My very first build. Trying to work on the cable management. Still a work in progress! Going to install a CPU Cooler. Any suggestions?
well the best option would be (in my opinion) the "Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing"
good build :) very cool
the thing is, i don't think it will fit because of the 200mm fan on the window. any other suggestions, maybe a smaller one?
if you can, I would go for a water cooler. H100i?
ahaha, i'm on a budget of at max $40 :P maybe on another build, i'll do a liquid cooling.
The Cooler Master Seidon 120M is a cheap, closed loop water cooler. It's similar to the H100i in function, but has a smaller rad. It currently goes for $64.99.
Just in case you ever find a $20 bill lying around or something...
Not looking into building a water cooler on a first build. Maybe another time!
I got the N520 cooler master. just as good as the hyper 212 (if not better) with a shorter profile but wider with 2 fans. check out my build
I've seen this cooler used on multiple PCs with no complaints. For i to work even better, I think you can install a different fan like a Noctua.
On my build I used a Zalman. You can get it with no LED in it. It all copper so it really well.
It`s a 9500.
I'll look into that! Thanks for the suggestion.
Here it is if you want the one with no LED
That would be good, because after a while copper turns green... it would match the color scheme perfectly.
Doubt it would oxidize.
coolermaster seidon 120m is a nice water cooling system I am using and is easy to install and maintenance free! Keeps CPU temps cool and is good if you want to over clock. Also inexpensive right now for a water cooling system
If only I had the money to buy something more than $40 atm. xD
Well gigabyte sniper has green theme if you don't care about the performance...
^ I'm looking for a CPU cooler, not a motherboard. lol thanks doe.
Cooler Master Gemin II S524 77.7 CFM Sleeve Bearing. It is a low profile cooler that I use, it's quiet and works well. I use it in the Apevia X-Plorer 2 case with the large 200mm fan. Very similar case and same clearance and it fits nicely. See how high your ram heatsinks are before you get it though, it is made to clear high ram but Vengeance is crazy high.
Looks like your ram might be a little tall, you can still use the cooler, If you watch install videos on youtube or just read comments about the cooler you will see that you can also turn it and place it over the north bridge.
Also, this cooler come in at right around $40. So there you go.
Hey so I'm kind of doing the same kind of build you are doing. I have a question. Did you have to buy anything separately other than the parts listed here? Like a hdmi cord etc.
