. Unless you have an Asus board that has X-Socket.
You have to get the NM-I2011 mounting kit from Noctua which is free or you can buy the kit for $15 if need a rush for it.
As for prices, it varies on the retailer and where you are located.
I am gonna be going with an asus board haven't decided which tho. Was thinking the asus x99 pro, do you know if its any good? And as far as the cooler not trying to spend more than 100

Measure up your case so we know what your CPU clearance is. If you have 165mm, the TRUE Spirit 140 Rev. A is 165.15 officially. The two I've actually measured were just under 165mm. I think most dimensions posted by companies are not from physical measurement, but from their CAD drawings. So it is not uncommon for the tops of heatpipes to vary slightly when actual measurements are taken compared to the CAD machine drawings / programs used in manufacturing.

Hey I know its been a week and all but after taking everyone advice into consideration i decided to get the fractal define s. With this case is the noctua d15 my best option for lowest temps on a air cooler?
post #26 of 28
best is a matter of opinion. the top coolers like the D15 and others are all within 2 to 3C of eachother and there is little difference which top end cooler you get. most of the time it comes down to which color scheme you are going with and which cooler happens to be on sale at the time of purchase. I would say stick with noctua since they have the guarantee of supplying different mounting kit for your cooler if a new socket is introduced. it adds value for the usability of that cooler in future builds.

Also does anyone know if the d15 will work with the asus x99 deluxe 3.1?

All top cooler have basically the same cooling ability. Top 20 coolers have less than 2-3c difference. Case airflow (supplying components with coolest possible air) usually makes way more difference than what cooler is being used. Most builds supply cooler with air 7-12c above room temp. Best are 2-3c difference .. and 15-20c is not at all uncommon.

That said, the best coolers are D15, R1 Ultimate (& Universal), Silver Arrow SB-E & IB-E (Extreme version is 6-9c better, but louder when run above 1300rpm), PH-TC14PE, HE01, and a few others like Dark Rock Pro 3. All are within 1-2c, and that is mostily in the TIM seat or air. Too close to accurately say one is better than another.

Coolers less than 3c warmer than the very best include all models of TRUE Spirit 140 (aprox $50.00), NH-U14S, Athlon, HR-02 / Macho coolers, and about 40 others.

X99 Deluxe series has 77mm center CPU to near edge of PCIe socket and 55c toward RAM socket.
D15 is about 76-77 with fan clips.

Define S has plenty for clearance for RAM up to 44mm tall under a 140mm fan.
