Want to upgrade my cpu cooling, need help deciding.
Built my first gaming PC a few weeks ago. The stock cooling kinda sucks and I want to upgrade my cpu fan to keep my temps low and be prepared for any possible OCing that I might wanna do. I have a price range of $30 - $60 and have been looking at these 3 options specifically:
They are all effective coolers. They will each keep you cool enough for any reasonable OC. Pick the cheapest which is thehyper212 I think. An alternative is the Xigmatek gaia at a similar price.
The liquid coolers suggest you mount them so you draw cool air in through the radiator. I don't much like that. Yes, it keeps your cpu cooler, but the heat builds up in the case where it will affect the graphics card. It is the graphics card that generates the most heat that needs to be dispelled.
I'm leaning towards the hyper 212 evo, however the antec liquid cooler actually uses the fan by the radiator as an exhaust not an intake like the corsair.
Check Corsair A70
looks a little expensive for air cooling
38 is expensive for u ? Well in that case get a hand fan
