Thermalright Archon?

I wonder how a top-down cooler would do in your setup.

For my setup (2x 680 DCII cards SLI = vents hot air into the case) I get improved systems temps with a 212+ over my H100 (in any configuration, see above post)

I also just happened to have 2 of these on hand (from different test-builds)...I may be in the market for another 120mm tower cooler if there is a better option out there.
(I would have to stick to a single "fin-stack" 120mm unit, as any larger would hit my top card XD)

Was that with the H100 set as intake or exhaust? I'm sure you'd see vastly improved results by exhausting with the H100.

What about an intake fan at the bottom of the case too (Define R4 with a window)? Thinking of trying that. My case should be here on Thursday! Unsure if I want to paint it or just use it as is... I'll see how I feel about it when I see it in person smile.gif

I'm looking forward to it. I just built a rig for a friend and paired a Hyper 212 EVO with a 3570K and was impressed with the noise/performance. It was just the little bit of reassurance that I needed for wanting to switch from an AIO kit to an air cooler. Since I'm not an extreme overclocker anyway an air cooler will suit me just fine. Sure it doesn't look as cool, but it'll save me money in the long run. tongue.gif

I am still deciding on a good motherboard to purchase from Microcenter when I get my refund. Going to make a little road trip to the nearest one and pick up an 3570K and a mobo. Can't beat that MC price, and even with gas factored in, I'm still coming in cheaper. thumb.gif

Excited to join the Intel side of things!

If you look at my linked post, I used it as both an intake and exhaust. Best system temps are still with the 212+ (All temps and configs are in that post)

Idk if it's just me, but aside from a custom water loop, I think a big tower cooler looks much better that an AIO thumb.gif

***Looking into the CM TPC 812, anyone have experience with this cooler/worth the upgrade?***

I've read some reviews and you'll probably shave off 2-3 degrees.. Its not really worth it to me, but I hate installing CPU coolers and I'm broke so I try to stick one out as long as I can. redface.gif

Yea it really does.. The appearance is what drew me to it at first, and the whole vapor chamber things sounds awesome too. Wish the 212 EVO had a fresh top redesign to it. I'm probably going to pick one of them up whenever I get my rig back up. I can't wait.. I miss gaming so baddd! tongue.gif
