More about : fan phenom 1090t we1shcake October 29, 2011 9:34:43 PM u overclocking, if yes u want a high end thing such as the noctua d14, if youre not a lwer end cooler such as the freezer 13 pro, or the hyper 212 would do well while being much cheaper Rob423 October 29, 2011 11:12:20 PM That Noctua D14 is MASSIVE!! yea I've noticed alot of people were running that... I'm not really certain whether i want to OC yet. still looking into AMD or Intel. My 3 previous systems were AMD.. I would like to stay loyal... but alot of the reviews around point to the i5 or i7 especially for gaming.

I'm picky with looks and color schemes lol and Lets be honest, the D14 isn't attractive at all lol. Also I just wanted to make sure i have enough room in my case. I am going with the lancool k62 lian li, i really like this case and i don't want to switch. The next thing i'm looking at is if my video card/cards will have an issue fitting in the case. I was thinking of sli 560 ti, or just one gtx 580 but I am concerned with the length. beenthere a b à CPUs October 30, 2011 4:17:04 PM Right now I think the Xigmatek Aegir 128264 is one of the better top five AMD CPU HSFs as it uses new tech and only needs one relatively quiet fan to achieve excellent cooling results and it's only $70 so a decent value too. Rob423 October 30, 2011 4:22:30 PM yea, thats a nice looking HSF also BeenThere. Any idea if people MOD the noctua and swop out the fans or paint the fans? we1shcake October 30, 2011 5:58:14 PM you could swap out the fans but i dont think painting them would be a good idea, Rob423 October 30, 2011 6:03:02 PM Yea i probably wouldn't even bother. With internal blue LED's i don't think it's gonna be much of a problem. Just a thought. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Phenom II x4 970 or x6 1090t ?
