Cooler?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So long story short: 

 

Since Noctua isn't available in my country, which cooler would be adequate for a 6600k with a planned upgrade to a 8700k or r7 1700 in the next year.

NH-D15 @ $130 including customs and shipping... OR

Phanteks PH-TC14PE @ the equivalent of $75 

 

I'd prefer not to have water cooling in my system. My hyper 212x gets over 80 degrees C even with only a modest overclock of 4.5GHz.  

 

Thoughts?

I vote Phanteks, nearly half the price but much more than half the performance.

Gammaxx 400 if you want to save a buck, Cryorig H5 would do a good job. that phanteks cooler will work nicely for you, but seems a bit expensive to me


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

It's worth noting that the Phanteks is not compatible with AM4.

 

The noctua has a AM4 mounting kit but it doesn't come with the cooler, you probably have to buy that separately.

I'd see if you could get something cryorig. My buddy installed one of their coolers for his PC a few years ago and it's still running great.

Thanks for the replies guys. Been looking for Cryorig and BeQuiet but unfortunately, they fall in the same boat as the noctua. And I'll need to use a drop shipping service just to get them here because Amazon won't ship it here themselves. 

 

Kinda hoping that Amazon somehow has a Black Friday behemoth sale on the Noctua, but I'm not holding my breath.

 

Anyone know of a decently priced online store that will ship to South Africa?

If you're going Intel, the PH-TC14PE is a fine option. It performs almost as well as the NH-D15.
