I5 4690k incoming, need cooler suggestions - Page 2

post #11 of 43
I'm seeing statements saying 153mm CPU clearance and you are saying PCpartPicker says Macho Rev.B will fit, and it is 162mm tall.

So unless you can find out what the CPU clearance actually is or better yet, pick a case that the making freely tells us the CPU clearance I'm afraid I can't suggest a cooler.

if his CPU clearance is 153mm, then the scythe fuma is likely the best bet. it's only 150mm tall and a decent cooler for that height. it's one of the best choices for a 4U server chassis

I got a Corsair carbide Spec 03 case and planning to get an Asus Z97 pro gamer mobo.
I originally considered to get a CM hyper 212 EVO but considering its age i was curious if anything better popped up by now.

My question is - do you already own this case? If you do not...you can be into an Enthoo Pro M, NZXT Phantom 240/S340 or Fractal Arc Midi at similar pricing. Which would make this case a really, really bad buy.

Just like I said, for this budget you should honestly buy the Scythe Fuma; it's the best buy for your needs/budget.
For a case you could also look at the brand new Phanteks eclipse. It's a real bargain/beautfy for the money thumb.gif

Alpenfohn Atlas is same size and performs better.

I probably should have said this before but i got standard sized RAM so not sure how things like the Alpenfohn Atlas one fit.

Also for the people asking, i don't have the case in my possession yet but it is on the way so no turning back now.

not sure if i would agree with this recommendation.

the atlas uses a 92mm fan instead of 120mm fan so decibel is sacrificed to achieve cooling performance. it's also a 5 pipe cooler instead of a 6 pipe like the fuma. not saying a 5 pipe cooler cant cool as well as a 6 but the amount of surface area involved for cooling and the spread of the heat within the allotted surface area is not as good as the 120mm/6 pipe fuma. the overall mass of the unit is also significantly lower then the fuma so the thermal capacity would be lower on the cooler itself.

unless the pipes used are significantly different (mesh vs sintered) then the overall performance of the fuma will be superior to the atlas due to the overall size and weight. only reason to use a smaller cooler would be if the height constraint is less then 150mm.

I have to say that I agree. While I can't find any verifiable info, common sense would dictate that the Fuma is the better cooler. Add in that you are talking about a Scythe versus a Deepcool. Personally, based on that alone I would be reaching for the Fuma.

Well, for whatever reviews are worth:

Well both look interesting but i am not sure the Alpenfohn atlas would actually fit considering i don't have low profile RAM and that thing looks gigantic.
So unless i can get confirmation that that one is actually above my RAM it is probably going to be the Fuma.

And i am sorry for the slow trickling info.
This is way more complicated then i initially thought and i am completely out of my element here.
