Hi, I am getting this i5 3570k soon, and was wondering if my Noctua NH-D14 was enough for overclocking the cpu to 4.6GHz , as a 24/7 overclock, for gaming and casual video /photo editing. Thanks in advance
Yes definitely dependent on your specific chip. I would think 4.5ghz wouldn't be much of an issue. As far as the NH-D14, it is the best air cpu cooler you can buy in my opinion. I own one and it cools my Intel system as well as my Antec 920 closed loop water cooler.
