The best cooling product under $20?

I am looking for something to cool my computer, if it is a fan the only requirement is that it is 120mm or under, it must be on Tiger Direct and like the thread title says it must be under $20. I will post my case so you know what items are compatible and what is not.

Case: Diablotek Elite ATX Mid Tower - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7200803&CatId=1509

    AMD Phenom II x6 1045T and the fan also has to be a 3 pin.
  3. Do you need to cool the case, or cool the CPU? If you're looking for a better CPU cooler, HardwareSecrets just reviewed a couple of cheap Gammax / Logisys coolers, and they did well. If you're looking just for fans, I have had good results from Scythe. They offer models
    I just looked at your case. If you have not replaced the PSU-shaped object that comes in it, please do so before you make any other changes. Diablotek does not make any power supply that I would consider safe to attach to delicate electronics, such as a computer. If money is tight, a 380W Antec Earthwatts or 400W Corsair CX would be solid, inexpensive choices.
    Otherwise, Silenx offers decent fans. This one looks good: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1148932&CatId=802

    Lmao yes one of the first things I did was replace the PSU so don't worry about that, but I don't know if I need to cool the case or the CPU. I just know that the temperature gets up towards 65 decrees Celsius when I am trying to overclock my CPU. So with that do you have any other suggestions? I appreciate it thank you!
