Title says it all.
Don't want liquid if I can avoid it.
Also be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 is also a decent one, but rather massive :D
I am currently stable with the Cryorig R1 Ultimate and 6600k @ 4.7 GHz.
Noctua D15 is One of the Best Air Coolers out right now.
If it will fit in your system it should perform well..
The Noctua D15
the CRYORIG R1 Ultimate
Cooler Master V8 are the best air coolers.
On the lower end the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and CRYORIG H7 are great but you wont get as high of a overclock compared to the other three higher cost coolers.
This. Except for the V8. That sucks for the price and should only be bought for appearance.
How is the V8 any good? It's expensive, and doesn't cool any better than your basic Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
EDIT: You also forgot the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3, it shares ever so similar cooling performance compared to the D15 and R1 Ultimate.
phanteks ph tc12dx keeps my cpu temp in 30s while gaming and its oc'ed @ 4.3 atm
Does the Dark rock pro 3 is really worth the 50$ more compared to the H7 ?
I want to Oc my cpu... but i don't know where i wan't to OC. 4.3, 4.5, 4.7, etc. I don't know how it works really... But i wan't a good OC.
If you can afford that much on a cooler I would go with this. Its cheaper, smaller, and better performing than the Dark Rock 3 Pro.
