The past couple weeks ive been kind of stuck on what I want to get. My 212+ is still doing fine but I would like upgrade to some more efficient cooling. For water cooling I've been looking at the h80i, but have read a lot of bad things about it and I'm think of getting something like the h60. I'm also been starting to lean on air cooling still, and was thinking about the Noctua nh-d14 as my choice. Or any other ones that you guys may know of that are good as well.
1| for watercooling you may want to hold that thought and go for a real loop instead of shelling out on a unit that performs on par with an air cooler. The range can easily be bridged with a cheap air cooler.
2| Nothing beats a Noctua NH D14 or the silver arrow, so you know your bar has been set with these two coolers.
My 2 cents mate.
If you're interested in watercooling might want to:
1| go over the watercooling sticky in my sig
2| go over the watercooling gallery and build logs thread for some inspiration on layouts and the absolute last advice is taking time to read through the sticky. All the answers are there.
Wow I have mine at 4ghz at a offset of -0.070 and I get about 58-62C is the highest I've seen it go. I think I might be looking into picking up the noctua. I see it has the 120 and 140 fan on it, should I pick up another 120 or 140 to fill the last spot?
