I have a e8200 with a stock cooler that is very bad, in idle 55 and in load 75. I overclock it as much as I can so i need an advice what to buy
I was thinking to buy a heatsink from thermalright and a cooler from scythe but im not sure/
What do you recommend ? I have an antec 900 case
The Antec 900 case is is of the most popular pc cases with gamers. It is 8.1 inches wide so it can accomodate one of those 160mm tall tower style heatsinks that are popular with gamers. It will be a tight fit but it should be okay.
Here is a link to a recent Tom's Hardware article with useful information about 10 popular cpu heatsinks:
Thanks, I made 2 choices and don't know which one to choose:
First one is a Prolimatech Megahalems rev. B heatsink with a Scythe Slip Stream 120 mm 1900 rpm
And the second one a Zalman CNPS10X Flex with a Scythe Slip Stream Slim, 120 x 120 x 12 mm, 1200rpm.
Which one is better ?
