Just finished builting my i7 920 in an Antec 300 case. Right now it has the stock intel cooler and running 2.66GHz. Next step is to buy a cooler and overclock it, hopefully somewhere around 4 GHz.
Looks for a CPU cooler that will fit in the case and is quiet. Want something that will not over croud everything in the case, I've seem people have to cut out the fans/ribs of the cooler to allow space for the memory, don't want it anywhere near that tight. Also don't want a lot of noice. I'm okay with air cooled also looked at the Corsair H50, looks clean and small.
h50 will suck at 4 ghz there are 5 coolers i seen who will easily run an i7 at 4 ghz
thermalright 1366 extreme/venomousX
or go full liquid cooling the h50 is ok for a mild clock but the new coolit systems are better
I know the prolimatech magahlm will not fit in the case, not sure about the others. I've also seem so many heatsinks that you have to cut the fins off the cooler to get it to fit or not enought space for the fans, etc. Looking for something that will not crowd the unit too much, quiet and supply enough cooling.
