Im getting a 960t with a MSI am3+ mobo and am wondering if the RCX-Z1 is compatible. This is the best CPU I can't get cause I am on a budget.

id recomend that its a bit more than you had budgeted from the other cooler but its is the best cooler for money out there as long a it fits in your case.seen many overclockers go to 4ghz and above with this cooler problem free



Dang ok thanks

So that CPU cooler would work. Im not trying to overclock it maybe to 3.2 but I am going to unlock my CPU from 4 to 6 cores and the amd stock cooler sucks
