New build question.... Tags: Heatsinks Cooling Overclocking Product Last response: July 29, 2009 3:38 PM in Overclocking Share Hockeyguyinoc July 28, 2009 5:56:20 PM I've looked at a million sites for what cooler to use and I have come up with two that I'm thinking about going with but maybe one won't work with my setup or there is a better air cooling solution. Specs: CPU-i7 920 OC'd to 3.6ghz Mobo-Asus P6T Deluxe v.2 Memory-Corsair Dominator 3x2gb DDR3-1600 Case-Antec Three Hundred GPU-BFG Nvidia 275 GTX OC PSU-Corsair 620HX HD-2xSeagate 500gb 7200.12 raid 0 1xSeagate 1tb 7200.12 Cooling Options: Thermalright IFX-14 with 3xScythe SY1225SL12M Prolimatech Megahelms with 2xScythe SY1225SL12M TIM: G751 Shin-Etsu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 1-Will either be too heavy for the board? 2-Case Fit? 3-Memory Fit Issue?

Get the answer overshocked a b K Overclocking July 28, 2009 9:12:08 PM ^ yes i would, it gives the most bang for the buck. But if you dont mind the cost i would go for the megahalem. I just answerd this question like 10 seconds ago...LOL check it out: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253441-29-sunbeam-cor... overshocked a b K Overclocking July 28, 2009 9:12:51 PM I will copy/paste my exact answer from that ^ thread: Yes the megahalem is better but the CCF is alot better bang for the buck and you will only see 1-2c difference. And there is a number of mods that you can do to the CCF that will lower the temps about 8 degrees. Hockeyguyinoc July 28, 2009 10:04:04 PM What mods I'm all over the cheaper for about the same performance. overshocked a b K Overclocking July 28, 2009 10:11:17 PM Whew... there are quite a few mods. 1. Lapp your heatsink and your cooler.(this will drop the temps alot) 2. Make a "cover" over the heatsink to direct the airflow from the fan so it goes through the heatsink and not out the sides. 3. Add i fan on the other side. Hockeyguyinoc July 29, 2009 3:38:58 PM Couldn't I do the same an obtain better results on the Megahelm? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
