Why not have them vertical or laying on their long side and parallel like RAM modules?
Yep - Accelero Extreme IV. Works a charm too - can overclock to 1400 and keep the temps reasonable
what sort of temps do you get with this? i finally found a site that sells it in AU and am thinking about picking one up for my 980Ti, as the Super Jetstream Cooler, while excellent, struggles with recirculated air in the M1.
id use 2x120mm Noctua iPPC 2000rpm fans on it. id love to know your details before i commit to buying.
The max is ~74C while benching, which is fine with me. That's with my Noiseblocker M12-PS running at 1100rpm as I like to keep my system as quiet as possible.
are your fans set at intake or exhaust? you have a significant OC running on your GPU yes? did you find that mounting the system to the card and getting the card inside the case was hard work?
id love to get a fair bit of detail regarding your thoughts/pros/cons on this cooler before i go ahead and buy it, given i could use the G10 kraken i already have (but would prefer more silence/no pump noise).

i have playing with the system for a while and the psu stayed silent the fan didnt even spin
Sometimes a small flathead screwdriver applied tangentially to the head of the stripped screw head will slowly turn the screw out of the hole (counterclockwise). Applying some pressure from the underside of the screw (a straightened paperclip) will help.
Fans are intake - mounted straight to the bottom of the case.
I've got it OC'd to 1400 and 3800 (+200 core and +260 memory).
Very easy mounting the cooler, though the only thing I'd note is the supplied washers were too tall and I didn't get very good contact, but I had something else suitable to use that fixed that. Otherwise it's very easy to take in and out of the case as long as your cables are neat
I've always used Thermalright coolers and had a TR Shaman on it before it which didn't work as well (surprisingly).
I don't think you'd get a better setup in this case - I'd only change it over for a full block and "proper" WC setup...
right well it looks like i may hold off on the Arctic Accelero Extreme IV - unable to find it in Australia - so the only way to get it is off the Arctic International store - which will cost me like 135AUD, which is a tad extreme for a GPU cooler!
I'm thinking of going with the nh-c14.Actually the V4 edition of the side fan bracket has slightly longer fan mounting slots which allowed me to connect the Noctua NF-A15 PWM, a 140 mm fan with 120 mm mounting holes, to the side fan bracket over my NH-C14 along with a second 120 mm fan beside it. You can also add a 120 mm fan to the underside of the NH-C14 heatsink for a push-pull arrangement.
I've been holding on to my v4 m1 for over a month (feels like a year), waiting for Skylake itx.
Since the motherboards are getting released. Id like to ask your opinion regarding the cpu coolers.
My main priority aside from cooling is the noise levels. Ive narrowed my choices to the following
Nh-u9s (push pull config - hot air goes out on top), nh-c14 or Be Quiets dark rock tf.
The dark rock is extremely hard to find, i have to grt it outside my country. Not sure if its worth the hassle.
My components are...
Gigabyte z170n itx gaming5
Sm951 achi 512
Nvidia 980ti ref
Silverstone 500w sfxl
16gb ddr4 3000mhz
Ive been thinking about the build for a month. I need help to finalize the build so that i can regain my sanity.
Mounting the SFX power supply in the ATX bracket will block the front half of the side fan bracket. As for adding the lower 140 mm fan to the C14, I think it will fit so long as your RAM modules are not taller than 38 mm.
I see very few people using the ZALMAN CNPS8900 Quiet 110mm CPU fan, is it not recommended for an Ncase build?
I've been mulling about it and I'm just not convinced that the C14 would be suitable for X99 at a reasonable overclock (e.g. 4.4-4.5GHz). My NH-C12P was quite the underperformer for my 3770K.
The C14 would probably do well for Z97 and Z170, though.
I want to use crucial ballistic sport witch is 30mm in height. So I got enough clearance there.
Wil the dual 140mm fan setup of the nh-c14 be enough to cool the system if the rest of the case acts as passive exhaust?
I've been going through plenty of C14 reviews and while it seems suitable for overclocks on smaller quad-core platforms, it seems to absolutely fall apart with the thermal loads from HEDT. The underwhelming performance was evident on LGA 1366 processors (i7-920/960 IIRC, so not even the hexa-cores).It would depend on your criteria. A bad chip will never hit 4.4 GHz on an NH-C14, but I think a good one could if you are okay with ~80 C temps and don't use any AVX stress testing (no Linpack, newer Prime95 versions, IBT, etc.).
There's no question that it remains one of the only viable options as far as low-noise is concerned, but I'm strongly leaning towards a H100i with low-RPM fans instead given the temperature concerns.
As someone who replaced my H100i with a C14, the H100i is not significantly cooler. My own testing showed a 1 C difference in favour of the C14. That's far within margin of error, the fans I used could've accounted for the difference.
Again, I don't think 115X testing applies to HEDT at all.
My H80i outperformed an NH-D14 on X58.
Additionally the NH-C12P was so far below the H80i (at similar noise levels) with a 3770K and 4790K in a SG08 that I'm just not willing to gamble with the Noctua bandwagon again.
But how do you know modern HEDT is anything like Broadwell? I've read the reviews too and there was only one that had the C14 fail catastrophically despite most using the 1366 platform.
Really, most reviews I've seen are so poorly done that it's embarrassing.
