Actually you're likely right, due to the fact that most heatsinks have their fin spacing/design optimized for sub 2000rpm speeds. Law of diminishing returns is fairly evident in high rpm tests that AKG does for CPU heatsink reviews.

Coolit ECO 240MM with some Scythe Kaze's on it in push/pull?

That might do much better to surpass the best air-cooling solution out there.

@JD: Law of diminishing returns maybe, but still it's not the greatest return I'm looking for.

@ST: Thing about the 240 is that I would have to either replace the top panel on my A77F, or get some kind of a shroud that would work for it. Not to mention that once I do, hopefully I'll have enough room.

Hey actually general question...since the H series coolers are radiators and thus have densely packed fins versus air coolers, would they benefitmore from high speed fans?

That was the point of my post and ilya's above.

Heatsinks aren't designed for high-airflow/pressure fans, they're made for medium/low speed fans to keep quiet due to the wide spacing between fins. Radiators have much denser fins so a high-airflow/pressure fan should (in theory) have a much larger effect.

It obviously depends a lot on your ambient temperatures too, but it's more likely you can get "cold" air from outside the case with a radiator compared to using "warm" air in the case and forcing it over a heatsink at 100+ CFM.

Honestly, you really are getting close to the point where water is the way to go....hell you probably are at that point. ;)

IF you want to go for insane OC on air...get the D14. Its simply the best when you stick 3 fans on it. You already got two killer good fans with the GT, find a third CM S4 fan and laugh all the way to insane OCs. If you cant find another S4, drop a R4 on it as the third fan.

With that being said...If you want the absolute most, from your CPU you really are going to have to go to water. Go with an external rad setup...get a 3 (or 4) bay rad + a good water block and decent pump and laugh all the way to even HIGHER OCs with lower temps. As a bonus the heat will already be outside your case. :)

YMMV but thats what I would do.

Or AkG, if they are still available through someone, a Coolit Freezone Elite would work wonders for his OC.

Now debating between NH-D14 w/ triple badass 140mm's on it, or H70 with two ultra-badass 120x38mm's on it...

There's not many "delta" 140mm's I could mount on the D14, but lots of flashy and still pretty high CFM 140mm's I could mount instead. Of course there's also the S4's as AkG mentioned....

I think between these two it's almost as if it comes down to looks vs. performance.

Yup, H70 for looks....D14 for performance...assuming your internal case air flow doesnt suck, in which case the H70 may be better.

Good luck and tell us how it goes. :)
