Hi i'm gonna be building a new rig soon and before i go to the store i need some help working out my case airflow/cooling
my Specs are
i7 950 - planning on Ocing to 4Ghz
Corsair 6GB dominator
Crucual C300 128GB SSD
Cooler Master CM690 II advanced case
From what i've researched online, the stock fans that come with the case aren't that great so i want to buy aftermarket fans when i buy the case. Any ideas on which brand/model fans to get.
I'm either going to get the H70 cooler or the D14 depending on whats in stock. Which would be ideal for my case considering that the case is a mid tower and my ram has heat sinks built on (is it safe to remove the heatsink off of one of the RAM sticks, this is what i read people are doing with the d14).
I was looking for a heatsink that cooled the surrounding components and came across the D14. Its def one of the best coolers around but its just massive and I think a bit ugly. Anyway someone on the forum recommended the C12P which I really liked, bit cheaper, smaller but very quiet with lots of airflow and is within 5-6C of the D14 from what I've seen.
So i was getting ready to order when saw a thread about the D14 which again look pretty awesome so I'm still deciding which one to go for. This should help you -
