Corsair H115i or NZXT X61 for 6700K OC? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
With a large case you got, you should be going full custom loop.
Heatsink over ram is not an issue or affect performance. You can move ram to different slots. Instead of 1/3 you do 2/4.
If you talking about top case clearance, that is also not an issue.

The H115i is a rebranded H110i GTX. This is according to Corsair's employees. So, if you want to see how it will perform vs a Kraken X61, then there are a lot of reviews on the web that compare the two. (Spoiler: the H110i GTX is maybe 2 or 3 degrees cooler).

TweakTown did a review of this unit and found the Corsair was cooler than the X61 at max RPM. In quiet mode, it was about the same as the Kraken.

Both units are made by Asetek and then rebranded. Both are 280mm. Corsair offers a 5 year warranty and NZXT apparently offers a 6 year warranty. As for noise, they are probably about the same at max RPM. So, it comes down to aesthetics really. Which CPU block do you like the looks of? I prefer the Corsair (I own the H115i), but that's personal preference.

Most apart from the uber tall sinks have no problem with clearance.

I'm using Gskill Trident Z.

Custom loop too expensive for me. frown.gif

I've already populated all 4 Ram slots so I don't want to lose any slot.

How about the software came with its? I see a lot of people complain about Corsair Link rather than CAM software of NZXT.

Corsair Link has worked perfectly for me. No crashes, no bugs, no weird behavior. It comes in handy to make a fan curve for the radiator fans (you can base it on CPU temp, water temp or other things). It's also useful for keeping an eye on water temperature (I usually monitor my CPU temps via other software utilities). I am running version 4.2.3.41 which is the latest version as of this writing. No complaints here, though I don't have any experience with NZXT's CAM software. I imagine it is similar in functionality.

IMO, just buy whichever cooler is cheaper. That's what I would do. They are both going to perform better than anything except 360mm CLC's or custom loops.

If you're asking me, then it depends on the load and the voltage being pushed to the CPU. I am running at 1.26v and Prime95 (with AVX) hits mid 70's. All other stress tests (AIDA, XTU, etc) run low to mid 60's. At stock clocks, it stays in the low 50's with stress tests (except for AVX tests, then it runs low 60's).

But you're better off looking at benchmarks done by professional benchmarkers since they have test benches and compare coolers with the same system.

Ahhh close... damn close...

I personally would remove the sinks and just go with the Phanteks... or one of the many coolers without ram clearance issues.

My experience with CLC's.. Overpriced, Loud, Unreliable and only a couple C better than much cheaper dual towers.

Ok I decide to go with the H115i because I have better deal for that.

Another concern: If I want to use push-pull configuration, beside 2 fans include, which 2 fans should I buy for complete setup?

In my location I can buy these fan:

- Thermalright TY-143.
- Phanteks F140 HP.
- Phanteks F140 XP.
- Phanteks F140 SP.
