    ^+1.. The best (both on cooling and silence) without a doubt.. Its huge however.. Won't fit every case and will hinder with memory modules which have tall heat spreaders.. That is where the H70 has the advantage.. Great cooling performance at a smaller installation footprint.. But its comparatively more noisy..
  2. Thermalright silver arrow beats the nd 14 by a minor margin the h70 is prob top 5 but not the best

    Has to be the best response to the H70 vs. D14 question that I've seen
  4. I have the D-14 and it is nothing short of amazing! I strongly recommend it. my 930 runs 36C idle and 68C prime load at 4.3GHZ 1.3v

    Just keep in mind it weighs about 2 lbs and is gigantic.. you will noth be able to use ram with a hug heatsink. i can say the mushkin redlines will fit under it
  5. would this fit in a coolermaster storm scout case
  6. yes it should fit without issue.. it is about the same width as my haf 922
  7. i have two side case fans (coolermaster r4s)would i still be able to keep them with this cooler installed?coolermaster site says i can have up to 165 mm cooler to keep the fans
  8. What is the extent of overclock you are planning to employ on your i7 930.? It'll be good if you could specify your entire system specs..
  9. there will be no overclocking
    core i7 930 or 950
    asus p6x58d premium
    corsair 3 x 2gb dominator
    corsair ax850
    geforce gtx 460 1 gb
    coolermaster storm scout case
    rosewill media card reader
    samsung f3 1 tb hdd
    windows 7 ultimate
    lg blu ray burner
    asus dvd rw burner
    samsung 24 inch monitor
    logitech mouse and keyboard
  10. the d-14 is 160mm you will have 5mm clearance.. may I ask why you want the best cooler if you don't plan to overclock? or are you planning to later on?
  11. ^+1...

    No overclocking, stick with the stock cooler with the i7 930/950.
  12. i like my systems to run at their best performance,cooling,rendering,encoding,etc.i dont like to take chances.i was taught to do it right the first time.a little overbuilding doesnt hurt lol
  13. If you are not going to overclock then might as well opt for a cooler to add some bling to your setup.. Check out the Zalman CNPS9700 LED for that matter..
  14. is there one similar with a red led
  15. You can check out the Thermaltake SpinQ VT for the red led effect.. Its not the best cooler out there but since you are not gonna bother with overclocking, it'll be quite efficient.. It looks distinctively cool though..
  16. will the hyper 212 with 2 coolermaster r4 red led fans fit in the storm scout with the side fans still installed?
  17. yes the hyper 212+ is much smaller than the d-14
