CPU fan cooler! SILENT - Page 2

post #11 of 15
i had the same thing with my 1055t so i bought thermaltake Contac29 and yes it was WAY better than stock (noise level and cooling performance even with 1 fan only)

i dont know much about cooling (this one is my first) so the only advice that i will give you is to look carefully about the installing method of the cooler cause in my Contac29 i had to install it with 90 degree rotation as the only way on AMD sockets unlike on Intel........... so pay some attention about this point

Not sure about USA, but here in Europe:

Corsair H70 -> 90€
Noctua NH-D14 -> 70€


Considering the following:

- Noctua is A LOT quieter by default than H70 (Noctua is 6ºC-8ºC cooler than H70)
- Noctua is A LOT cooler than the H70 by default (The Noctua is inaudible)
- Noctua is 20€ cheaper

Why would you even buy an H70?

I honestly don't recommend the H50/H70's at all, I've had them, and I will never buy them again, I'd rather take those air coolers mentioned above which are a lot cheaper and a lot quieter.

H50 I can agree with you, that, I would never buy them again either.

One thing in my experience, I'm tired of putting a heavy brick hanging in my rig. Another thing is the case airflow.

I'm not saying anything bad about D14 and I'm not telling him to buy H70 either. All I'm saying is H70 is not silent when you use the stock fans.

6c-8c cooler than H70? I doubt that. I'd say it all depends on your Overclock settings, case airflow, ambient/room temps and cable management.

If you want a clean looking case and don't like huge coolers, sure the H70 is a good buy, but make sure you replace the fans with something like Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM fans else it's going to be loud as hell

If you buy a pair of Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM it's a great cooler, but the price is kinda high for what it has to offer...

I have better fans than Gentle Typhoons(at least based on my preference). I hate sleeve fans - wonder how long they will last compare to fluid dynamic fans - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185005


That's my point, quiet, clean, cool, long lasting FDB fans.

Whoops... am off to work.

If your RAM is low profile, the obvious best choice is the Silver Arrow. You can get it at Directron and other places for $75, and it comes with two TY-140 fans, the best quiet fans in existence. They are PWM so your MB can control them.

If your RAM is higher profile (like G.Skill Ripjaws, 44mm tall) you can get a Silver Arrow and mount the two TY-140's in center and pull, but to get best performance you will need a 120mm push fan, something like an Enermax Cluster (very quiet, pushes mild amount of air; see item 1 in my sig) or a Slip Stream medium PWM (a good performer and not very loud at 1200-1300 rpm) or a Coolink SWiF2-120P (high performance, $9.99 at SVC.com).

Or with tall RAM heatsinks you can go with a Noctua NH-D14, which cools the same as a Silver Arrow but is 3dB louder. The fans are Voltage-controlled, though, so you would need a Gigabyte mb or a fan controller to control the fans. Given the $90 price of the D14, though, you're better off with the SA and just buy a 120mm fan. But check compatibilities on mfr websites before you buy.
