i7 5820k, Asrock X99 Extreme4 and G. Skill Ripjaws4 RAM - Which air cooler won't get blocked by any of the components?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So here are the components that I'm worrying about:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Z39gf7

I wanted to choose the Noctua NH-D15 as my cooling solution, but someone already explained to me that I might face some issues:

1.) The cooler would be blocked by RAMs on the right side of the CPU. Well, a fan could be moved up a bit.

2.) The cooler would block the first PCI-E slot.

It's worth mentioning that I won't be doing any hard OC, because the pc will be in use only for rendering/3d modeling. Some minor OC might be done, ofc, if the temperatures allow it.
I would like to hear about more air cooling solutions, but bare in mind that the price of Noctua D15 is the absolute MAX what I'm willing to pay for, so water coolers are out of question.

Which air cooler would you recommend?

I would just get the single tower noctua cooler

The NH-D15 is probably the best air cooling solution you can get that allows for clearance of high-profile memory (large ram heatsinks) on X99.

As far as i'm aware the other equivalent coolers won't even fit on X99 platform with low-profile memory.

Personally, I would go with that provided;

A. You don't need to use all of your PCI-E slots. (GPU in the second PCI-E slot will perform the same)

B. You have good airflow in whatever case you have.

I've used the NH-D15 in my rig with a 5820K and it performed roughly the same as my Kelvin S36 with lower noise levels.

Without knowing what case you plan to use it's hard to make recommendations. There are many coolers to chose from within a couple degrees and dBA of each other. D15 cooler does have lots of RAM clearance, but the it is 150mm wide, meaning right to the PCIe socket, so if your GPU has anything on back of PCB it will not clear .. and depending on what case is used the front fan may not fit over the RAM. To me the D15 is kinda a joke. The old D14 cools just as well with same fans .. and is 70mm center CPU toward PCIe with 44mm clearance from top of CPU to bottom fin, and that is only one of may cooler that will fit with no issues. Depending where you live there are some very nice $40-50 coolers that are very close if not as good as the very best. Thermalrgiht TRUE Spirit 140 variants, Macho variants, etc. Really need to know what case you will be using.

Asrock X99 Extreme 4 has about 75mm center CPU to hear side of PCIe socket and 53m to near side of RAM socket.
G. Skill Ripjaws 4 are 40mm tall, so 35mm above top of CPU.

I'm planning to use only PCI anyway, so unless all of the PCI-e slots have the same speeds, I don't really care which slot I put my GPU in.

Oh right, I forgot to mention the case. The case I'll buy will probably be Fractal Design Define R5, so as far as Im aware, it has enough space for big coolers such as D15. What about Dark Rock cooler?

Dark Rock Pro 3 is quite good and great looking. Love mine. A degree or two warmer than some, but quieter too. Another good looker and performer are R1 Ultimate and R1 Universal. The black nickel plating on Macho Zero and black anodized top fins of some other Thermalright coolers look nice too. They use TY-147A fan that idles down to 300rpm and is black housing with white fan.

Have you looked at any of the Phanteks cases? They are very good too.

Unfortunately they don't sell Cryorig here, so this is out of question as well. Was looking at Macho, Scythe Mugen Max, Evo212, D15, Dark rock pro 3, but that's about it.
Also, I have checked PHANTEKS Enthoo Pro M case, doesn't lookt bad at all

I mounted a Thermalrite Macho on an X99 rig and it cleared the first PCIe slot barely (Asus RVE) even with the backplate mounted on the GPU. It cleared the ram (Ripjaws 4), and I think you could run a 120mm fan on the opposite side of the 140mm fan - two 140mm fans wouldn't clear the ram on both sides. Different mobo, but maybe you can cross reference the dimensions to get an idea of compatibility.

The NH-D15S fits with no issue in terms of RAM. The first PCIe is tough, but unless you are running three GPUs, you can use slots 2+3 for SLI with no issues (at least on ASUS boards, ASRock may be a whole different matter).

I thought the only difference between D15 and D15S is 1 additional fan on D15?
