I am currently running a Core2Duo E6300 (Socket 775) overclocked at 3 Ghz (from 1.8 Ghz). I use air cooling: Arctic Freezer 7 Pro. Unfortunately one the push pins of the heatsink broke off, due to mishandling on my part. Thus, the heatsink is now kind of "shaky" and when I am moving the case of my computer just a little bit, it may fall off. I decided to get a new cooler with better performances, instead of trying to fix this one.
I want an air cooler (with heatsink) which has:
a) a good performance
b) is not too loud
c) is not too heavy or big
d) is not too pricey
e) is a good investment for the future, meaning it should fit on a socket 1366 mainboard as well (AM3 support would be a plus)
Can you suggest me around 5 coolers, which fit my requirements?
@ChrisR34000, You have got the the O/C guru answer you...
If I were you I would stick with his suggestions when it comes with overclock...
And this question is to overshocked-->
Does the Scythe Mugen 2 hold good against the CCTF ??? I saw a article on xbits which had the special mention of the Scythe for its performance and price...but that article dint have the CCTF...So there was not direct comparison in performance between these 2...
I just meassured my case and the Mugen 2 will not fit in.
According to the specs of the Mugen 2, it has a height of 158 mm. The case has a width of 185 mm, from which you have to subtract the height of the mainboard, the space between mainboard and case and the height of the CPU.
