Solved I7-3770K and Noctua NH-D14 Tags: Heatsinks Overclocking Intel i7 Last response: September 1, 2012 3:49 AM in Overclocking Share excella1221 August 31, 2012 1:32:08 PM Can someone please give me an estimate how far on overclocking i7-3770K can you get with the Noctua NH-D14? I'm aiming for at least 4.5GHz. Also, would one of these be good alternatives? Cooler Master Hyper 412 Slim Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM Deepcool Tiger Shark Or should I just go ahead and buy a Corsair H60? Although I really prefer air cooling. My board is an Asrock z77 Extreme4 btw, if it matters. EDIT: The Hyper 212 EVO isn't available on my local store, so I didn't include it.
