Whats up guys. Soon I will be overclocking my i7 and I need to get a decent AIR cooler, so I was wondering if some of you could give me some help here.
As I am looking some reviews, the 2 best seemed to be the megahalem or the Thermalright 120.Is that right? Wich would you recomend? Is there any other that in your opnion is better than those?
Thanks in advance

The scythe mugen 2, xigamtek dark knight, and cooler mater v8 are among some of the best i7 coolers, and each of them costs around $50 or less. All of them are fairly silent, running below 30dba.

You'll definitely want to install a high quality cpu heatsink for overclocking.

Here is a link to an excellent web site with a lot of useful information about cpu heatsinks:

http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm

There are technical reviews for each heatsink listed. You can use the embedded search engine to find information about socket specific heatsinks.

I still use an original Thermalright Ultra 120. It was one of the original if not the original tower style heatsinks. Results are outstanding for me. The newer version is the Ultra 120 Extreme. It's another good one.
