Noctua NH-D14 vs. Corsair Hydro H60

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.
  2. for corsair h60. i bet you already knew that it was noisy.... i owned it once, and just for 1 week i swapped my h60 with 212 evo for better performance and less noise

    just my 0.02 someone can correct me for a better setup
  3. OK, I can't tell them to upgrade anymore! How hard is't to remove a H60 and install a Noctua?
  4. yesss Noctua NH-D14 is top tier A air cooler.....

    plus it has some big muscle looks :)

    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.
