Which CPU Cooler fits LGA 1155 with RAM Cooler installed?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The title says it all. Possibly one I do not need to lap..

For instance, I found these to be adequate if no fans installed, just one fan installed, or no additional fan installed depending on the model:
  1. Prolimatech megahalem
  2. Prolimatech Armageddon
  3. Thermalright Venomous-X
  4. Thermalright HR-01 PLUS
  5. Thermaltake ISGC-200
  6. Thermolab BARAM2010

Any missing quality Cooler? Which one do you consider more appropriate?

My specific motherboard is GA-P67A-UD5 and RAM cooler is G.Skill Turbulence II.

Thank you in advance!

Which RAM cooler? Individual heatsinks or one of the Corsair fan coolers. And on what mobo? (because certain boards have 2, 4, 6 slots or slots are placed further, closer, perpendicular, etc)

EDIT: Since it's an 1156, It has 4 slots, I assume to the right of the socket, and I assume you are talking about a corsair cooler since individual sinks are not that popular. The Megahalem will work, but personally, I would suggest the ThermalRight HR01, since it can easily get good temps with no fans. It supports 1156.

Thank you for your advice, but is it good enough? Just wondering because of its cheap price.. (I know that not every cheap product is bad, but you know.. just to be sure )

One of my friends at another forums runs his (Xeon E3110) rig on one fan at 3.8GHz with the HR01 and he says his temps are fine. So I would then assume it's a decent cooler. Plus, he's a heatsink whore. I think he owned a new one at least every week for a while...and finally settled on the HR01 xD

Google up some reviews for the Megahalem vs the HR01.

I see. It is the "PLUS" model, and I might need to buy the accessories as well..

For the moment, I will be including your suggestion and Thermolab BARAM2010 on the list.
