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...
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?)
