Im thinking about going to Air cooling...if reasonable

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
ok so i have the core i7-950 at stock clocks (3.07ghz)
sitting in the sabertooth x58 motherboard


ok with the eco advance liquid cooling i get around 38-41'c cpu temps...
and running prime95 for like 10mins and it jumps to 50-52'c and im sure it would go up more if i let it run longer i know i heard things about it not beeing the best but i was expecting a lil bit better cooling from this then AIR

so i was thinking of going AIR would the CM v8 lower my temps better this thing from what i read?

whats your budget? I personally don't like CM coolers.

No it wouldn't be. You would have to go high end, something like a Silver Arrow or a DH14. I still like Megahalems and Yates.

+1. The V series are expensive and average performing.

Noctua NH-D14 as long as your ram is not higher than 44 mmm.

Megahalmes is the way to go!

I have the Megahalems and a 950. I get virtually the same temps as you at stock clocks. Maybe 3 degrees worse at most.

Coolermaster V8 and V10 suck compared to other high end air coolers. Just do some google searches for air cooler comparison tests and see for yourself. D14 and Silver Arrow are king. Mugen II, Megahalems, Venomous X are also top performers. I'm sure missing some others. There are plenty of coolers that blow away the V8. The V10 is a joke.

Just so you know all in one liquid coolers like the Eco or Corsair H50/H70 aren't real water cooling setups. They don't have the radiator size or flow rate to really take advantage of water cooling's potential.

The only way to make sure you'll get better performance is to get an Archon and buy an extra TY-140 fan. With your case you have room for the 170mm tall fin stack.

They are the home theater in a box solution to the hifi audio solution in terms of WC cooling loops. Sure they don't have the capacity to expel the heat output of overclocked cpu, gpu's, psu etc. but they do have they ability to cool modern cpu's better than any air solution given comparable fans.

I run the CoolIt Vantage with 2 sick fans in push/pull which let me run my 930 at 4.20 ghz @ 1.312v-- 32c idle 60c load. No it is not a custom loop, but it DOES do a GREAT job at cooling my cpu. Better than any air cooler I have seen.

Don't dismiss the eco just yet. I'd try some nice YL's in push/pull config and see how it works.

These are my fans btw: http://www.mpja.com/prodinfo.asp?number=18015+FN

How is it then that most of these all in one kits are beaten by top end air coolers?
