Hi, I would like to know what cooler to buy, I need a slim one with enough cooling to stay around 60-75 °c. I wan't to overclock to 4.2 - 4.5.
I have done a bit of research and found these two:
1- be quiet! Shadow rock slim......
2- Scythe Ashura.
Here are my component, just in case and I would appreciate a cooler with Blue or black fans.
Mother board-Msi Z97 Gaurd pro
PSU- EVGA SuperNova 650W 80+ Gold Modular
HDD- 1 TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM
GPU- R9 280 Sapphire 3 GB
Case-CM Storm Scout 2
RAM- 8 GB Crucial Ballistic Sports XT
If there is a problem with the build then please tell me as I am going to buy this, not bought yet.
The best CPU cooler for the money that would work with your setup is the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005O65JXI. This will easily keep temps at the level you want and it's also a relatively slim cooler.
Thank for your help but I did think about the 212 Evo but I want I have a higher budget so if a nice looking one was available then that would be good.
Will this be better than a 212 Evo, cause a mate of mine has a CNPS mid fanned one, and it runs dead silent at 4.5GHz http://www.ncix.com/detail/zalman-cnps9900-d-f-dual-fan...
