Ninja 3 vs MUX-120 vs CM 212 Tags: Heatsinks Cooling CPUs Overclocking Last response: August 20, 2011 5:36 AM in Overclocking Share Arkanus August 20, 2011 5:22:56 AM Hello everyone. It has been a while since the last time I bought a CPU cooler, and now that I'm building a new gaming PC I think that it's time to learn a bit about the new coolers available. After reading a good bunch of reviews, I can't decide between the following ones: -Scythe Ninja 3 -Cooler Master Hyper 212+ -Thermalright MUX-120 Black Which one do you recommend me? The Ninja 3 and Mux-120 look gorgeous (and sadly, kinda huge), but performance is what really matters after all. The CPU will be a Phenom II X6 1100T. I'm not planning to OC it at all. Case will be a Thermaltake MK-Chaser 1, which should be big enough for tall coolers (big enough for a Ninja 3?). Thanks a lot in advance.

Any one of those three coolers will work fine. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources scythe ninja 3 VS CM Hyper 212 hyper evo Forum 212 EVO Vs.
