i7 970 need help cpu cooling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well as the thread title says I’ll be replacing my i7 920 for a 970 soon and needing some suggestions on type of cpu fan I should purchase since right now on the 920 I’ve got the coolmaster V8 on it.

For the 970 I was thinking of going for the silver arrow unless anyone might suggest something else im also worried about clearing, my mobo is the EVGA X58 and case is the thermaltake armor mx.

If youre replacing it, whats wrong with the V8? Isnt that already a really good cooler? The H50 or H70 are really great but if youre gonna upgrade why dont you wait until the 2011 pins come out?

well I'm doing the upgrade since the 970 i got for free so might as well use it, and the 920 will be going as my media server so I'll keep the v8 on it. so that's why I'm asking for advice unless the silver arrow is good enough for the 970
