    Yes i have been studying this system a lot. Those coolers are great for cooling the CPU but the problem is they don't cool the VRM on the motherboard so i'm in search of a Blow down cooler i'm thinking about Noctua NH-C14S or CoolerMaster GeminII S524 Ver2 because the cooler needs to the cool the VRM as well the CPU and i refuse to jerry rig 80 MM fans on my VRM for my motherboard. But if it comes to i have to get a tower cooler i will zip tie fans on the vrm i just prefer not doing that ya know? Hyper 212 did a decent job of cooling the cpu idle,and underload but couldn't keep the VRM from hitting 70-80C people will say it's false but when i have multiple programs telling me that the North&South VRM are hitting 70-80C then its time to change coolers. also the H7 i had before as well. It kept everything cool on idle but underload was a different story. Just from running a game i would hit 75C on the CPU almost shutting down the system.

    Good point, although I use it 4 years without problems

    Never said the cooler was bad not what i was saying at all. The FX series has two VRM points which i will point out.


    Both of those need to get cooling which tower coolers can't do. Unless i jerry rig a fan to push on both of the VRM. so i need a blow down air cooler to hit on both of those VRM. To better explain my self.

    AM4 Motherboard:


    Has one VRM to cool the CPU which then you could use a tower cooler cause it will push air through the back a hit the VRM keeping it cool a the same time if you did a push/pull configuration.
