  1. Hi.

    What's your budget? 90% of current coolers are universal, that means that you can use it in any socket (AMD or Intel). The Hyper 212+ is a very good cooler for price/performance, but exist others for a little more price that performs better.
  2. I got tired of trying and forked out 75 dolars for a thermaltake fripo oc
  3. frio oc has 2 130mm fans and seems great i was confused cause the ones at the top of the chart scoring 77 were actually the cheapest
