I can afford both of them but I would prefer the V8 since it's cheaper and has $10 rebate but if the H50 will keep my CPU cooler than I'm all up for spending the premium amount. Also, I'll be using a Phenom 955 overclocked to 4.0GHz! Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't get either of those units.

Xigmatek Intel Core i7 compatible THOR'S HAMMER HDT-S126384 CPU Cooler
  • Out of stock at newegg but can be found else where and if you live near MicroCenter its cheaper and I know they carry it.

    Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

    Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme Universal CPU Cooler 120mm

    These coolers are much better then the V8 and the H50 both of those are way overpriced and do not give the best cooling.

    Well, the Prolimatech Megahalems cooler does not come with AM3 brackets... the Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme does but from reading the reviews, people have been commenting on how large it is and how much it weighs and sometimes I see reviews of people actually getting better cooling with the stock cooler! Whats up with that?

    Or the Coolermaster Hyper 212+

    It's a favourite budget cooler around here.

    I like the h50 a lot of people don't seem to like it, but its beaten all the big hunks of metal i've used before

    Most people wouldn't think about simply adding a second fan to the h50. They would rather pay 300 for a custom build and get the same results
