Aug 16, 2011, 8:26 AM
ok, So i need a new cooler as we all kmow the stock hsf fail
on sandy bridge.
i've got a choice between the 212plus and a v6....i dnt mind the price difference, and its going in a HAF 922 case.....so i assume the v6 wud look alot nicer in the case....hehe.
the case also has the optional 200mm side fan....will these fit? which is better?

The V6 is a better cooler, but comes off with a tradeoff of noise. Though I figure putting quieter fans like Gentle Typhoons on it would negate that and be pretty efficient in cooling/silence mix,

so if i buy the v6......i need to buy other fans also???
