Get the answer wiinippongamer a b à CPUs February 12, 2010 7:05:23 PM i'd go fo the coolermaster hyper 212 + it's best price/penformance heatsink right now. for just $30 and it keeps my 4.0ghz 1.5v phenom ii 955 at 63C after 4 hours of prime95 torture. the true 120 it's just a big named overpriced piece of hardware, for 3 times the price, it only gets you 2-3C cooler that the hyper 212, dark knight and other 30-40$ coolers. plus if you pair it with a good set of 120mm fans the thing even beats the king of kings, the prolimatech megahalems, which is also extremely overpriced. think it's BS?, see here: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-r... get it here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... capt_taco a b à CPUs February 12, 2010 8:59:43 PM Well, the Hyper 212 is about the best bang for the buck out there. If you're super-concerned about noise levels, Thermaltake's Silent 775 do an excellent job cooling in my experience, and are almost unnoticeable. But what are your temps like right now? If you're not running hot to begin with, there's really no reason to mess with it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
