New CPU Cooler


Recommended Posts

I have an Intel LGA 2011 3820 OC @ 4.3, idle temp. 34-36C and Load 50-55C, I want better. I have been looking for a new cooler, I have a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro, Its ok, idle temp fans at 1550RPM- Load fans on high at 2050RPM. H-100 seems good for upgrade but I don't have the space. So I have been looking and found this. Has anyone else seen it before?

I say RUN! RUN far and fast!!

Why do you not have room for the Corsair H100i cooler? No room in the top of the case?? If you want better cooling that would be my choice unless you want to do something like this > http://koolance.com/ex2-755-exos-2-v2-liquid-cooling-system-aluminum

Top mount outside the case cooler, then you'd need to pick up a water block from somewhere or pick one here > http://koolance.com/index.php?route=mods/product_wizard

That's a lot of money, I like closed loop idea and zero maintenance. My best cooler ever I think for its time was a this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118019 , I run a Zalman 9900 Max for a while but didn't cut it for the LGA 2011 3820.

 

This summer is were my problems are going to be, house will be 10C warmer, I might have to down clock. I know what Intel say is the max t-case is for the 3820, but what do you guys think, Idle __ and load___?

 

Oh, I like the Black Box it looks good lots of copper, water and compact. I think I will throw a little cash at it.

terry, if it's like any other kickstarter project, the money isn't actually collected until the goal is reached.

 

I don't see a problem with it as a project, but i DO fail to see how it would actually increase performance over a decent air unit, or ANY closed loop units. If anything, I'd be worried that the fan wouldn't be able to pull the heat from the pipes before you're recycling heated water, lol
