Which One Of These CPU Coolers Are Better For An AMD FX-6100?

Last response: in CPUs

No OC planned at the moment, I just want to get the damn CPU cool in games at least for more than two or three hours (thing that AMD's stupid stock fan can't do even for 20 minutes). BTW both of these coolers are around the same price where I live and are my only choices

. Thermaltake SpinQ VT (in my viewpoint: older, more decent, less noise) (TT's website doesn't mention AM3+ socket as supported but the guy I'm buying from guarantees it and claims they've tested it)

. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (in my viewpoint: newer, cheapa$$, more noise)

I would go with the EVO. Without overclocking, noise isn't going to be a factor, and either cooler will do just fine.

I would go with the Evo. It is a proven little cooler. As for the Termaltake, I haven't seen very positive reception. A bit underperforming for the price.

Only one question here, does that Thermaltake cooler even support FX-6100 or is the guy bluffing?

"Compatible with Intel CPUs using LGA 1156 / 1366 / 775 socket and AMD CPUs in Socket AM3 / AM2+ / AM2 / 939 / 754 packaging, this versatile Thermaltake model was designed to work with just about every modern desktop CPU." Taken from Newegg. The thing is, if you purchase a unit that was issued before the release of AM3 then it is highly likely that the box won't include mounting mechanism for the above mentioned socket.

Thanks, I'll go with the CM one

I finally got the Hyper 212 EVO. It's working great without any noise, keeping FX-6100's temperature at 20-25 (idle/medium multitasking) and at 40-45 (6 cores maximum load %100)

who the fck u callin kid? i merely asked a question toolbag, reading comprehension isnt your strong suit is it?

"you are tellin me that without an oc your chip is overheating from a stock fan?"

is me reacting in disbelief that a company could not make a stock fan to do its one single purpose in life.

I'm not insulting anybody here, you are though, with posing a idiotic question out of fuking nowhere in a topic that has been already solved a decade before.
