Hi all,
So, I've been working on overclocking my E7400 with my stock cooler. I'm up to 3.6 GHz, but I don't feel comfortable going any higher without an aftermarket cooler.
Right now I'm looking at a Cooler Master V8 and a Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme.
I'm mostly looking for coolers that are $60 or less, but I'm willing to spend a little more if the performance gain is noticeable.
I'd prefer to stick to air cooling right now....I really don't want to screw around with water cooling...

Any suggestions as to what I should get?

Thanks.

Here is a link to a very good web site with a lot of useful information about cpu heatsinks that will help you make an informed decision:

You can use the Google embedded search feature at the web site to find more information about heatsinks for specific cpu sockets.

I was poking around on that website earlier...
They seem to like the Tuniq, but I saw reviews that said the V8 kept things cooler than the Tuniq...I tend to trust FrostyTech because of their test setup.
I haven't seen too many customer reviews of the Tuniq (i.e. Newegg), whereas the V8 has quite a few. That kinda scares me a little. (Or am I just overreacting?)
