would like to know what cpu cooling options I have with my setup


Recommended Posts

I have




Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866



Antec Nine Hundred ATX Mid Tower Case


evga 680 gtx classified


the nh d14 air cooler is out of the question bc of my tall memory so I'm wondering what options if any I have that would install smoothly from the corsair liquid coolers.


any advice as to what route to go would be helpful.

An H80i should work for your case and height restrictions, but if you get one, you'll also want to buy two 4-pin PWM-capable fans and a PWM Y-cable. Then connect the fans directly to the CPU fan connector on your motherboard and use the Asus fan controller software to drive them.


This results in a decent, but very expensive solution. (@$100 for the H80i plus another $30 or so for the Y-cable and two fans)


If you have other unused fan connectors on your motherboard, you can connect the pump RPM indicator to one of them for software monitoring.
