Thanks! So the nh-14s would still cool either cpu ok then?
I have a d15 and I highly recommend it. I wouldn't skimp on a hot cpu. He is using it on a 7700k and it rarely gets over 35°C. Sits at 17 idle.

Indeed. The difference between a big cooler and a little cooler is someone will have to turn their oc down in the summer and someone wont..

They might be a pain in the ass to work around sometimes, but they are worth it.

The fuck? Do you live in a igloo?
No, it's in an upstairs bedroom, actually.

MY computer (6600k), which is in the basement, running a 360mm AIO, sits at 12 idle and doesn't clear 35 when doing DC. My basement is cold as shit though, so it is what it is.

He games on it. Ark, 2077, fortnite. When I run it for DCing it hits around 55. All very acceptable.
Oh ok, yeah that's a bit different from 35c as stated earlier. My 3770K @ stock with a big cooler runs ridiculously cool too.
