hi everyone,

Im here becouse im making my first GAMING RIG and i need a little help to get it done
here are my specs:

Phenom II X4 965 3.4Ghz C3 125w - Processor

GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P - Motherboard

XFX RADEON HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 - Graphics Card

1TB WD Caviar Black 7200 RPM 32MB SATA - Hard Drive

G.Skill 4GB DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24 - RAM

Asus Xonar D2 Ultra Fidelity - Sound Card

Corsair 850 Watts - Power Supply

Cooler Master HAF 932 Case


These are all the parts that i already have at home, as you can see the only thing i'm missing is a CPU COOLER?
Im looking to spend $80 dollars or less. i just want the best performance for that price.
I was thinking in one of these :

Thermalright True Black 120
Cooler Master v8
Prolimatech Megahalems
Thermalright IFX-14

Is there anyone who can suggest a better air cooler? or Wich one should i buy??
any help would be very welcome.
thanks

Prolimatech Megahalems is the best cooler money can get. Cooler Master Hyper 212+ on the other hand, is really impressive for it's ridiculous price.

I have a coolermaster v8 on my i7 920. Ill be honest im not very impresed with it. I got it for cheaper than normal price so i guess it wasn't a total waste of money.

You might have better luck with it on your AMD chip im told they do not run as hot as the i7's

All of the cpu heatsinks in your list are excellent. That makes it more difficult to choose one. There is an inherent problem. Actual results will vary. I guarantee it. I see it all the time in different technical reviews and in posts showing individual results.

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

Check out the technical reviews for your possible heatsinks. You can also use the Google embedded search feature to find more information about heatsinks.
