Hello I've had my fx-4170 for a bit now enjoy it quite a bit from my previous phenom II 550. But I'm looking to start overclocking it a bit to increase frame rates. I know I need to get a after market cooler first though. So my question as of now is which do you guys think would be better, since this is the first time I've bought a after market cooler. (size of the case is an issue so fan has to be 92mm it seems)
I would skip that cooler. I put one on my friends cpu and it worked as good as the one he had on before. The previous cooler costs $29. There are a ton of 92mm coolers out there that work better than this Zalman, at half the cost. Get something from Arctic Cool or the Cooler Master 92mm version of the Hyper 212.
