Hi i was wondering if any of you had any info on the best cooler to get for my setup?
INTEL CORE i5 750
8G,G.SKILL RIPJAWS 1600
XFX HD 6850 1GB
2X2TB CAVIAR GREEN
CORSAIR VX 450 PSU
NZXT GAMMA CASE
Now i was looking at the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus and the Corsair Air Series A70 but wanted to be sure that they would fit into my case, looking at some pics they look like they would overhang the ram slots any help would be appreciated and also any other ideas on the cooling front too, thanks
Hi thanks for the quick reply, yes my budget is about £40 and when i said over hang the slot, i meant as in not being able to have a stick in the end socket, are you saying it wont affect it?
It really does depend on the size/dimensions of the cooler and the motherboard you have, the only way to be sure is to measure the mobo space between the cpu and the first slot, but to answer your last question directly, yes you could easily lose the last slot, and by lose I mean NOT be able to have a stick of ram in it...
You'll be fine with either cooler and Ripjaws.
I own both those coolers and have them mounted on 1156 boards with 4 sticks of Ripjaws.
All you'll have to do is slide the dimm side fan up a tad.
Those coolers will fit in your case too.
Worst scenario is you might have to lose the side fan.
