  1. OCZ vendetta has been doing well in benchmarks and falls under $50
  2. personally i have a Noctua NH-C12P and i love it... it cools my 8Gbs of ddr3 and set to very low i have temps of 45 idle and 55-60 maxed out... if you have a horizontal case, the heat pipes will provide even better cooling
  3. how can i tell if

    this zalman

    will fit in my case ?
  4. Core Contact Freezer

    is great for me idle @ 30C and Load at @45C with fan set to low unlocked to 4 cores and oc to 3.5 w/ 1.55 volts
  5. This one worked for me XIGMATEK HDT-RS1283 120mm CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233012
    but if you want one with better airflow (louder though) Toms Hardware on their System Builder Marathon on the medium and low end Phenom II based PC's used a similar model but with a higher airflow fan this one

    However it's orientated so the air flow goes to the top of the case which was no problem for me since my case (COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case) had the largest fan on the top
