Hey guys. recently i made a budget computer for about £430/$640 and i love the performance. i play bioshock infinite at very high settings with 45+ fps at 1080p. however the cpu does get very hot so im wondering which is a better cooler?
Hyper T4 CPU Cooler for Intel LGA 2011/1366/1156/1155/775 and AMD FM1/AM3+/AM3 /AM2 CPU's

Or

Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro V2 CPU Cooler

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/arctic-cooling-freezer-7...

The price difference is around £4/$6 so whatever one is best i will get.
Also if anyne is interested my specs are

AMD athlon II x4 760k BE
XFX radeon hd 7770
4GB RAM
All preipherals except a monitor added upto $640 and it is amazing bang for buck!

Many Thanks

I would say go for the Coolermaster hyper 212 evo. That is one of the best air coolers you can get at the moment.

Cool. BTW i know its not relevant to this thread but did i make the right choice getting this athlon? higher base clock and same cores, newer architecture but no L3 cache :/

The Phenom II is better, but its not anything major. If they are the same price the Phenom is the way to go, but if you got the Anthlon cheaper it is alight. You can use this to see the comparison http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/188?vs=88
