Default Re: CPU Fan?

The retail units recently released by AMD come with a closed loop liquid cooler. I would recommend nothing smaller than something based on the Corsair H80. If you want air cooling, then I wouldn't use anything smaller than this:

Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler - Newegg.com

There is no way in hell, he says, that air cooling is going to work on this.
You obviously bought the tray version of the chip. I'd be bitching too if I plunked out that kind of money and that's all you got.
Watch this vid on why you need to liquid cool this beast.

This will work. Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler - Newegg.com
BTW why don't you trust water cooling?

On water cooling, I have just seen so many stories of them failing and bursting everywhere and ruining everything rather avoid it if possible but don't mind it. Also would either the Corsair H100 or H80 work okay ?

And yes it was just the tray CPU which was a real ****** off.. quite annoying to say the least,

Well that sure has happened, but that has mostly happened to people not being careful and it's usually with more advanced water cooling systems.
The H sereis from corsair is a closed water cooling system. so a burst should not happen.

If you exist on air cooling, then the Noctua (as particleman sugested) will do wonders. it's one of the absolut best air coolers on the market

Of course water cooling can fail and leak. If you invest in a high end custom loop I doubt it will fail. If it was a big problem no one would use water cooling.
