    I need a new CPU cooler, please help.

    Hi,

    I recently got the message that my I7 3770k Reached 70 degrees during some heavy use of my computer.
    Now I am using the cooler that came with the CPU, so I am looking at a new cooler to put on this CPU.
    However I am clueless on what is a good CPU cooler at the moment and if I have enough room to place it in my case.

    Here are my specs:

    Case: Corsair Carbide 500R
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M4X2133C11R
    Mobo: Asus Maximus Formula V

    I am not looking to overclock my CPU and the moment my CPU reached that heat was when I was rendering a video and playing a game. Perhaps that's a bit too much to ask for, but I think with a better cooler my CPU wouldn't mind too much.

    Thanks for your advice!

    The Netherlands, budget ain't a problem, I just want a good cooler not for OC purposes, but that can keep this CPU cool at heavy usage.

    If you got room in you case, get this.

    You can also consider this.

    The nice things about these all in one water cooling are that there's no maintenance, it's pretty quiet, and no weight on the mobo. You can use any rams you want and not have to worry about space like those other air cool heatsink. Some of them require low profile ram kits, others you have to remove the rams in order to put on the fans on the heatsink.

    I prefer a air-cooler though, but no maintenance sounds interesting

    If it's about air-cooler, then my favorite is the Noctua NH-D14... add a third fan to it and it will handle very big amount of heat loads...

    Sorry for the dutch sites, but I just went looking for the coolers you suggested (of couse I'll go for the one with 2 fans) and I found these two.
    Could you tell me the difference?

    @Zka17: Seen that one, but I am afraid it will not be compatible with my Ram.
