  1. Just get this, and you're pretty much good to go. I highly recommend it. It would be a much better buy than Hyper 212+ or 212 EVO.
    It will cool your 3770K just fine (up to 4.2GHz, temps are little bit higher at 4.4+GHz though, but it's not the cooler's fault) and it's noise is quite low (almost inaudible even at full load).

    ^ That cooler was intended for Low-Profile scenarios, not mid-sized ATX cases.

    Now this is a better option as it has more surface area.

    But really, I don't understand your post, OP. Are you saying that a Hyper 212 won't fit? Because to be honest, a Hyper 212+ is still the best value in terms of CPU cooling available at the moment http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065

    You are wrong.
    It is a low-profile that can fit perfectly into an HTPC/mini-ITX case, but that doesn't mean that you can't use it in a mid-tower/full-tower case. It will work just fine in those too.

    NH-C14

    It is indeed a better option performance-wise, but only that.
    Considering that it's the "size * performance : price" case in here, IMHO, NH-L12 would be still a better option, that's why I didn't recommend higher models (even though I could).
  4. I wasn't saying you couldn't use it for a Mid-tower/Full-tower case, I was stating it's a little bit silly getting something that was intended for Low-Profile scenarios (quite small, not a lot of surface area, i.e, not the best cooling performance) in a case that is quite capable of fitting a larger and much better cooler.

    If that's the case, then here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103100&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA

    Cheaper than the NH-L12 and it performs roughly the same if not better :) It also has more surface area while maintaining a small form factor.

    Depends on a particular CPU, but actually - nope, it's worse in most cases.
    I test tons of different hardware on a daily basis and I know what I'm talking about. NH-L12's better than "Gemini II" by a 8/2 ratio (where NH-L12 wins 8 rounds out of 10).

    if not better


    Emphasize on "if not", really. Because it's not.

    Thank you for enlightening me in that case :) But what CPU did you test with those coolers and by how much did the Noctua win by?

    But taking into consideration OP won't be able to OC further than around 4.3Ghz with ANY of these coolers, I don't think that this "winning" or "losing" factor matters here.

    On a side note, if OP's case allowed and if he had a budget of around $~80 for a cooler, I would've recommended either the NH-D14 or Thermalright Silver Arrow :lol:

    On that I agree, but not entirely.

    This is what I think about that sentence of yours.

    Useless, overpriced, over-hyped GARBAGE. Absolute waste of money, not worth getting at all (Proof).

    I would agree in certain scenarios it absolutely utterly FAILS, however, my brother is a huge fan of it and it's quite a performer. Personal preference I suppose :lol: I mostly love the cooler due to the looks... :lol:

    Yeah, in like "ALMOST ALWAYS".
    And it's fans has the worst bearings EVER (double-balls that are loud as FU*NK, and get even louder with time..but they ARE the most long-living, I'd give them at least that).

    IMHO, NH-D14 looks waaaaaaaay better than that puke-swamp colored ugliness.
