Low Profile "Really good air-cooler"

rectinaught

Hi,

 

I am thinking about using the In-Win 805, even thought the "airflow sucks", for my next PC build. I think it look really good compared to most cases, which I value, and it caught my attention. The problem is; it only fits a sub-140mm high cooler, and I don't like cheap AIOs. I looked at the Be-Quiet Dark Rock TF, because it seems to be a low profile, silent performance cooler. It got dissed by a lot of people online it seems, so I am having second thoughts. Also, off topic, should I use SP or AF fans? I know you need a lot of airflow, but it seems like you got to push it through the case as well.

 

Thank you for your thoughts and ideas.

The Noctua NH-C14 would probably be one of your better options.

There is the CRYORIG M9i which is very VERY quiet and performs the same as a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO at $26 If you want something cheap.  (and does fit)

 

There is the CRYORIG C1 for $65 but it only performs similarly to the H7

 

Sounds sad that for such a sexy case, it limits itself with that 140mm cooler limit.

For the Best builds and Price lists here is a world where many points of the price have been predefined already for your convenience!

The Xeon E3 1231 V3 IS BETTER Than the Core i5 4690K and a Significantly better value for the non-overclockers or value shoppers.

Thanks. I did actually check out all of these coolers before, but I am looking for a sleek black look that would fit the theme. According to some benchmarks, I believe it was KitGuruTech, the CRYORIG C1 did not perform as well as Dark Rock TF or the NH-C14.

 

@Paralectic, is the LP better? It seems smaller and cheaper. Price is not a concern. I would like to be able to push my CPU a bit, maybe overclock it a tad.

 

@Str_Mape, the NH-C14 is by the best of the bunch, but so far I am searching for something a bit stylish.

 

@Weak1ings, it's indead a great shame. I believe it's made for expensive water cooling, judging by what I've heart and the design of it.

 

I don't really know how to respond to comments, but I'll try just typing your names.

The case fits cooler's up to 156mm.

An H7 from Cryorig would work.
