  1. Hey there sinbad

    I'd highly recommend the Noctua NH-U9B SE2

    I just recently switched from the AMD stock cooler on my Phenom 955 which was ridiculously loud, to the Noctua. I LOVE the Noctua - deathly silent and keeps the CPU frosty cold! :love: It's in more of the pricy range, but I think it's definitely worth it!
  2. Hi Sinbad... could you specify CPU, case, mobo and memory so i can suggest??? also budget if you have one???
  3. CPU: Phenom II X4 955
    Case: Antec Nine Hundred Two
    Mobo: Asus M4A78T-E
    Memory: Kingston Value RAM 4GB PC3-10600 DDR3

    Budget: under $100

    Also I have been looking at the Scythe Orochi Rev. B CPU Cooler, it looks pretty good but i'm not sure if the thing would be to heavy for my mobo. Does anyone have any experience with it?

    if you want the best look fir Thermalright Silver Arrow or Noctua NH D14... these are two of the best air coolers ATM and your mobo and memory are compatible with both coolers for clearance...

    220mm wide case will ne no problem in accomodating both these coolers... Mind you the noctua is pretty big but shouldnt be problem with your rig... and both are sub $100 in most parts of the world...

    And almost forgot... both are silent to a whisper but i would suggest the silver arrow (even though i own the other one) since it has PWM fans and both fans are 140mm...
