Solved

I need a stock 1155 cooler!

So I just traded a amd phenom ii 955 for an i5 2500k but I had to trade my noctua nh-d14 with it too . At the moment I am short on cash so I can't buy a decent cooler yet and don't wanna go cheap with a hyper 212 ( not saying it's bad, just want better!) So if any of you have a stock 1155 cooler laying around, I'll pay you 10$ for it (including shipping, that's how much it's worth really) I am in the US too so it should be a lot easier and cheaper to ship.

Thanks!

P.S I couldn't find a wanted section I could post in, but if there is, could any of you admins move it there? Haha thanks.

  1. Just look on your local craigslist. This is a tech forum, not a place to post want ads ;)
  2. I'm confused as to why you are buying a stock cooler for 10 but don't want to spend 20 and get something you can OC with... you do have a 2500k after all.
  3. Yeah I have been looking on craigslist but I live in tw middle of nowhere so there aren't many builders :(

    And the reason I posted here was because I am guessing most of you have one laying around. It is just temporary until I can buy another noctua or an h100. Like I said, I don't wanna go cheap! It'll cost me more in the end anyways.


    And I can overclock on stock cooler, i've gotten up to 4.1-4.2 ghz stable before, when I had my first one.

    So, what are you wanting to save up for? another nh-d14? Why not try out the 212? You might end up being satisfied and not need to spend ~$80-$90

    My 2500k @ 4.6 with my 212+ stays around 70C under prime95 load
  6. Yeah I was thinking about getting another noctua nh-d14, just because it is sooo quite and runs like a champ. It kept my amd cpu below or around 40c at all times. But I've also heard great things from the 212+. I May give it a shot, but right now I can seriously only spend 10-15$. I just saw a pretty decent cooler on newegg so I might buy that to hold me off for a couple of days, maybe a week or two.

    alright, if all you need is a quick fix, this would do fine:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835226047
  8. Yup, that's the one I was looking at too. Looks pretty decent to me! I'll buy it tonight once I get home.

    So, what would you recommend, H100 or NH-d14?
  9. For the price, NH-D14.

    You save ~$20 and if you have space in your case, NH-D14 performs as well or better than closed loop systems.
  10. Alright cool. Thanks guys for your replies!
