With my system spec, will a Thermalright Ultra 120 heatsink w/ AKASA HDB Viper Fan be suitable for overclocking my CPU to 4.0ghz, mainly for gaming?

Case: Microcool Banchetto 101

CPU: Intel i5 760 2.80ghz

Motherboard: Asus P7P55D-E LX

Cheers

I don't know much about the Thermalright Ultra, but I will tell you that most people on here will tell you to buy a Noctua NH-D14 or some other Noctua cooler.

I dont think it will dissapate enough heat tbh dude, you want it kept (well) under 80 and I dont think the TRUE will do that.

Looks like a clone of the original Noctua with the 120mm fan. You might get away with it if your 'case' is that stand thing I just saw on google images.

True Push and pull with washer mod, you might be able to. It a great cooler, just outdated. NH-D14 is great. Does everything magically.

If you don't really have money for an expansive cooler, The Cooler Master 212 is an amazing cooler for the price

If I were to buy the Noctua NH-D14, there would be no trouble in replacing the front

120mm Noctua fan with the AKASA HDB Viper Fan would there?

Purely for aesthetic reasons. Thanks.

Don't take this as gospel as I am not sure of the testing circumstances.. Buuuut.. I recently read a review of the NH where the dood removed first the end fan (1c rise) and then the middle fan (another 1c rise) for a total temp increase of 2c.

However, either I didn't read it in depth or he didn't list how he was running that setup.

Mind you let's face it, Noctuas hardly shift the most air they're just quiet. Other fans can shift up to double the CFM with double the noise. So yes, I would say you could do that BUT good luck. The Noctua comes with the clips mounted onto the fans with rubber grommet things and I wouldn't try to remove them on account of -

You would need to seriously bend the clips then bend them back risking snaps.

You could easily rip the grommet destroying it. And there would be no way back nor recourse as your warranty would be void.
