Hey guys I was wondering if someone could point out the best sub $30 low profile cpu cooler..Id like to do some overclocking with my x3 450 but the temps i get with the stock heatsink/fan are not too my liking. So far I found this: http://www.amazon.com/Scythe-Shuriken-Rev-B-SCSK-1100-P...
Tell us what case you're using would be very helpful.
Also the review thyrokio posted would have no bearing on your set-up.
The review uses a i7 130w cpu.
No one in their right mind would use a Shuriken for that application.
Your cpu is 95w and runs quite a bit cooler.
I'm not saying the Shuriken is the best unit out there but it would certainly perform better then your stock unit.
