Hey, I purchased a new PC and ordered it with a H60, to make a long story short what OC I can get with the H60 with safe temps?
What OC I can get with the Noctua NH-D14 with safe temps? Which is better? Should I call the store I ordered the PC from and ask them to change from H60 to Noctua? My case is a Sharkoon Vaya Value White!
-Thanks in advance!

Ask the store guys to change the cooler to Noctua. Trust me, all the high end air coolers out there (Silver arrow, NH-D14, Phanteks) perform very similar to the H100. So the Noctua beats the H60. I have had experiences with closed loop water coolers and now i have the silver arrow which is similar to the Noctua. Closed loop water coolers are loud but the air coolers are not. Get it without having any second thoughts.

OK, I can't tell them to upgrade anymore! How hard is't to remove a H60 and install a Noctua?

Why the silver arrow? It's a very good cooler, but the above would seem to suggest that coolers like the Tower 120 Extreme are better.
