~Help~ E8400 Budget Cooling?

Ok. I am stuck between these two heatsinks...

Ultra X-Wind CPU Fan Aluminum Socket

Arctic ACFZ7- PRO

I can get the Ultra X-wind for a total of 27 dollars inc. shipping

I can get the Arctic ACFZ7 for 32 dollars inc shipping.

I am planning to OC a e8400 to 3.6 ghz...

What should I buy?

If not any here, what would you recommend for a "less than $30 heatsink"

Thanks!

  1. For overclocking I wouldn't suggest any "less than $30 heatsink".

    Now, as long as your case will fit it:

    For $4.00 more than the Arctic you will never regret it.
  2. +1 to that utter dominance
  3. ^+1 for the S1283.
