1155 mATX + 2500k + Low Profile Cooler?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This build is a mATX Asus P9P67-M, with a 2500K, in a NZXT Vulcan case. Not a lot of room, and an H50 isn't going to fit comfortably at all with a longer videocard (so I've heard anyway). This needs to be around $50 or less, and all I've found so far that actually fits in this case is a GeminII S. Does anyone have any other recommendations? If I have to stick with the GeminII S, whats a better fan to shove on there?

For the price, the GeminII S is probably your best bet. You could put some GT's on it probably, but in all honesty the R4 it comes with will do the job. I been using R4's on my OCs and it works just fine. They just can get a bit loud is all.

The Vulcan has 2x120mm fans at the top doesn't it? Can't you just place the H50 up the top - even if it means sacrificing the other 120mm fan??

I've read that the H50 doesn't fit on the top spots, and only fits at the front intake 120mm spot. The problem with the front slot is that it really pulls the tubing tight and obstructs the proper seating of longer videocards

XIGMATEK Durin D982

I would stick with the GeminII S and get a Scythe or a Gentle typhoon. If you're not happy with that the Durin would be your best alternative.

I believe CoolIT have a 90mm version of the Eco which you could stick on the rear exhaust!

I believe you can only buy it from the coolit site directly
http://www.coolitsystems.com/
You'll need to register first i think!

Might be an idea to join their forum and ask a question or two!

Looked everywhere but couldn't find you a link - sorry
