Looking for a good heatsink.

Recommended Posts

Maaaan, that is a small case. I modded and put two together LOl, to fit in h20 cooling for gpu and cpu, two seperates loops/rad/pump. You will need a flatter size hs, not the towering once.

 

 

Take a look at this and maybe it will suit your needs, its got great review on this site.

I was just reading the OCC reviews on the Cooler Master GeminII S. That one, the Cooler Master V8, and the Thermalright Ultra120 Extreme. In it the GeminII S was right there with the others for temperature being only a couple of degrees behind. The only con the OCC review has was (as I know from another system I have worked on with it) that you have to remove the whole motherboard to take it off. But normally I don't fuss with the CPU once I have it in. By the time the CPU I'm looking at would need to be replaced it would be out of warranty and that is when I start to overclock my stuff. But how would the H50 stack up against those?

H50 is good but TRUE120 would be better.. (And I have no idea about the one recommended just before my post..)

 

H50 doesn't need the liquid to be changed..

 

The H50 is a very good cooler if not used with the stock fan and is guaranteed for 2 years.

I have mine set up with 2 fans attached to the rad, an Antec tricool (or whatever the hell they call them... Antec 1200 case) and a 120 by 38 mm Delta hooked up to a fan controller that pushes (pulls in my case... http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.p...owtopic=168515) well over 140 cfm at maximum settings. It all depends on what you are willing to put up with as far as noise is concerned and how the case and fan configuration will influence the performance of the cooler of choice.

 

Hope this helps.
