Best CPU Cooler under £65

I'm new(ish) to system building, and I'm still running on an embarrassing stock CPU cooler. I have an Intel i5 3570K and wish to overclock. I have no idea what is more appropriate for this price range, liquid cooling or air cooling? I heard that the H60 was good, but I'm keeping my options fairly open (as long as it's not too hard to install, like a custom water cooling setup).

Thanks! :)

  1. hello there,

    if you are not aiming for insane/crazy/extra overclocking... a CoolerMaster Hyper212EvoR2 will do just fine. it comes for 30$ and makes miracles :D

    +1 to that.

    There isn't any real point in going for water cooling under £65 anyways in my opinion.

  4. +1, I happen to use use something else as I already had it, but evo212 is very good for the price.

  5. just make sure that if you are going to get a 212 Evo, its a revision 2. there is actually big difference if you compare to its revision 1 version. rev1 is also ok, but for the same price you would get less performance, since rev 1's fan is slower and has lesser air pressure. the tower sink is the same though...
