Should I return my Frio OCK?

Hello!

I recently purchased a Frio OCK for my i5 2500K machine.

I haven't installed it yet and I have time to make a return later today.

What I'm wondering is if I should return it and get something else.

The cooler should be able to clear ram enough for me to use corsair vengeance rams on a P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 mother board.

I'm using a NZXT Phamtom full case, so room isn't much of an issue.

Please help quick!!!

It is noisy and I think the CM V6GT would work better and looks better but I think there are better choices like the Megahalems and the VenX or just go for a Hyper 212+ evo or the Hyper 612. Anyone of those would provide enough cooling for you CPU.

Thanks! I looked for a new CPU cooler while I was there thanks to yoru post.

I ended up getting the Corsair H100. It's a bit overkill, but meh.

The V6GT and Frio are more or less identical in cooling performance and noise level btw.

@ davcon Yeah I just like the looks of the V6 better.

@ jin 84 well the h series of corsair has really worked well. Congrats on your purchase
