Advice on best air cooler with HPC RAM in the way.

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Zalman CNPS9700 and its just not cutting it with my I7-950. I'm getting a nice 24/7 stable 4.05ghz, but the MAX temp during prime95 is 85c with an ambient of around 24-25c. In the summer it will be closer to 28-30c. I'm looking for advice on the highest performance air cooler that will fit in an Antec 900 with OCZ HPC Reaper RAM.

I know the Antec isn't a problem, but the pipes on the RAM limits what space I have to the side of the CPU. The cost isn't a major concern, I don't have a problem spending up to $140usd with fans. I'm also not to worried about noise, but jet engine levels are out.

I have thought about the H70, but this is a 24/7 rig that will run unattended most of the time so I'm concerned about using a WC setup, even if its sealed. Do I need to worry about the H70? I've never done WC, but I do understand the principals.

Thanks for any advice.

If space is an issue than go with the H70. Unless someone else has disaster stories, I'd say it'd be fine running unattended

what is your price range for it? You could get a megahelams.

XSPC Rasa Kit (RS240) could be a good solution if you want to go in water cooling. If not... H50/70 could be a good idea.

I can go $140usd with FANS - will the megahelms fit over the top of those pipes on the RAM? I haven't checked dimensions, but it doesn't look like it would.

I doubt it would. Seriously, the H70 is your best bet
post #7 of 32
if you are willing to spend 140 all together, i would say go with the rasa kit, will be much better then any air cooler you can buy.
the H50 and H70 can't even hold a candle to the rasa kits
I am runnning 4ghz with a max temp of 43c on my RS360 kit.

I though with 20mm fan it can fit but if you want to know, i think you can go on their web site and check the dimention.

seriously, if you are going to spend 140, just put that into a rasa kit, will result in much better temps, and you will have fun setting it up.
