Easy to install cooler to replace hyper evo.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I hate everything about installing the hyper evo, so I'm in a hunt for a new cooler. I change CPUs/thermal a lot so I'm mostly looking for coolers that are easy to put on and still provides good temps. Is there such a thing?

Preferably not too expensive, but more expensive than the hyper evo is ok.

Thanks a lot.

Where do you live and links to online souces would be helpful
Your case's CPU clearance, RAM height and center CPU to PCIe socket are also important in determining what will fit.
Maximum budget figure, not a comparison to what you have now.

Hello.

I live in Denmark, here's a store: https://www.komplett.dk/category/10462/blaeserekoelerevandkoeling

My maximum budget would be about $95. (700kr ish)

I have skylake 6600k with normal sized hyperX 16gb, I don't think they are that much bigger than any ram I've had before. I use ATX boards.

Case is a Fractal Design Define S

That's a pretty limited selection, but the NH-U14S would suit your needs very well - https://www.komplett.dk/product/779015/hardware/blaeserekoelerevandkoeling/cpu-luftkoeling/noctua-nh-u14s-cpu-koeler

Extremely quiet, very easy to install and more than enough cooling capabilities for a 6600K.

I'm not limited to one store, if you have any cooler in mind, shoot ahead and I'll try to look for it.

NH-U14S is very good.

I think Cryorig and Noctua are a couple of the best because they use thumb screws and nuts Phanteks also uses thumb screws and nuts and are easy to use as long as the crossbar is attached to mount before final tightening of mount (to be sure crossbar screws line up with their holes in sidebars). Thermalright are good but just use small screws so a magnetic screwdriver is required, and their crossbar is not attached to cooler base so not as easy to install..

The 6600K does not need a big cooler. The Cryorig H5 would be good. Maybe H7 too, but I can't remember mounting it (only mounted for testing long ago).. @ciarlatano needs to remind me, but I'm sure he's sleeping right now.. I remember it does not use a through motherboard mount. The only down side to Cryorig install is user needs to know where to position cooler so it's screws line up with mount and start. It's not hard to do, but needs to be kept in mind .. and don't over-tighten the screws. The thread in so easy some people have thought they were not tight and broke them trying to make them tighter.


On a side note.
Many screws / nuts are now Pozidriv not Philips, and require the use of a Pozidriv bit. Phillips bits strip Pozidriv screw / nuts rather quickly and Pozidriv bits strip Phillips screw / nuts even faster. They look almost the same, but the 'X' of a Phillips is tapered while Pozidriv is not. Simply put they are not compatible .. not at all.

You can identify Pozidriv screws / nuts by the little dash marks between the slots

I know, it's off topic .. blushsmiley.gif

As @doyll noted, the Cryorig H5 would be an excellent choice if you can get it - it should be less expensive, better looking, performance would be close to the NH-U14, but it would be a little bit noisier.

I'm assuming it's this one? http://www.webhallen.com/dk-da/computerkomponenter/236688-cryorig_h5_ultimate_cpu_kylare&atcl=external:ref

That's a good price, and installation looks good.. hopefully RAM doesn't cause any troubles... I'm gonna buy it later today. thanks for the help

That is the one. The HyperX standard height RAM should be no issue at all. thumb.gif

That's it, as ciarlatano said.
Here is a detailed drawing of it's size and clearances from center CPU. You can figure out if it clears your RAM.


If your RAM is too tall to clear H5 Ultimate, the H5 Universal has better RAM clearance


Your Hyper X Fury is 30mm tall plus 3mm for socket means 33mm above motherboard or 28mm above base of cooler. H5 Ultimate with fan centered on cooler is 27mm, and fan can be easily raised a little. It won't be a problem
