CPU Cooler - need expert advise

Hi All,

I am looking for a QUIET cooler that can handle an i7 4770k. The chip might be overclocked at a later date, when I grow some confidence (balls) and courage.

Please let me know your thoughts on the below and your preference...

Dark Rock 2 – CPU Cooler

Noctua NH-C14 Hyper212 EVO

Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK 68.5 CFM CPU Cooler

Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 CPU Cooler

I am really hoping to narrow this list down to 1 or 2 options. Perhaps you have better suggestions?

    Thanks Sosofm
    This Noctua cooler you suggested keeps coming up again and again from users here as being very reliable. I think it also has a 6 year warranty which is nuts.
  3. Yes they have 6 year warranty. And from any CPU coolers producers Noctua was they reference in cooling and quiet.
  4. The Hyper212 EVO is really a good option
