Got ASUS P8P67 with i7 2600K unlocked processor, in a case with 1 intake fan on side and one in front, exhaust out rear and 2 on top. All fans are 72cfm at 14dbs. Power supply intake is on bottom. Got GeForce 6850 graphics card and OCZ RevoDrive X2 PCI-Express SSD 240 GB. I am looking for recommendation on super quiet CPU cooler. Any ideas?
I have one of these and it's dead quiet 19db for real,i had to check if the fan was spinning for the first week occasionally.
Comes with Chillfactor II paste which is better then AS5.
It's 160mm tall and fits Corsair Dominators 52mm tall all dimms filled.
It may not be the "best cooler" out there but $80+ coolers for SB cpu's are a waste of money imo.
Found deal on Ebay for a Zalman CNPS10X Quiet 120mm Fan CPU Cooler if fan is not quiet enough I will replace it with one similar to the others in the case. waiting patiently for delivery. Thaqnk you all for your help!
If it wasn't for my tall ram heatsinks i'd get the Noctua NH-D14. So keep this in mind, It's not always what's the best it's what fits in your case and will your heatsink hit the ram. Im using the Corsair Vengenace ram and they are tall so most heatsinks will have trouble installing 4 sticks on your motherboard, unless you are using the Prolimatech Armageddon or Thermalright Archron heatsink. But if you have normal size ram i'd go with the Noctua NH-D14 without a question. Imo the best and a very good price especially that it comes with 2 high quality fans.
