Solved Affordable cpu cooler for intended overclocking (4.5ghz + - 0.1ghz) Tags: Overclocking Cooling CPUs Gigabyte Last response: August 1, 2013 8:36 PM in CPUs Share deadlytivo August 1, 2013 8:09:16 PM I currently have the build : Gigabyte GTX 770 Windforce 3 Vengeance 8gb DDR 3 1600mhz i5 4670k 3.4ghz Gigabyte z87x-OC SSD / HDD combo Anyways, I am hoping to overclock to 4.5ghz but would settle for 4.4 depending on pricing I first looked into the sensationalised Hyper 212 Evo until I saw all the bad reviews about performance / noise. I don't want anything more expensive than $AU 50 (Australian) Also, I don't want anything larger than the evo hyper (or atleast not by much) Some things that have stood out include - True Spirits 120m and Phanteks TC12DX. Anyways, I am a noob so I would really appreciate some suggestions from the community here.

I really like the performance of my zalman cnps 9900max, not sure on the pricing for u but its quite quiet compared to the rest of my case fans etc. Also a push pull fan Xigmatek Dark Knight II was supposed to compare to a h100 Reply to lazyboy947 Ask the community Post an answer Related resources: ForumSolvedWhat kind of Cooler will need if i want to overclock the CPU to 4.5Ghz?
