I'm looking for a great heatsink and fan like the NH-D14 but the main issues I have with it are its color. I just hate the beigeish red color scheme. Are there any heatsinks that perform similarly to the NH-D14? So far it is the best one I have seen. A lesser price point would be nice too but I'm okay with the 90$ price tag if need be.
Hyper212 is cheap, can have almost any 120mm fans bolted to it, and perform quite well. I think price/performance it's the best out there. There are many others out there though. Just google up best 1155 air cooling and see what you find.
The Phanteks PH-TC14PE it's available in several colors, the performance is on par if not better than the NH-D14 from what I was able to gather from reviews with the Phanteks being quieter at the same cooling performance.
I just stumbled upon those too and they look and I'd love to buy them. Would they fit in a Haf x case with g skill ripjaws x series ram though? All the reviews I see say they are monstrous even for larger cases.
