Hello brothers and sisters :D  I am now stuck with cooling solution for i7-3770K. Right now i am running stock cooler, but i want to run like 4.5GHz.

My current setup :

NZXT Switch 810
OCZ Silencer Mk II Series 950W
Seagate Barracuda - 3TB
Intel Core i7-3770K
Corsair Vengeance Low Profile Black 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1866
Kingston HyperX 3K - 120GB
2x EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2048MB
ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE - Intel Z77 ( Want to change it to MSI Z77A-GD80 )

I was thinking about NH-D14 and 3x Airen hAiBridWings 120E, but sounds pretty crazy huh ? :D 

Waiting for help, thanks :)

To reach 4.5GHz on the Intel® Core™ i7-3770K you are going to need to a very robust solution for cooling. The Noctua NH-D14 is about the best of the air coolers. You might also look at the closed loop cooler like the Corsair H100i.

What about Phanteks PH-TC14PE ? If i would add one fan it could match the H100i maybe ?

From the reviews that I have read the closed loops and even better custom water seem to respond quicker to the heat build ups. I personally wouldn't have a problem running the Noctua or the Phantek and excepting to get very good perforance form both of them. I think that they are both very close or equal to the Corsair H100 that I am now using.

Much better than an H100i.

Like $50 more though. Don't get the H100i it's just a waste because it's pretty much the same, well less cooling performance than the Noctua NH-D14.
