Need a new AM3+ CPU Cooler

I need to buy a new (but not too expensive) CPU Cooler as my CPU is reaching temps of around 55C when running at 3GHz of it's maximum 3.3GHz. My case is a Cooler Master K350 Midi-tower and I'm looking for one that will fit inside.

  3. Thank you both, I'm thinking of getting the Arctic Freezer 13 and was wondering how much it would reduce the temperature of my CPU at 3.3GHz and maybe even when OC'd. At the moment I'm getting near 60C with the stock CPU cooler so what sort of temps would i get with the Arctic Freezer 13?
  4. The mounting system on the EVO , is one of the worst , but it's a great budget cooler.
  5. It's a decent cooler and should be able to handle a little overclocking.
  6. you should get a hyper 212 evo instead temps would not exeed 40c
  7. Two Great options to keep those temps down , and easy on the wallet.

  8. The best would be this have this
    At this price its a steal


    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120M 86.2 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($24.99 @ Newegg)
  9. But that's with rebates ^ and you don't always get them , or have to wait forever.
  10. Just to let you all know I do have a budget of around £40 so is there any cooler that could be a little more expensive that performs better? Also Sn1992 that Seidon 120M is a Liquid CPU Cooler, how exactly do they work and are they better than normal coolers?
  11. It's water cooled.
  12. Get the 120m from cooler master
  13. Get the Arctic Freezer , you linked , it's a decent cooler for your needs.
  14. Well it's either the Arctic Freezer 13 or the 120M Seidon but it all really depends on which one will bring down the temps and how efficient it is. I've read up that water cooling is better in general and for Overclocking but I've never used water cooling before, are there pumps?
  15. If your not overclocking go with the ARCTIC AIR COOLER.
  16. Its a closed loop water cooler which has everything integrated in it so u need not to wrry about anything just fix it and forget it
    I wud strongly reccomend it for lower temps than artic freezer 13

  18. Actually I think I'm going to have to go with the Arctic Freezer 13 or Evo 212 as I don't think my Cooler Master K350 tower will be able to support the components for the water cooling. Thank you everyone :D
  19. there is nothing more than a 120mm rear fan mount needed to install a water cooler 120m
  20. The Arctic Freezer is easier to install , and will do the job.

    Grab a tube of this thermal for the install.

    £4.33
  21. My case doesn't have the spaces for the fans that are on the ceiling of the case, so does that mean I won't be able to get the 120m Seidon? Also does it come with all the parts you need?
  22. whar case u have???
  23. this is how it wud be installed

  24. The problem with the EVO 212 is that I don't think it fits inside my case.
  25. it will not fit for sure
  26. Right I'm getting the Hyper 212 EVO as that seems to be the best pick and it's quite cheap.
  27. Just go with the Arctic , it fits and is a decent cooler.
  28. The EVO doesn't fit in your case.
  29. yes it wont fit
  30. check the max cooler hieght
    http://www.coolermaster.in/product.php?product_id=6747

    its maximum 148mm but 212 evo is 159mm
  31. Don't buy it it doesn't fit

    120 x 80 x 159 mm HEATSINK

    Case allowance 145.5mm
  32. Ah you're right, wait what about the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO? If not it's the Arctic Freezer 13.
  33. 136MM , YES IT WILL FIT.

    I gave werner the Best Solution , for the Arctic and EVO TX3 suggestion.
