Good Easy to install Cpu cooler for about 20-40$

hello as the title says looking for a good easy to in stall computer cpu cooler, I have work with many Hypo evo 212s and their are always a pain in the ass to install. I also wish to test other brand. I have ordered in an Fx-8320 machine. and Need a decent cooler for about 30$ thats will handle the small overclock from 3.5 to 4.0 - 4.2

Also please use a Canadian site.

  1. the hyper is the easiest one ive installed so i dont know how much easier it can get.
  2. Well, the principles behind most of the mounting systems of cooling solutions is essentially the same in their principles: you're going to have a backplate that somehow needs to connect to the mount platform via screws through the motherboard. From there its a matter of seating and attaching the heatsink.

    Do you have to completely unscrew your motherboard to swap backplates?

    no it is just the fact that the CM 212 has those annoying spring loaded screws and they always manage to piss me off. I also wish to try other brands.

    Xigmatek Gaia and the Enermax ETS-T40-TB are good options. They both use the same mounting system, which is fairly solid.

    If you spring for a little bit more, you could get the Thermalright True Spirit 120M.

    and no i dont normally, its just the hypo 212 has spring loaded screw for connecting the heatsink to the cpu and backplate, witch I always have a hell of a time puting in. I also want to try diffrent brands, thanks for the recommendations


    But do you think they will haddle the oc on my 8320 from 3.5 to 4.0/4.2 ?
  6. If the EVO can handle it, I do not see a reason why they should not be able to. A jump from 3.5 to 4.0ghz (FX-8350) is something the stock heatsink handles, so unless you have to feed your CPU a lot of voltages to achieve the same result, you should be fine.
  7. I hate those spring screws in the hyper 212 evo too. I've been looking to get the Xigmatek Dark Knight 2 but it's been sold out for a few weeks now...the black Enermax Twister cool is pretty good too, or the Gaia
