Refreshment, I would recommend going through this forum and seeing what coolers for under $30 fit with a socket AM3 motherboard. I think that with that budget range you'll probably find that the 212+ is the best cooler, but whether it will fit without mods can be found somewhere else in here O.o

How did you fit the H80? Aren't the coils too short?

nice looking rig!

If it is, your build is strikingly similar to mine! except for the lighting.... and the H80.... and that gtx.... and that...nevermind, its not that similar

The H80 fit fine as the radiator is thick and the position of the socket on my motherboard is in the middle. It would of fit alot better if I had a shorter video card.
I had a H50 in my last build but I had the fans on full to keep it cool and it was loude. This one I have on the lowest setting on a i5 2500k OC to 4.5Ghz and it stays cooler and is quiet smile.gif

Hi i was wondering if the Hyper 212 would fit in my Vulcan
im using a LGA 1155 Motherboard (i read back that LGA 1155 has more space)
im using the Side Fan but i could get rid of it if i can fit a better CPU Cooler

currently im looking at Noctua nh-u9b se2 and i think it could fit easily, but im looking for better options since im planning to OC

need opinions
post #1728 of 2409
just noticed Noctua came out with the NH-L12 . would this fit in the Vulcan with a 6870 gpu also ? Could i still have the side fan on still ?

LundL, is that the CM GeminII S524? How does it perform? Is it more effective having the heatsink oriented in the direction as shown in your photos, or over the RAM?

Reason I ask is I'm in the market for a new heatsink for my Vulcan, and I can't decide between a top-style cooler like the GeminII or a tower-style cooler like the Hyper 101.

If I were to get a tower-style cooler I think I'd mount it horizontally so it vents upwards through the two 120mm exhaust fans at the top
