What cooling for new build asap

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for the right cooling for my build that is coming next week sometime. I will be using a CM Stacker 830, and am looking to cool an E8400, I also need help with what fans to use, I need about 6 more 120mm fans that have a good balance of airflow to quietness. I want to order the rest of the parts ASAP so all the help I can get would be appreciated.

Get a Thermalright Ultra 120 extreme from http://www.crazypc.com/products/ultr...eme-50983.html

You can get it lapped for an additional $19 which is quite affordable and saves you the time and work to do it. I was really happy with my purchase from them.

You might want to consider getting slipstream fans from there also as bang for the $ they are hard to beat.

EDIT: The fans move an incredible amount of air and work very well as I have them.

They will lap it for you but the Intel Chip also needs to be flattened by lapping.

If you are going to do one, you mind as well do both. There a lots of guides on OCN that can get you up to speed and comfortable enough to lap your CPU & HSF.

I think I would rather just lap it myself and I don't think I will lap the CPU in case I need the warranty for some reason.

They do move a lot of air but they are 37dB and they are not shiny.... did I mention that I like SHINY? colored LED's on at least 4 fans are almost necessary.
