Thermalright True Spirit 120 - is it enough? Tags: Heatsinks Cooling Thermalright Overclocking Product Last response: December 27, 2011 4:09 PM in Overclocking Share Xolotl_72 December 27, 2011 12:19:44 PM hello everybody. I am about ready to start working on my first build. I have researched a lot over the last few weeks and I am about to pull to trigger on all the parts now. One of the things I am still not sure about is my CPU cooler. I am looking at the True Spirit 120, which is roughly 20€ here and seems to be the best 120mm fan cooler available for that price. I am not planning to do anything crazy but I want to try and get my i5 2500k running at 4.5 ghz. I am also trying to keep the noise as low as possible. will the True Spirit 120 be sufficient? the True Spirit 140 goes for around 37+ € , same for the Scythe Mugen 3 which are two of the more expensive coolers I was looking at. The case I will be using is very likely going to be either the Fractal Design Define R3 or CM Storm Trooper.

Realize that the aftermarket coolers you've mention will not fit in a Phantom if you install the 200mm sidefan. Xolotl_72 December 27, 2011 4:09:47 PM I am actually not going with the Phantom anymore from the looks of it. Thanks for mentioning it, I already read about larger cpu coolers not fitting properly if you use the big sidefan, just didn't realize those were already too big Can't find your answer ? Ask !
