Hello Guys,

I have an NZXT Phantom Full tower case with 16GB Corsair Vengeance Memory Kit. I am looking for an Air cooler Heatsink which would fit with my Vengeance memory. I have the side panel 200 mm fan installed as well. Please recommend a few air coolers to me so that I can buy it and install it on my CPU. I tried looking for some but was unable to as I cannot find any air cooler which would fit with the Vengeance RAM and the side panel 200 mm fan with it. Please help me out with this.

This guy has a noctua nh-dh14 installed with dual fans....


Noctua dimensions:


i am quite confident the space in your case will allow you to have a noctua with single fan! :) 

If not noctua, u can always go with liquid cooling or a Hyper 212+!





And the Hyper Tx-3


Cheers!

Well the noctua is 165mm in height. The maximum height allowed for fitting the cooler with the side panel 200mm fan is 159mm I believe. The Hyper 212 plus will not fit with Vengeance RAM as the RAM is too high. I will have to slide the fans upwards, If I do, it will touch the 200mm fan. Any othr suggestions

Besides this,

Hyper212+ is the best bang for buck! :)

Why don't you consider a liquid cooling setup??

Well. I think I may have to go for the H100 then. Thats the only one which will fit with my Vengeance memory and the side panel 200mm fan. Although I need to slant the RAD a little bit towards the outer side If I have to install the fans because of the taller memory.

The side fan could potentially be bad. Had the phantom 410. I had a side case fan blowing in cool air directly onto my GPU. That side fan helps keep my GPU three degrees cooler during bench marking. I'd recommend you conduct a test to see if it helps or hurts your set up.

Secondly, removing the 200mm fan allows you to accommodate a variety of heat sinks.

So it'll be wise to remove the fan and install a cooler instead...

Finally I found the cooler which fits on the Phantom full tower with the Vengeance Ram. Its the Zalman CNPS9900 NT. Check the below link for the pics:

is it a good cooler. Should I get it?

Well, I sure will. I was wondering, how much of a performance difference would occur between the Zalman CNPS9900 NT and the COrsair H100. Is that really good.

The H100 obviously has a higher hand.. Although not that much.. probably 2-3 degrees..

Considering the noise, we all know corsair H series has high noise issues when functioning at max speed
