The coolit pump died, needed a new cooler and "roadhog" suggested the noctua nh-d14.
With a single 140mm and single 120mm this sucker stays coooooool.

1.34vcore @ 4.0ghz
idle 34c load 59c (30 minute linx pass)

I did?

I don't remember this.

Anyways, congrats with the purchase!

my bad roadhog did, hence the cpu dies quote I imagine.

I like the concept- Dr. Pepper cooling the CPU. GENIOUS idear. I'm gonna' try and rig a Coors Light can, think it'll work as well? :D


No- seriously, beast looking cooler. I purchased the Cooler Master HyperN (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103057) several months ago and have yet to install it. Considering how cold it's been lately, and that I'm at stock speeds, the stock cooler is doing fine. :lol: I'll throw it on before summer for sure when the temps can get up there.

Honestly- how does it compare to your CoolIt?

:lol:

I've still got my CoolIt Eliminator in it's box. Never used it. :lol:

Would like to sell it, but I doubt I'd get a whole lot for it. :o

Been looking at this cooler for quite a while now, will be the one I buy when I build a new system unless something better comes along. Glad to see it's working well for you!

thats a GREAT little cooler! but i'm curious as to why you needed so much vcore to achieve 4Ghz? do you have the voltage set to auto?

when i first overclocked this 760 i set voltage to auto in the bios and it set it to 1.34v for 200x20 = 4.0Ghz. i then started testing voltages manually and found i only needed 1.240v to 100% stable. just thought i would tell my story .... droped my load temp 5-7 degrees just by having the lower vcore.

Awesome stuff Roliath :D
That would also be my cooler of choice right now, Noctua has great products in their line-up!

I also had a CoolIT TEC unit once, even imported it from the US but I quickly sold it. What a POS, didn't even match my old custom H2O while only cooling the CPU... Not to mention high end air cooling.
I agree these Noctua heatsinks are second to none, Superior product.:D here's the one I'm waiting for thats yet to come out yet.

I'm looking at the N12P 120mm one with the 7 heatpipe cooler.

vcore @ idles at 1.28, vcore @ loads at 1.34

vcore @ idles at 1.28, vcore @ loads at 1.34 so you do have your cpu voltage on auto then?

The new Archon is another viable choice. Fantastic with single or dual fans and also very quiet. Only con is the cost, which is about the same as the NH-D14.

Nope its set to 1.3v in bios with no vdroop enabled.

because that is totally compared to the noctua.

They're within a degree of each other with the silver arrow usually beating the noctua...but you knew that, right? ;)

No I didn't know that from the graph you originally posted since it didn't have anything related to the noctua on it at all.

I thought you'd be familiar with the silver arrow as it was designed to be the NH-D14's direct competitor.
