Cryorig vs Be Quiet! vs Phanteks - Page 2

post #11 of 39
Thread Starter 
Glad that you two are getting along tongue.gif. So I'm kinda set on getting the Cryorig since $69.99 is the cheapest I've seen for this cooler according to my resources. I'm just debating on the whether I can use the Ultimate because I know my RAM is overly tall and my northbridge is not the smallest thing in the world. Images make the cooler seem huge. Will it fit? I'm pretty sure my case will fit it but mb and ram compatibility, I dont know.

Scythe Fuma, the new air cooling king by the looks of it...its not very tall, so you will need short ram, but it hangs with 240mm radiators, and makes much less noise.

As far as clearance, keep in mind that you can remove the trim piece on the Trident X, so you have no issue.

I have done a number of comparison tests of each of these coolers for articles in the past. On a 4790K, the temp differences between them will be very negligible. If you have sensitive hearing, the Dark Rock Pro 3 should distinctly be your top choice - it is incredibly quiet, and the sound is very smooth. The 14PE is also pretty smooth but a bit louder, while the R1 (in either configuration) will be the loudest and coarsest sounding.

But, to put it in perspective, they are all going to be substantially quieter than the CLC you are replacing.

I still have all of these on hand, and if I were going back to air it would be a tough call, but I would likely go with the DRP3.

It will fit if you either raise the front fan a bit, or remove the trim piece on the stick of Trident X closer to the CPU. It will be under the fan, so you won't see it, anyway.

It isn't horrendous at all.......if you bother to read the instruction manual.....which almost no reviewers did, which led to a ton of users trying to install them wrong. Of course it's difficult to install if you are doing it entirely wrong. If you follow the manual it is very average as far as difficulty.

http://www.overclockers.com/scythe-fuma-heatsink-review/ Fuma is cheap, and with a 3rd Scythe Slipstream fan on it, its competing with an EK Predator (can also benefit from any old fan with high airflow, it needs next to no static pressure), it can also have tall ram installed after reading about it again, its also the smallest dual tower heatsink of the lot.

I had the DRP3 as my first choice but I can't find a vendor in the US that has it in stock or is under 100 hence my other options. I'm really diggin the R1 look and the current price tongue.gif

The R1 is on sale at Newegg I have a TC14PE and for about the same price I'd go for the R1 on looks alone. I took the Phanteks since at the time it was $20-$30 cheaper.

I`m starting to wonder if I`m posting in a different language, or my posts are hidden?...
http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=9SIA9ZH3ZD3946 cheaper than R1, beats it in every metric, whats to consider?
