    Default Noctua NH-D14 or Corsair H70

    Hi, i am having trouble of choosing one of the coolers for my CPU. these are the Specs i am gonna BUY

    Intel Core i7 2600K
    Motherboard Asus Maximus IV Extreme
    Kingston Technology Hyper X 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC (x2 TOTAL 16G
    Kingston Cooling Fan for HyperX PC Memory
    HDD WD 1TeraByte Caviar Black 7200 RPM
    ASUS GTX 590 3GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
    Coolermaster HAFX Chassis
    DVD Supermulti Samsung 24X
    Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200 Watts Modular Power Supply

    now since i am gonna be overclocking both the CPU and RAM, i need a good cooler. for the ram it's done
    but for the CPU, i was thinking of either the Corsair H70 of the Noctua NH-D14. I have read that the Noctua is better, i am afraid that the Kingston HyperX cooler wont fit. so ANY advice. THNX

    According to Jake who did the Sandybridge review:

    1- Sandybridge does not run hat like LGA1366 processors
    2- Extremely good cooling will not get higher overclocks but the processor will run cooler.

    The D14 is one of the premier air coolers but you will most likely not get better overclocks than the H70 but will run cooler

    they both will doing fine with 2600K but if you're going to fill up 4 DIMM slots then it's might to close to the NH-D14 cooler.

    You don't need RAM cooler just waste of money because these mem run pretty cooler, second is you can't really overclock the memory for SB. The next option to run the mem at 1800Mhz or 2133Mhz and I doubt your mem can run that high.

    Because there's no blck overclocking, maybe small increment, therefore no mem overclocking. So it's better to buy the fastest ram you can afford. Perhaps 1800Mhz or higher, however 1600Mhz is good enough for what you are going to achieve from 2600K. You're lucky if you can get 5Ghz out of your chip.

    I just reviewed the Scythe Susanoo and it performed better than the D-14. It is gargantuon but elevated over the RAM not only no interference with the memory but it also cools the memory. It has 4 x 100mm fans. The Prolimatech Genesis cools as good as the D-14 and is elevated over the dimm slots also cooling the memory. The Genesis is in our review section and the Susanoo is being edited by our sleepy editor as we speak.

    Lets not forget that the Prolimatech Genesis CPU cooler also has a built in ram cooler which can hold a 140mm fan. You can install up to three 140mm fans on the Genesis. Here's our review:

    Thanks Daddy. I was on my droid.............. When I responded...

    Here is the Scythe Sasanoo. The review will be up shortly and it actually outperformed the D-14
