Okay so I don't want to Overclock as I went with a H97 board, but I want something quieter and cooler than the stock cooler. My CPU will be either i7 4790 (or k since Microcenter had it for same price as non k) or xeon equivalent.
the zalman CNPS5X just went on sale for $5 After Rebate. since I wont overclock I assume I can get away with using it on low-medium speed using a fan controller. Should I do it? is there another option that is quieter for $20? I also like how the Zalman seems like it wont block high profile ram either. I haven't bought the ram yet either
