    "Warning": Noctua NH-C14 and Asus P8Z68 Deluxe

    teho59 Level 1

      A little warning. The cooler is so big that you cant use both fans on it with the memory mentioned below in all slots. You must remove the lower fan and cant get full effect of the cooler. Idle I am still at 36C so it is good. Have not stresset it yet, have to install my programs first.

       

      If the memory had been lower it might have worked out or my not using all memory slots. I use all therefore it became to tight.
