V6gt/v8/212+

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey, first time poster here so sorry if this is in the wrong place.
By the end of this week I'm looking to replace my stock fan of my cpu to either a cm v6gt/v8/212+, I have the money for any of them but I want something that will fit my matx motherboard without obstructing any ram slots and such. I'll put up some pictures in about an hour or so. There's an extremely tight fit between my current stock cooler and my graphics card which is what has me worried.

Specs:
Gigabyte h55m-usb3 mATX
Gigabyte 9800gt silent cell
Antec 900
i5 750 w/ stock cooler currently
8gb g.skill 1600mhz
750w casecom psu
1tb wd hdd

Those Intel Stock coolers just keep getting smaller and smaller lol. There about 25mm high (not including the fan, just the heatsink) and the 212 is roughly 130-140mm high (rough guess) so roughly about 6 times bigger

From the base of the cooler to the top of the heatpipes its 161mm.
Intel cooler is about 60mm.
It will fit in the antec900, not sure of the side fan position.

Added pictures, sorry for the extremely bad quality but I remembered my proper camera's lense was broken and had to use my ipod instead. Roughly outlined the cooler and graphics card from as much of a side angle I could take and one up higher to give you an idea. But yeah, sorry for the quality.

Right now I have a Megahalems on a Gigabyte P55M-UD2 with four stciks of Ripjaws. No issues. You can pretty much install any cooler you want.

For $34 + shipping Directron is selling a Mugen 2. It requires installing the motherboard on the cooler, but otherwise performs brilliantly, better than a V6 or a 212+.

You should worry about the airflow in your case. Antecs are not very good in that department, need your help.

^this. 212+ is a decent cooler, but at that price id go with the mugen2. it will outperform any air cooler in its price range.

the v6 gt is cooler master's most energy efficient cooler, with their best pwm fans. on an amd system the v6 gt overhangs some ram. the v8 doesnt but i think the pci speed controller thing is stupid. i wouldnt mind replacing it with one of the v6gt's fans. as for the 212+, excellent cooler, good temps.
