    Default CPU Coolers

    I do not see many CPU coolers for the 2600K. Is this because it will work with coolers for other i7 devices like the 950?

    Also, is the Red Scorpian cooler any good? It looks quite sexy.

    yup...1156 and 1155 have the same mounting holes demension.
    I never heard of Red Scorpion cooler either but just Google it and it's made by Xigmatek.

    I am finishing up my review of the TT Jing cooler for the 1155 setup and I have found that even though the back-plate holes are definitely the same you will run into some problems with the mounting hardware on some previous coolers for both 1156 and 1366 systems.

    One example is with the Xigmatek Agir where the upper brackets extend into the sinks around the processor. Nothing a little time with my hacksaw couldn't fix though.

    The Red Scorpion by Xigmatek is definitely old school, came out in 2008 and it only fits Intel 775 and older AMD sockets.

    Don't see why you couldn't take the fans from it and mount them on a newer Xigmatek and not have the same sexy look you are talking about. I just don't seem to be able to look at a CPU cooler and think sexy, now that young thing on Vinny's desktop or Deton's pirates now those are sexy. LOL

    Thanks for that. With so many coolers that DO fit, I wouldn't be keen on that - there are so many that do fit. There is one I fancy with 2 fans and hope like hell it will physically fit. Thx!

    LOL, yeah OK! There are quite a few I think look 'slick' then ...

    At $27, I am prepared to spend a lot more for something decent, that fits. Thx

    I was hoping you wouldn't ask. I was browsing down a suppliers website and saw it - vertical fins with about 5-6 heat pipes, and a suck and push fan - either side of the fins, and right in line (in at ATX case) with where CoolMaster often put a suck-fan. So, two fans move air through the fins and directly into the intake of a case ventilation fan. And I can't recall anything about it except it was pricey and I considered it to be about as efficient as a fan could be. It will be on the mWave.com.au site.

    OK, since writing the above, I found this dual fan model, but it wasn't the one I liked; that had a different ... more sexy (or slick) appearance. Square block of fins, fans each side, it all looked compact and efficient. Anyway, here is one ...

    For that price wouldn't it be better to go with the Noctua nh-D14? OR is it incompatible?

    The unit is available from the same place but a fair bit dearer. I wasn't going to buy that other one but could see the merit of 2 fans. But at the end of the day it doesn't really matter, so long as it works. My demands will be less than some peoples here.

    Just pick up a Cooler Master Hyper 212Plus, comes with two fans is "sexy" looking I guess considerably less money and I have seen it cool the 2600K at 5GHz.
