Which would be better for a mini ITX system? I'm probably not going to overclock that much and would prefer it to be around as quiet as an Evo 212.
The Noctua will be quieter. Is this for the Hadron? That gives you a CPU clearance of 140mm - I would give this a go. Or a Thermaltake Frio Silent 12.
Yeah, for the Hadron. Just want Performance and quiet.
Maybe take a look at the Cryorig M9i. It's a very good cooler considering its size.
The Noctua looks like it would cool better though.
They're nearly identical in performance:
the Noctua is within margin of error in the areas of both noise and cooling, and the Cryorig is a lot cheaper.
Didn't notice that, I just thought it would be better quality, performance, and noise levels.
