Hello everyone, I'm piecing together a new comp and was wondering what would be an excellent heatsink for my system as I will be overclocking. Asus pt6 Deluxe v2, 300g VelocioRaptor hd, Evga Gtx 295, 6g corsair dominator, 1000w corsair psu. Also if anyone has suggestions about what im putting into the system im all ears. Trying to stick around the $2000 mark.
It's possible that some portions of one cooler are a knockoff of the other or worse, that both are a knockoff of a third, but the fan noise ratings are both around 10db lower than what most people would call "reality" upon listening.
Here's another sink that saves the OP $10 because he doesn't have to pay for an additional bracket:
BTW, I've avoided Xigmatek recommendations, even though it's a good cooler, because I haven't test fit it on many motherboards. I know it hits the Northbridge sink of several motherboards, I simply don't have a list.
