    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    NH-U12P SE2 is good but bear in mind the supplied fans do not support pwm.
    If your M/B only supports pwm, the fans will run at full (fixed) speed regardless of cpu temp.
    The Noctua compatibility list say nothing about this problem.

    That's why there is something called a resistor.

    So if my board only has the 4-prong connector, I'll have issues with the U12?

    Not at all. It just means that if you want PWM fans you will need to replace the stock fans.
    Asus M8Z77-V Deluxe
    Intel 3770K
    G-Skill 1600 16G
    Corsair H100
    EVGA 670 GTX
    2 Corsair Force 3 120G (Raid 0)
    2 x Seagate 1T 6G
    2 Samsung SyncMaster T260HD Monitors
    Thermaltake Level 10 UGK
    Silverstone Olympia OP1000 1000W
    Windows 8

    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Aw but that seems counter-productive, considering the fans that come on it are supposed to be SUPER quiet, which was the whole point, and they're Noctua brand.

    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    My Noctua fans came with different resistors to make them run at a lower voltage (slower speeds).
    Even having two of the fans at full speed are still quiet.
    If you really want to run multiple fans at lower RPM's you can always hook them up to a fan controller.

    If the H100 will not fit, go for the H80
