  1. bit tech is right, the FRIO is a very good cooler
  2. if you could say best i5 and amd 955 that would be nice
  3. H50 and H70 are both over priced imo. The Frio is an excellent cooler if you can find it. What case are you using? Also what RAM?

    the FRIO or Noctua NH D14 whichever you can find the better price on.

    the cooler master 212+ is a great budget cooler but tends to be hard to find & over priced over seas

  5. The Frio is an excellent cooler a little on the loud side 50db but that can be adjusted.
    Also note it's 165mm tall so you'll need a case 8.6" wide or more.
    As with any aftermarket cooler select your ram wisely anything over 41mm can be problematic.
  6. So, i guess the CM690 got problem fitting this cooler? Just checked the specs is only 8.38" Wide.
