More about what cooler
  1. any one?
  2. Both are good but the 9700 is getting a bit dated. I've heard good thing re: the H50. It sounds like a quieter option with about the same performance.

    Make sure to get the AM2/3 mount if you go that route.
  3. any other eg v10?
  4. noctua nd 14
  5. any other?
  6. You could try the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ with a second fan in push/pull. Pretty good temps for the cost.
  7. is the v8 good?
  8. I would take the 212+ over the V8, but then again the V8 doesn't get much love over here.
  9. what one should i go for?
