is it possible to hit 4ghz on stock cooler?
Please guys ask the right question - clearly.

First of all what do you mean by "stock cooler". I made a "leap of faith" that you were talking about the HSF that comes with AMD CPU's for example.

If not, please tell us what you mean.

If you have a question about whether or not the Noctua NH-D14 can cool, legitimately cool over extended runs, it might be better to start your own thread. From what I read and I read probably more than most, the Noctua is your best bet. Pseudo Liquid Cooling units like the Corsair H-50 and its iterations are no match and should be considered toys. (Corsair is, however, one of the very finest companies out there, second to none!)

Other units recommended because they fit over Corsair Dominator and GSkill will probably do OK. But the Noctua is a Beast; it's not cute and it's not pretty - but neither are the NFL linemen who protect Peyton Manning.

Really want to know. Please feel free to post your HSF questions in the proper thread. This is a motherboard thread.

(Note: I mistakenly posted a similar question in what I thought was the relevant thread, when I first joined OCN, and got a rap on the knuckles from an Admin for Thread Hijacking. Like you, I sure thought I had done nothing wrong at the time.)

Im new here and when i said "can i hit 4ghz on stock cooler" by stock i mean the piece of junk that came with the CPU from AMD. If the answer is no, What cooler will fit over or next to my ram without blocking my corsair dominator gt sticks? Price isnt an issue really.. ive considered a single loop watercooling for the cpu. Realistically i just want 4-4.5ghz stable ?

i like the Zalman 9900max because it fits and it does a good job of cooling
they make a blue one and a red one

Thanks for the response.. is the the best option for cooling that will fit?( without blocking the ram..) thanks again.

Absolutely, the Noctua will NOT FIT over RAM with heatsinks (a cliche gimmick in my opinion, but as they say "opinions are like ...").

Question is What Do You Really Want To Cool? Your RAM or the CPU?

Kind of a rhetorical question and one you will need to make yourself. Best of luck!

Yes it will, you just have to remove the heatsink.

Corsair Dominator DDR3 modules can be used if the top heatspreader is removed as shown



I only had to remove one heatsink, the other one fit just fine.

Not with the stock cooler, not even close.

I hit 4.5GHZ stable with the Titan Fenir Evo Cooler and Deltas in Push/Pull, (which is less cooling than the Noctua NH-D14 with the same fans) but temps were high with no head room under full load. Not something you want to run 24/7 without better cooling. So I ran it at 4GHZ, much better temps on AIR.

Now every chip is different, so even with a custom water cooling loop there is NO guarantee that you will even get to 4GHZ, keep that in mind.

I currently run the RASA 750 RS360 watercooling with 6x GT AP-15s in push pull. At 4.5GHZ my max temps are 38C under full load.

Having said all that, start your own thread in the proper section like others have said

Aw Helsinki Finland guys, I posted that query way back when we were all young, i.e. should I remove my "cutesy" heatsinks from my GSkills and the prevailing and I believe intelligent thought at the time was, "Only if you want to destroy them!"

If you want to OC your CPU to 4.0 GHz. (very easy these days ALTHOUGH it would sure be nice to know WHAT CPU you're talking about), then why in the world are you interested in RAM with heatsinks that are about "as useless at teets on a bull"? Yes, I know. They are cute.

Advice:

Do your homework (Some folks like to inflate themselves and call it "research") on HSF and make a decision. I did mine and I made my decision, backed up with multiple purchases of the Corsair X3 RAM and the Noctua HSF.

Where did I learn about the Noctua NH-D14? Well, I hung out on the appropriate OCN thread and asked a whole bunch of PITA questions. And everyone on that thread recommended the same thing ...

Read everything I could find on other OC forums and then all the reviews on Tiger Direct, NewEgg and Amazon.com. Paid particular attention to the problems folks were having installing their HSF.

Bought a whole bunch of other "oh so cute" HSF's as well (Experience is an expensive teacher). They all lie in the back room, which I now call the GraveYard.

Suggestion: Clarity of thought and Explicit Statement of Needs and Goals seems to be lacking these days on OCN. It never used to be that way.
