Best cooling money can buy without going water or LN

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of purchasing a 2600K for my future build. What would be the best heatsink/cooler that I could buy, I don't mind about the price as long as its not too loud.

 

Also, what would be an ideal overclock on the cpu through the multiplier and without raising voltages.

 

Regards

T

You might be able to, I haven't OCd that chip. And every individual chip handles OCs slightly differently, so if you've got a really good one, you'll get a bit more out of it with a bit less volts. Just give it a shot once you've got a cooler, raising the voltage a small amount will only change the temps by a few degrees anyway. Just keep going til you get the biggest OC you can with temps and noise you're comfortable with.

Most decent air coolers nowadays seem to do better than the TRUE, actually. It was king for a long time, but now there's a lot choice.

Dam, was hoping it was as easy as setting the multiplier to 40.

It is.

 

Just leave the voltage on auto, at 4ghz it shouldnt push it too high, but just remember that fine tuning your settings will get you a better OC.

 

For example, after a lot of fucking around mine is stable at 4.2ghz with 1.24v when vdrooping under load.

So to get 4.1 I'd have to change the voltage?

i doubt it since ~1.25v is stock but there is dud chips out there that wont do so well

can depend on your mb and how big its vdrop is to

 

 

Electr0 you think thats big take a look at

I was gonna say, phase change or peltier or something, but I'm guessing that's not what OP was wanting.

 

Should've said HSF in subject title :)
