Solved i7 870 Cooler Tags: Cooling Intel i7 CPUs Motherboards Last response: December 26, 2013 11:09 AM in CPUs Share Marauder47 December 26, 2013 10:57:59 AM I am looking at two different coolers for my i7 870 as my current one is not cutting it. The one I am interested in is this(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). I was wondering what the big difference is between the 120V and the 120XL. I am also worried about having the slots to power this new cooler. Will the 120V/120XL use just the pins on the motherboard, or will I need an additional power connection on top of the ones on the motherboard. Thanks in advance!

You will only need the CPU and COP_OPT fan headers on the motherboard. No extra power connections are necessary Reply to 2x4b Ask the community Post an answer Related resources : ForumSolvedBest CPU cooler for core i7 870 ForumSolvedi7 -870 vs FX 6300 ForumSolvedGTX 770 or 780 or just wait till 8xx series (I7 870 CPU) ForumSolvedi7 870: Overclocking vs. Upgrade ForumSolvedintel i7 870 without graphic card ForumSolvedi3 550 to i7 870 ForumSolvedUpgrade to an i7 870 worthwhile?
