Nocuta NH - D14 VS Corsair H80
which is better Nocuta NH - D14 or Corsair H80 for i7 3770k

Probably the H80 because it takes up way less space around the socket

I dont care about space icare about temprature in overclocking

D14 is better than any of those closed loop water coolers. The only cons for the D14 are size related. If space and clearance isn't an issue for you than you'd want the D14. I've been researching this for the last few weeks as I am starting to do some light OC on my i7 960. I went with the much smaller Noctua NH-U9B SE2. Its perfect for my needs. Got it for $39 too price matched at ncix.

Also if you are interested in the C14 over the D14, not much of a different performance wise, you can price match that to $58.88 at NCIX. Its on for $58.88 in store only at Canada Computers but NCIX will ship it anywhere for the same price in price match. Considering the money you save the C14 is your best option. You can use the savings to pick up some extra fans or what not.

FrostyTech has an extensive list comparing the performance/noise of coolers.

The two coolers are quite close in performance. I don't think it would matter which one you used if you are extreme overclocking a IB chip. They get real toasty once you surpass 4.6GHz/1.3V

You might want to take a look at the Antec H20 620. Same size as the H80,runs a bit cooler and it's a hell of a lot more quiet. About $60 to $65.

Well my Noctua NH-U9B SE2 arrived today. I overclocked my i7 960 to 4.2ghz. Its stable and running fine. idles around 38 and peaks around 70. Its quiet as hell even without the low noise adapters. I actually took the side off once I was finished putting it in to make sure I had the fans plugged in the thing is so quiet. I can't imagine what you'd be able to do with the C14 or D14. I only 92mm fans on mine.
