Can anybody recommend a good and well priced cooler for a i7 920. I want to start overclocking my 920 and I dont trust the stock cooler.

Would like to purchase around about £35 - £40.

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.

Heat Sink - For performance and ease of installation, the Prolimatech Megahalems fits both criteria.

If that's a budget breaker, look at the Xigmnatec S1283 or one of the top 3 or 4 here:

I would recomment u to stretch ur budget and get these:

The best cooler in ur budget is this one - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p...

and equip this cooler with these 2 fans in push/pull config http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p... and u will be there to beat high performances cooler in the market, even this one is the very high performance cooler, just trust me


or if the above suggestion will be out of ur budget so consider this one:

Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p...


or if the above one will also out of ur budget so buy this one:

Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p...



All The cooler which I have suggested u are of high performance according to ur budget priority-wise from top to down.


P.S. - U can't get better than these. :)

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! I have just purchased the Titan TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir CPU Cooler for £30, I've heard some pretty good reviews about this cooler and it was pretty cheap!

abhi_jollyguy - I was very tempted to get the Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme!
