what do you recommend? which cpu cooler is the best ?


price: $80 and down
Mobo : micro (i can get a new one, but again i don't want to waste money on already dead 775)
ram with tall heat spreaders(again i don't want to waste more money on ddr2 ram)

I'll be getting a new case ( haven't decided yet) :) 

so far I've only looked at h50

h50 sucks
these are one of the best
thermalright venomous-x
prolimatech megashadow or megahalms rev.B
cogage arrow (supports 3 fans)

all these have almost the same performance

I like the Xigmatek 1283, one version is called the Dark Knight. It is tall like most of them but I had no problem fitting it into my Antec 300 case. If the fan hits your heat spreaders then you have 2 options- move the fan up slightly which the rubber attachment things will allow, or put the fan on the back side of the heat sink and let it pull air out instead of pushing it through. I've built i5 machines with it done both ways and they both work fine. (Actually the raised fan was with the 1284 heat sink). Some people said the "puller" arrangement wouldn't work as well as a "pusher", but it did work fine and kept the temps as low as a normal pusher arrangement.

Thermaltake Duorb....... if you can find one. Best one I ever used for 775 processor. Quiet too.
