FX6300 OC cooling.

Recommended Posts

I've searched and can't get a real good answer but I plan on OCing my 6300 and I want to know what liquid cooling kit I should use. I want to keep as cool as possible. I'm using the cooler master elite 431 case.

I kinda figured a dual would be best the case is basically set up for a dual 120 set up.

Thats not a bad option. I used that cooler when I looked at the 9590, 9370, 8370 and 8370E and it held up fine as long as you are reasonable with the applied voltages.

Well I've never oced before so I plan to take it slow until I fully understand everything

When I look at the Cooler Master Elite 431 there appears no room at top for radiators. One front and rear?

Just not a liquid cool case.

Ohldboy you might be right. It is pretty tight. But a thin radiator might fit. I may just wait until I get a full tower

I mounted a 240mm radiator on the top of my Enermax Coenus, sure the fans are on top of the case, but it still works.

Depending on how far your motherboard and memory modules are from the top of the chassis you may be able to get away with an in case solution. If that will not work then just about any of the 120mm based solutions will work. The H80i would be a good choice if you prefer Corsair.

I would not go that route of a refurb because of limited warranty.  Every wonder where all the coolers came for to be refurbished? :D  My guess is RMA and very possibly even new ones because of the much reduced warranty and liability limits on refurbs.  Corsair Hydro series and expeically the H100 have a long history of problems .. mostly pump failures and leaks.

 

Honestly, top air coolers are almost always better cooling, make much less noise, have almost no problems with dependabilty and cost less then CLCs do.  ;)
