Air Cooler for NZXT Phantom

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.

  1. 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
  3. Besides this,

    Hyper212+ is the best bang for buck! :)

    The Hyper 212 plus will not fit with Vengeance RAM as the RAM is too high. I already told you this.

    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.
  7. 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.
  11. 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
