3770K - Maximus V Extreme - Which CPU HeatSync/Fan? [OC]

Guys,
I'm getting the Maximus V Extreme and I already have the 3770K. Which CPU thermal/cooler/fan will be the best if I want to OC upto say.. 4.7Ghz? or 5? :D

I have a 700w PSU and a Corsair Carbide 500r (4 fans included, 3 140mm, 1 200mm I think).

:)

  1. Bump!
  2. Don't bump.


    Do you have a budget?


    If you want to hit 4.5ghz+ You're going to need a custom watercooling loop.

    Sorry! I have to order in some time so needed help quick.

    How much would that cost?

    Will that be enough?
  5. Rasa kit is the best option.
  6. Thanks regina, muffin.

    Anything below 100$?
  7. And anything besides water cooling? Too complicated for me I guess.

    Great! I can get the noctua one. I hope it won't block my RAM slot on PCI-E slot?

    Also, how is the Xigmatec Prime SD1484?

    If you don't have low profile ram it might not work and no Xigmatec Prime is not very good

    +1 but i am not sure he wants to make sure it won't block his RAM slot on PCI-E slot?

    Just remove the first fan to access the RAM slot.


    The whole point is just to install and let it go, not to keep tweaking around and reinstalling and disassembling parts.

    I have this RAM (8x2) and the same (4x2), taking up all 4 ram slots (24gb), will the Phantek fan interrupt?

  19. What case do you have?
  20. Great! I'll get the Phanteks one!

    Thanks a lot guys! I wish I could select two best answers for you both haha

    Corsair Carbide 500R
  22. Doh, right.... :P

    I'm not sure if your motherboard can fit inside of your case.

    I asked someone in the chassis/cases section and he said it will! And I think it will, it's a huge case. Not at all like a mid tower. Its like a hybrid haha.
  24. EATX is slightly wider than ATX, so you won't have that much room.

    But, the Phanteks will fit ;)

    what do you think Regina? will the maximus v extreme fit in my case?

    Woohooo!

    Okay so finally, is the Noctua better or Phanteks?
  28. actually according to the specs it won't the 500R only supports Micro ATX / ATX the maximus v extreme is a EATX so if it will fit it's not suppose to hahaha

    well he might be wrong because according to CORSAIR 500R specs that motherboard will NOT fit. :(
  31. I think you misunderstood him he said the Phanteks cpu cooler will fit your case

    EATX has the same mounting holes as ATX, but it is just slightly wider.


    Found it in the 500R club ;)




    That's a Rampage III Extreme (EATX), the predecsor the X79 Rampage Extreme.
