Cooling recs for I7 3930K Asus P9X79
Jun 5, 2012, 2:52 AM
Hey all I am looking for cooling ideas for my CPU. The setup will be a I7-3930K on a Asus P9X79 Pro with all memory slots taken up by Ripjaws Z series. Right now I am looking at:
Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler $86, I was wondering if the price is worth it or should I try a liquid cooling rig like CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler.
I will take any recs, I am just worried about space. I think I prefer air cooling because liquid seems like more maintanace.
Thank you for the help.

First off, the corsair H series isn't real watercooling.
