Scythe Ninja 3 for i7 875K

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So is my Scythe Ninja 3 good enough for overclocking i7 875K ? I'm thinking of getting Noctua DH 14 but what I rly want to know is it really worth it?

I'm planing on keeping it on 4.2 Ghz 24/7.

I recommend this, one of the best coolers you can get on that price range: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835242001

Trust me: the ninja 3, just as the ninja 2 or the mugen 2 is one of the most cost effective coolers out there. It is really good and definetly worth the money.
Obviously it pays some degrees to the best, and more expensive, coolers such as the Noctua nh-d14 wich are on another league......

so at the end: YES it's more than enough for a good overclock. But still I don't know if it will be enough for a 4.2ghz overclock 24/7........ if you have the money and space is not a problem go with the Noctua, you'll have lower temperature.

I have the Mugen2 on a 870. I got a screaming deal on it, so I figured what the hell?

I got lucky with a good overclocking chip. But, it runs hot. I'm peaking 85deg w/ LinX at just a 4.0ghz using all the tricks (3x 1850 rpm gentle typhoons as case fans, Yate Loons Push/Pull). At just 1.28x volts.

Instead of getting a Ninja now, going for 4.2ghz, and having to buy a Noctua D14 later, just get the D14 now.
