Recommandations on cooler for new setup?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Already using a ven-x in old system. Besides that or a megahalems in this price range is there other recommendations i should consider? SA and the nh d-14 look huge and pricing on those is a bit more.

If I were you Id try and H50 or H70 only bc they are pretty cheap and can give you great all around temps. When room temp is high the H50 will beat the Venomous X (I own both).

I'm not sure you'll see a significant enough decrease in temperatures to justify the new cooler.

Here's a review that has the Venomous X, Silver Arrow, and NH-D14 (amongst others).

Is this to replace your Venomous X or for a new system?

It's for the i5 2500k setup so a different system. Just seeing if there are other HS that i can consider.

I'm currently also checking out the h50 now since bb has it for 60+tax. The h70 looks to cost more than the SA or d-14.

Ah, I see.

Out of your options I'd recommend the Prolimatech Megahalem. Cools like a champ, has the best mounting system I've ever seen, has a reasonable footprint, and when paired with a Gentle Typhoon AP-14 cools like a champ at a very low noise footprint.

Corsair H50 or 70, cools my slightly OC'd Q6600 really well!
That and with the new thermal design, the new 2500k it will cool like its in a freezer

Curious, what's the pump noise like on your H50? I had one for awhile but couldn't stand the noise of the pump. But I'm a bit sensitive to noise and run quiet case fans, haha.

Yeah i'd like to know that also. Is there noticeable noise from a h50 at all if i did p/p ap-15's? Going with as quiet setup as i can get.
