Default AKG? Best Coolers for Sandy Bridge 2500K-2600K OC

Hi all,

Sandy bridge is out, we all know that it's based on socket 1155. Coolers compatible with 1156 are also good for 1155. Good news.

Now, as AKG is the Cooling dude, it would be nice if he could tell us what to expect, which coolers would be better suited to run high overclocks on SB's unlocked CPUs 2500K and 2600K... We're talking from 4.6GHz up to 4.8GHz, maybe 5.0GHz (for the lucky bastages that will get a GEM)....

I'm eyeing the Noctua NH-D14, to put on a GA-P67A-UD4 or P8P67 Pro...RQAM clearance will be an issue, but Ripjaws or Muskin Blacks are fine...maybe D14 is overkill for Sandy (NH-D14 cools down hot 1366 chips after all). Sandy, being 32nm, doesn't have the same thermal output as the 1366 CPUs...

So, AKG and all early adopters of 1155 chips, please let's work together to put together an 1155 cooling thread
i7 4770K @ 4.0GHz / Corsair H100i / MSI Z97A Gaming 6 / 16GB Kingston Hyper X 1.5V 1600 / MSI GTX1070 FE / Samsung 850 Evo 500gb / Corsair Performance Pro 128GB SSD / Intel 520 120GB SSD / WD Black 640 GB storage / XFX 850 watts Black Edition PSU
