Which Heatsink should I pick out of these 3? Will pick best answer

Need a heatsink that will lower my i5's load temps from 80 C with the stock cooler now to under 70 C.

It also needs to be low profile (under 80mm) so I narrowed it down to these 3.

Which one will work best? Can I just go with the first one since its cheapest or will it not be able to lower temps enough?

    Those won't be any better than stock.

    If they aren't better than stock then why do they even make them?

    Suggest one for me then? Socket 1155 and under 80mm

  4. Do you have an exact size range? With that information, I could try to find the best for that size.

    Will the second one be able to lower temps from 80 on stock to 70?

    For sure, your temperatures will get higher. This was designed for small space needs. Also, the max is about 75w, which is very low for a CPU cooler.
    For that size, it will be hard to find a HSF to cool your CPU adequately.
    However, you might want to look into water cooling. Is that possible for you?

    I'm looking for something $30 or under. It just has to beat the intel stock solution by 5-10 C and i'll be happy with it. Is that possible?

    Can you recommend me one that is also less than 95x95mm in length and width?

    The mini-itx board also won't allow a length and width over 95mm each so those 2 won't work either
  14. Am I not going to be able to get a cooler to outperform the intel stock cooler at those dimensions without getting water cooling?
  15. What's the brand and model of the motherboard?

    Asrock mini-itx H77 motherboard. Any larger than 95x95mm and it will block the GPU slot
  17. Notice that the heatsink block isn't located at the center. The side with the heatpipes extending upward would be oriented against the back of the graphics card. Take some measurements to see if you have enough clearance for the 25.75mm that the heatpipes extend out from where they enter the cooling fins.

    Oh I believe that will fit then. I guess the only other issue is the price. Is there anything $35 or under that will work ?
  19. The Cooler Master Vortex Plus (RR-VTPS-28PK-R1) is about 2mm too tall with the included fan. You would need to replace the fan with one that has a lower profile (i.e. less than 23mm) and has the same or better airflow.
