Hello, i have a Cooler Master N520 CPU Cooler on a Phenom II 965. It gets around 50-55c max at 3.8ghz @ 1.35v, and that wasn't much of an improvement from stock. I can spend around 70$-80$ max, would like to try to get below that. I would like to get a new CPU cooler so i can reach 4ghz or higher. I can reach 4ghz now, but it is already running a little warm. Does anyone have any recommendations? Any suggestions help, Thank you!
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 @3.8ghz (1.35v)
Google it, probably the best option and it isn't loud at all. Outperforms many closed loop water coolers.
Thanks, Is there any cooler close in performance, but a little cheaper? anything below 70$ shipped i can afford right now, I will try to get the Noctua NH-D14 tho. I should be getting a little more money soon tho
