Advice pls - Air cooler for 3770K

Recommended Posts

OK so I am about to lash out on a 3770K rig but need a cooler to do basic air overclocking. Not interesting in water cooling, just want something better than the stock cooler and fan that'll give me a decent speed bump.

 

Mobo will most probably be the Gigabyte UDH3 with GSkill Trident RAM. All inside a Silverstone Fortress FT02B.

Thanks. Ive been researching the Noctua, its coming up pretty good. Compatible with all my crap too, only issue is the ram, had to change to the z series instead of the trident.

 

Looks like that will be the go unless someone has a better idea?

cant beat the d14 i reckon for the price.

just be careful with that ram as its heatsinks may require you to raise the fan on the d14 intake side a little. since you only have 5mm to spare with the case depth perhaps some low profile RAM like ARES may be a better option for piece of mind.
