I have a core i3 Sandy Bridge 2120, and another PC for my girlfriend a celeron E2100.
The celeron has a standard heatsink, but the fans blades broke off due to too many years of abuse, i strapped a system fan to the heatsink but its noisy.
My question is, a Blizzard T2 Mini or a CM Hyper 101 vs standard cooling for the i3 system, since i want to get another cooler for my i3 and simply place the i3's stock fan on the Celerons Heatsink. I am scepticle about dirt cheap after market cooling.
Would a Blizzard T2 Mini or a Hyper 101 or a Vortex 211Q or P be better or worse than the standard cooling unit, since i cant find any information comparisons. Otherwise im going to just get a Coolermaster X dream LGA775 for my second PC.
inb4 everyone just says get a hyper 212. , i know is a good cheap cooler, but i would prefer to spend as little as possible since its a second PC and im not guna modify my very quiet main case
yes, but my question still remains, what the performance of any of those coolers vs stock cooler
They are no better than the stock cooler. If your stock cooler fan is failing, they are a reasonable replacement. Cooling will be adequate, but under load, any cooler with a 92mm fan will spin up and be noisy.
