    When I was shopping for a good CPU cooler, I checked the reviews on THG and AnandTech. The Noctua NH D14 seemed to always come out on top. I have since bought the NH D14 SE 2011 with PWM fans and I am very pleased with it. Does a great job keeping the CPU cool and the PWM fans are very quiet.

  2. Ya thats what one ive been hearing about to ok, that looks like the winner. Thanks Yogi
  3. The best, custom loops. Other than that, AIO-Kraken x60, h100i. Air-Phanteks or Noctua. For Money/Performance, the EVO.
