Cooling my new AMD 965
 
Im stuck between maybe the Cooler Master Hyper 212 or the COOLER MASTER V6 RR-V6SV-22PR-R1 DynaLoop if I decide to stay with air only.

I dont know what Liquid kit would be decent for my setup? Any Suggestions?

System as it stands right now
AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE Stock heatsink
4 x 2 gig sticks of Gskill Ripjaw ddr3 1600
2 x Geforce 465 PNY XLR 1 gig 256 bit gddr5 197.99 each sale ends today
2 x WD Sata 3.0 black series 640g 7200rpm 32mb cache in raid 0
2 x wd green 5400 1 tb 64 mb cache storage drives
Cooler Master GX 850 watt psu
Cooler Master HAF 932 Case
Asus M4N98TD EVO motherboard
Liteon DVD burner sata
Xifi Fatality series sound card pci express 1x /w drive bay


Soon Soon this rig will be folding and ALSO im kind of on a tight aftermarket cpu cooler budget so lets say par 130 usd prefer below 80 usd but hey.

Sorry I can't be of more help...It's been a looong time since I bought any air coolers, and my water cooled rigs are built from parts. I have seen some nice kits advertised but don't have any experience with them.

I did once have a Thermaltake kit that was adequate, but when the pump failed I replaced the kit. It did last quite a while, though, iirc.

Yea Im researching some coolermaster water kits / air kits.

Trying to find the best water kit for this HAF 932 case. Debating do I need water for my gfx cards or would the cpu be all i need?. I dont plan on overclocking the crap out of the 465's

EVGA has some really nice WBs for the 400 cards, around $125 or so. Take a look on their website.

But I wouldn't do it unless I planned a second loop...

I ended up buying the coolermaster hyper 212 plus for my 965. JESUS CHRIST this thing is huge. It dropped my temps down 15c under full load so thats sweet. Still letting the ac5 set it

Sorry Nec I didn't see this post until now.
Been in & out of the hospital lately. :rolleyes:

Anyways I don't have the V6 but have the V6GT!
Yes, it is HUGE!!! 6½" tall x 5.1" wide x 4.7" deep. :eek:

Cools like a mofo with the double DynaLoop fans in push pull
& the fan attachment system is way simple & cool!
Just snap-on, snap-off. :)

My E8400 idles at 72F & 118F at load running @ 4GHz. :thumbsup:

or the Corsair equivalent is not too bad either for roughly the same price.

Necorum 23rd December, 2010 05:24 AM

I might go with a coolit on my new build or go with the collermaster 212 again. If on a budget the coolermaster kept my 965 under 50c overclocked to 3.9-4.1ghz
