i7 9700k cooling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Looking at upgrading to a gigabyte z390 aorus elite and either an i7 9700k or i9 9900k, but have come to a blind halt when it comes to cooling.

I'd rather stick to air cooling as I've heard far too many horror stories with water cooled rigs, but I'm fairly out of the loop when it comes to what's needed in a system these days.

I'm not planning on Overclocking much, if any, so it will mostly be off stock cpu heats/speeds, but I live in northern Aus, so outside temperatures tends to sit at 34-42C for large potions of the year.
The system tends to be on almost all the time, and games are run on it maybe 4-8 hours a day

I currently have a coolermaster hyper 212X, though have been told that won't be enough for these cpu.

I'll be looking at spending up to about 150AUD (about 106 usd)

Any recommendations, advice would be greatly appreciated.

The Hyper 212X should be plenty if you don't plan to oc.

That wouldn't be upgrade worth wasting money. OP already has 212X, so upgrading would mean that they get either significantly better performance and less noise, or better looks.

How about the Cryorig R1 ultimate, not a huge cut into the wallet, and seems smaller/quieter.

Only issue is it doesn't say it fits an 1151

LGA115x all are same with mounting coolers. R1 Ultimate is far from "small". Its among the biggest air coolers on the market. So what is your case? IIRC R1 is 170mm tall.

Ahh that may be an issue with my current case, but was looking to put it into a phantek enthoo pro, which has 193mm clearance, so assuming measurements are right, I should have plenty of room

Currently have a deepcool tesseract, i'm using as a stopgap as my previous case was going on 8 years old and had some longstanding issues. Will probably end up making a secondary rig low/mid rig out of the spare parts.

Current specs are:

Spoiler

 Asus 1060ti 6gb
Gigabyte Z270-Hd3
i5 7600k
Coolermaster Hyper 212x 
2x8gb 2133mhz DDR4 corsair vengeance
2tb Seagate barracuda HDD (not sure on the speed of the HDDs, bought ages ago and forgot to check last time i reassembled)
1tb WD blue HDD
500gb WD blue SSD
And an old PSU I've had for close to a decade, Most of the sticker is gone, but I'm fairly sure it's an old 650w, possibly a litepower range one.
All mounted in a Deepcool tesseract.

Planned upgrade specs are:
 

Spoiler

Asus 1060ti 6gb
Gigabyte Z390 aorus elite
I7 9700k (or i9 9900k, budget permitting)
2x8gb 2133mhz DDR4 corsair vengeance
4tb Seagate Barracude at 7200rpm
1tb WD blue HDD
500gb WD blue SSD
Corsair 650M PSU 80+silver
Phantek Enthoo pro case
And ofc  The cooler/heatsink is TBD

I would say a Dark Rock Pro 4 or Noctua NH D15

 

Also seriously rethink that PSU you are planning for that system, a better quality PSU is highly recommended.

 

Also that ram is SLOW, I recommend DDR4 3000 min.

 

And the system will be unbalanced with the GPU you are planning, a more powerful GPU would be recommended 

 

Also change the MB to the AORUS Z390 Pro, better MB and only a few bucks more.


i9 9900K @ 5.0 GHz, NH D15, 32 GB GSKILL Trident Z RGB, AORUS Z390 MASTER, EVGA RTX 2080Ti FTW3 Ultra, Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB, Samsung 860 EVO 1TB, Samsung 860 EVO 500GB, ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q 27", HYPERX Alloy Elite KB, Logitech Gaming Pro Mouse, CM Master Case 5, Seasonic Prime Titanium Ultra 750W.

If you aren't keen on changing case, Thermalright Le Macho Grande RT is also one to look out for. It can give bigger coolers run for their price.
