Good i5-760 cpu cooler for ~$20? Tags: Heatsinks Cooling CPUs Intel i5 Overclocking Last response: September 24, 2010 6:25 PM in Overclocking Share ms5555 September 23, 2010 6:59:50 PM Can you get a good cpu cooler for an i5 760 for $20 or less? The coolermaster hyper 212 looks pretty good but with shiping off newegg it's closer to $40. My goal is to modestly overclock an i5 760. Somewhere between 3.5 and 3.8ghz is my target. I have no idea what sort of cooling solution I'll need. Other hardware, I'm using a ASUS P7P55 mobo, 4gigs of ram (2x2gb) and a gtx 460 card in an antec 300 illusion case. I was wondering if these coolers would suit my needs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

The second and third cooler that you posted are suited for dual core CPU's, if you want a decent cooler for your 760 you will need to spend a bit more than 20.00$. 38.00$ shipped for the 212+ is still a great buy since it is among the best air coolers for the price. The Scythe SCMG-2100 is also a great cooler for the price =) m 0 l davcon a c 120 à CPUs a c 183 K Overclocking September 23, 2010 7:46:05 PM The TX3 is the best out of those 3 Hyper 212 Plus Universal -$23.99 http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-RR-B10-212P-G1-Univ... m 0 l Related resources Good Easy to install Cpu cooler for about 20-40$ - Forum what cpu cooler for fx8320 on m5a97 r2.0 with high profile dimms - Forum Cpu cooler under 20. - Forum 20$ Am3+ cpu cooler - Forum Help overclocking i5-760 : What Cooler Do I Need ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
