OK, I hate to dither but I still haven't nailed this down. Here is where I am:

1. I want to overclock my 1090T to at least 3.8GHz (+20%), but 4 would be great.
2. I want quiet. The sound on the stock is driving me nuts.
3. Saving money is always good.

I feel like I've narrowed it down to two options:

1. Scythe SCMG-2100 Sleeve CPU Cooler (is this the same as the Scythe Mugen 2? Ig not, which is preferable?) ($47 plus shipping)
2. Noctua NH-D14 ($80 ships free)
3. Thermalright Silver Arrow ($85 plus shipping)

Is the $30 more for the Noctua or Thermalright really worth the money?

Is there a some characteristic other than taste/religion in choosing between the Noctua and the Thermalright?

I'm moving away from the Frio, the HT 212 and a couple others because their specs say they are louder.

Thoughts?

It's the same thing. $43 shipped.

Yes, the $30 price difference is worth it. Both the Silver Arrow and the Noctua are silent, but the Noctua's should be a little quieter, while the SA will perform better.

I can recommend the Thermaltake FRIO. I am switching over to water cooling and I just ran a test with my 1090T. I needed a "before" temp reading for comparison purposes. Here are the results:



OC'ed to 4.0Ghz, voltage at 1.376, Max load temp. was 55C during a 6 hr. 40 min. Prime95 run. Ambient temp was around 24C (76F). Depending on your MOBO you may need low profile RAM though. I have a push/pull fan configuration on it so it sticks out over the first RAM slot on my MSI 790FX-GD70. I use the Shin-Etsu TIM.

Kahbrohn, why are you switching over to water? Your setup seems pretty sweet as it. My concern with the Frio is the noise. How loud is it?

tmunn, I am intrigued by the fact that you have my motherboard and use a Xigmatek S1283 but you are proposing that I use a Scythe. What is your thinking there?

The stock fan is loud... I can't recall the fans I installed on it but I thinkl they were some Compusa Silenx fans I had laying around.

As for water... summers here reach ambients of 31C (85F) or more on average with spells of 35C or more running for days straight sometimes. I was never able to properly OC my old 965BE past 3.8Ghz but even then, I was running into temps close to 60C on the CPU. I finally opted to just leave the 965BE at stock speeds.

Now I have the 1090T and I want to make it last as well as try and squeeze as much out of it. On air I have FINALLY reached 4 Ghz stable of course it's been cold here (24C/76F). I want to see how much more I can get so I decided on water cooling it. I plan on getting back to online gaming so I want no excuses. I will keep the FRIO though as my trusted backup. I will admit that based on my experience with the 1090T so far, it may just be that I got a bad 965BE to begin with, who knows.

The Scythe is better. When I bought this Xigmatek it was $20 shipped AR. The Scythe at that time was $50 shipped, if you could find it in stock.

Well, in the end I decided to get the Scythe because I needed the $30 to get some cables I've been needing (my video cables are too short). I'll post when I get it to let you all know what I think.
