Hyper evo 212 if you want to save yourself a lot of money to see the same performance you would get from an average liquid cooler such as the H60. H75 is a pretty good CPU cooler and would allow for overclocking.

I have a 8150 overclocked from stock 3.6GHz to 4.3GHz and use a Corsair H80i. Ambient room temps are 20c. Idle at 4.3GHz is 30c , gaming is around 40-45c depending on the demand of the game To give you some reference. This is for a comparision as the 8320 stock is 3.5GHz (Turbo 4.0GHz).

The Corsair H100i falls into your budget and is a closed loop liquid cooler.

If you don't want to use liquid I would go with what Azrael47 suggested and get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo.

The hyper evo 212 is pretty much on par with the H55. Closed loop coolers either get the new H75 or H80 and H100. If you want air coolers Noctua and Cooler Master do some good ones.

The Hyper 212 (65.75C) can't touch those three ...... Phanteks (51.75), Noctua DH-14 (52.25), Silver Arrow (52.5). That test was the biggest spread I have seen, I usually see at least 7 - 10C tho moving from one to the other depending upon CPU and orientation.

The Phanteks and Noctua are very similar .... the Phanteks performs a little better / comes in various color schemes to match ya case / MoBo and some peeps consider the Noc fans fugly.

$75 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$90 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If ya considering a Corsair twin fan job, watch ... er better said "listen" to this video

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2013/03/12/swiftech-h220-vs...

CPU hits 55% load at about 1:15 mark in the video .... at that point noise is a bit much for me.....at 75% I fell like I'm on the tarmac at an airport



No single fan AIO water can get anywhere near the better air coolers and the double fan ones while cooling to about the same level .... can be extremely loud (H100 hits 60 + dBA) and ya pay way more.

Yes Jack, but we are comparing a 20 pound CPU cooler to a much more expensive CPU cooler. The 8320 can easily be overclocked to 4.2 on a Hyper Evo 212, I have a H60 on a 6300, and I have it overclocked to 4.6 and it never goes over 50 degrees Celsius when gaming. Plus the results that you have shown are not relevant as we are comparing an 8320 to a hot running chipset from intel, try and keep results relevant in the future.

Ummm.... that's ironic, your questioning relevance ? Did you read the OP ?

1. The OP didn't ask for an adequate cooler, he asked for the "best cooler".....the words "best" and Hyper 212" can not be used in the same sentence which I think should be obvious given the 14C spread...... between the four numbers ..... 65.75C, 51.75, 52.25 and 52.5 which of the four is "relevant" to the OP's stated "best" criteria ? A temp of 65.75 is not better than 51.75

2. The OP's stated budget is £100 ..... so, to my mind anyway, recommending any $30 (£18) coolers....well just wouldn't be .... er .... "relevant" to the OPs inquiry.

So, let me make an alternative suggestion ..... in the future...... try and make suggestions that are "relevant" and / or actually responsive to the original post, not replacing his desired criteria with your own, and not criticize others for giving answers which are, in point of fact, responsive to the OPs stated criteria.
