Add £20 and get something like the NH D14.

Hope it helps ;)

how much can you get an H70 for ...or maybe an H100?

60 for an H60 is not a good deal mate since the cooler is crap, the H70 was better at its job.

A $25 hyper 212 will cool just as well as the H60. I say don't waste your money. NH D14 was a good suggestion, too. But the point is that your basic mid-range vertical-style air cooler is going to do just as well as a closed-loop water cooler for much cheaper.

I love the h60, for me it's not so much about the performance, because yeah it cools about as good as an air cooler for more money, but the part I love is that it gives a much cleaner look and opens the case up for better airflow throughout.

Umm I had the hyper 212 its good for bang for buck but its not bearly as good my h60 its overclocking potentials were pretty weak even when I had 2 fans on it turned my 3.3ghz cpu up to 4ghz max and then it would hover around 50 degrees celcius i stressed tested my H60 goes up to 4.8 maybe more I havent tried butb it only hover 36 degrees from that im not saying ur wring this is just my experience. H60 was amazing

I have a question whats ur case cuz these coolers are pretty massive that they are reccomending you and are u a hardcore over clocker bcuz I had the H60 and overclocking.potentials are quite nice on it... And easy to install and if u like to c ur cpu at low temps but it cost quite a bit as well. So I would go with the thermaltake im it still has oc abilities not as much but temperatures will remai managable from mild overerclocking and its cheaper or you could wait like I did for a sale my h60 was on sale for 30$.
