CPU Heatsink for Cooltek W2 (163mm clearance)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm considering building my next system inside the Cooltek W2. It's that or the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV mATX. The Phanteks supprts full-sized heatsinks, more drives, and should theoretically be cooler due to the additional ventilation. The Cooltek W2 on the other hand looks amazing, fits ATX boards, and should be very silent due to the lack of any ventilation and the 4mm think aluminium.

If I go with the Phanteks I can choose whatever cooler I like (probably Cryorig R1 Ultimate). I'm far more limited to motherboards, but at least I would be safe with airflow and cooling.

If I went with the W2, what tower heatsink + fans would you folks recommended? I've seen some fantastic looking builds by Malik and a couple of others who have used Noctua dual tower heatsinks and replaced the NF-A15 fans with 120mm variants to stay within the 160mm limit that many smaller cases have. Is that the better option for keeping an overclocked cool (6600/6700K-style CPU at 4.6Ghz, for instance), or should I look into heatsinks that were specifically designed for 120mm fans? If the Noctua dual tower heatsink is recommended, what fans should I be looking at? The Noctua 120mm fans are obviously going to be suggested and ideal, but they won't fit my colour scheme. Any other recommendations?

First let me say that if you have the choice to select the W2, then I'm extremely jealous. And this post will be difficult for me emotionally. It's not your fault you live in a region where you can purchase the W2 and I don't. Won't stop me from blaming you tho. Sorry, jealousy is like that.

The Cooltek (Jonsbo) W2 is a gorgeous case! So elegant in silver and glass. An elegant computer case, how it that even possible?


The Phanteks is the North American Revenge of the Empire ghetto option in comparison.




If you must choose elegant lines in aluminum and glass over a blob of steel and plexi that had its fascia pushed in to improve its looks, but didn't help, consider a D15S.

The D15S is 160mm tall with the center fan. It's offset array won't block the first PCIe slot either. And only suffers a 2 degree deficit to the two fanned D15. And would look stunning with the glint of the morning light bouncing off that exquisite fin array in that stunning W2. Ok, I'm feeling even more jealous. Just get that ugly EVOLV and suffer with rest of us stormtrooper wannabes.

If fan colour is important, can substitute another high quality 140mm that fits the theme. I like the Noctua 140mm industrial 24V 3000rpm (1600rpm at 12V) in black. Or the black framed, white bladed TR TY-147a (not the higher speed TY-143 since it has an orange and red scheme that goes with nothing, not even itself).

The NB-eLoop B14-PS 140mm is very sexy and quiet - won't quite match the stock A15 fan for performance tho. The black & white NZXT FX140 V2 offers similar performance to the TY-143, but without the motivation to scratch your eyes out while it defiles the sensual and well ventilated (2X 140mm and 2X 120mm intakes) W2 environ.

Or could even use the all black, Cryorig XF140. It doesn't quite match the Noctua A15 for smoothness and performance, but since you will be able to gaze on the most artistically sublime case available (except to me), your ears need to suffer for your art. In fact, since I just acquired a bunch of the XF140s, I'd be willing to swap a pair...for say a...W2. biggrin.gif

Dependent on the MB, could install a 2nd 140mm on the rear of the D15S without exceeding 163mm. Or dependent on low profile ram, which is rare in DDR4 atm, a 140mm on the front tower. Or could use a 120mm PWM GT in black or Fractal HP120 in black. But why hide those beautiful shiny fins just to obtain a couple degrees?

Alternately might consider the Scythe Fuma - it's a petit 149mm tall twin tower that can play in the big twin tower leagues provided you can take the pressure while applying the clamping pressure to an innocent Skylake pcb. See @ehume's Fuma review. It's a cute little twinner, with a pair of black GTs could look almost as good in the glint of the late afternoon light bouncing off that exquisite D15S fin array in that stunning W2.

Ok, that's it! I'm in a jealous rage now! I'm not proud saying it, just BUY that stupid looking Phanteks and stick the R1 in there. Which...it just so happens....I have a spare R1...I could be persuaded to trade for say...a W2. biggrin.gif

I love your enthusiasm. +Rep biggrin.gif

I'm thinking if I make the build a minimalist/industrial look—black fans (maybe NB Black Silent Pro), subtle motherboard (the ASUS Sabertooth would match the Noctua cooler, but it's an expensive board), and maybe black cables with one or two brown (Noctua brown) stripes. This would make the Noctua D15S the centerpiece and all focus would be on it as well as the case.

Something like this:



Or I could replace the fan with the TY-147 or Redux NH-P14r. Phanteks and Cryorig's fans are also options. I don't really want to go with a square 140mm fan. I'd consider a square 120mm fan, but I imagine performance will drop considerably.

Depending on what RAM you use the PH-TC14PE should fit, at least with middle fan as long as you replace the thumb screw that holds the cooler crossbar with a normal Philips screw.


Alpenfohn Olymp is another possible cooler. I have not used it but the few reviews I've seen show it doing well.

Love that minimalist look and theme concept! Build it!

I'll be even more jealous, but that's my problem and will need to get professional case therapy. My current nCase M1 build may help a little. Not enough tho, so when you reveal your ravishing pics of your W2 build in the Jonsbo / Cooltek gallery thread, expect me to post horrible comments about it. biggrin.gif

You can't use a Noctua iPPC fan. Those are NF-A14 fans -- square frames won't fit between motherboard heatsinks. You'll need round-frame fans. If the Noctua color disturbs you, you will have to use a TR TY-147A. Or a TY-143; but alas, that one is kind of red from the side.

Between this and the W2 you are after my heart. wubsmiley.gif Tasteful scheme, hope you keep a build log! thumb.gif

Stock A15 and a black custom frame vanity cover perhaps?

That's an idea. I'll have to have a look into how easy it is to disassemble the NF-A15 to paint the frame. I love the colour scheme of Noctua, but you can't match it with anything else. If the frame was black you could easily match the brown from the blades to fan motor stickers on the case fans and custom cabling. Black, brown and silver could definitely be cool. As long as the ASUS Strix Vega GPU stays colour neutral (it makes sense they keep the same DC3 cooler from the Pascal range of nVidia GPU's and Polaris RX480 GPU) or Sapphire release their Nitro with a black shroud like the Fury Nitro and 480 Nitro, it could work. Sapphire also tend to use silver in their backplates, which could be perfect.

Probably gonna wait for Zen/Kaby Lake and Vega, but I could theoretically build right now as everything should fit. I'll put up a build log when I start building.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. thumb.gif
