Cpu cooler for new build

I have already ordered my case(Thor V2),psu(hive 750w) and ram(G.SKILL sniper 8gb 1866). This weekend i will be ordering the i5 3570k and the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO(i will listen to any other reccomendations). My question is what cpu cooler should i get to achieve a safe 4.5ghz OC? I was looking at the tpc 812 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103176&Tpk=tpc%20812 I would prefer to not get the noctua because it looks ugly but if its that much better I will. Also I would like to know if I will have any clearance issues with this ram. Thanks for all the help

  1. the tpc 812 if you dont know has a loud ass fan. the noctuas are slient and very good. if you dont like the fan color, just go buy 3 gentle typhoon 1850rpm fans and slap them onto the cooler instead of the noctua fans. just hide the noctua fans inside the case where you wont see them

    i personally think that the noctua color is great and a awesome marketing scheme

    As I said, if you think that the noctua is that good then the appearance is not an issue. I just checked to make sure the ram I bought would fit and it will. Thanks for all of your help.
  3. i ordered a pair of snipers too today for 44.99 at newegg.ca. they fit under the d14 easily

    Yea I got them in today's deal thing, great price. Also, if you don't mind me asking, what is your opinion on the mobo I plan on getting? I will be running a single 670 or 680(no sli) just wondering if all I really need is something like an extreme 4
  5. the PRO board is ok but its not really worth the price. for a cheaper price, i could get the z77x-ud5h from gigabyte and it would have a few more features.

    it works though :)

    id rather not go with the extreme4 since i heard from somewhere that asrock was cheaping out on its capacitators

    Ok thanks for the warning, so the z77x-ud5h is a better deal?

    Actually the ud5h doesn't support my ram which sucks...
  8. If you are going for air cooling I would recommend the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO

    How much $$ are you willing to spend?

    If price is no object you could go with this dual fan rad from Corsair:

    The 212 evo is a cheap solution but I don't think itll be the best in OCing ivy to 4.5 with reasonable temps. Also, I do not want water cooling at all.

    That's weird, the mobo description doesn't list it. I'll have to research that before i purchase.
  12. The compatibility list isn't extensive - it won't have every compatible RAM listed.
  13. i doubt you will see much of a performance increase between 3.5ghz and 4ghz or 4ghz to 4.5ghz in real life other. the only performance gain you will see is in benchmarks or when you SLI/crossfire high end cards like the 680
