    CPU cooler for OCing a 4690K in an NZXT H500?

    ok so I looked and I got in this (gifted) PC those stupid Ripjaw ram kits which probably have clearance profiles with those coolers. (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL if anyone happens to have tried those with those coolers). I guess I can try removing the ram heat spreaders
  2. So I know the case isn't the best for cooling but I want to do this anyways. What's my best options for OCing an i5 4690K?
  3. oh I am willing to spend if it justifies itself and cools well. I just don't need like seven DVD drives + eight hard drive cages or whatever it is case makers think people want. I don't mind if the case has that, basically nothing is a deal breaker unless it has horrible temps.
  4. ATX (Z77 Sabertooth if it matters)
  5. I used to have the Corsair Obsidian 800D and used it with that CPU cooler and my temps were so low I would see other people's temps and think they were overheating :lol: Anywho, I only am interested in using that cpu cooler and no water cooling, and I don't need or use a DVD drive, what's a good case with good airflow for my baby? Edit: I have an ATX Mobo

    help me improve my Bitfenix Prodigy temps

    whoops forgot to mention my cpu is a an i5 3570k
  8. stock clocks, full load under LinX my cpu (i5 3570k) is about 67c. Seems kinda bad even if the prodigy isn't a super big case aftermarket cooler: Dark Rock 2 Rear Exhaust fan: Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140mm Case fan Front intake fan: BitFenix Spectre All Black 230mm Case Fan I tried removing the front panel but it didn't do anything, my graphics card is a small HD7850. I think I did the thermal paste poorly (any tips on this?) are these temps the norm for this? Do you think I'd be able to get a small/decent OC with it?
  9. so I got the two fans but my temps are almost the same, so it's probably the thermal paste, or the heatsink isn't good enough. Oh I didn't get that last rear exhaust fan
  10. why is that heatsink not sold anywhere? Nothing seems to carry it
  11. would different thermal paste really make that big of a difference?
  12. ok thanks some questions. The fan in front, isn't it blocked by the front panel? And the heatsink is fine just the fan isn't? Or should I get a different heatsink? Also if my mobo doesn't have enough fan headers, what do you do?
  13. What would be more synergistic for this case? On load at stock clocks I get like 65C (LinX). What do people do for cooling in this case? The fan on the heatsink is this
  14. is there any way to buy a stock cooler for a reference 7970? I don't have one
  15. I don't have the stock cooler lol ugh what a drag
