my pc ran nice and quiet during winter but now that summer is here temps are up and my pc is hot and noisy, I am sporting a Amd Phenom2 965 with the packaged cooler, having the raidmax quantum I get good airflow to the rest of my components but my cpu cooling system is just not cutting it, causing the undesired noise, unfortunately I have a strict budget so I can only afford the following at my supplier:
I want to know what one is best and if it would be worth upgrading from my stock cooler, as looks the last one is best (I think so anyway) and is the only one purely copper but only has 3 heat dispersion pipes
I'm not familiar with Deepcool products,however i have a 212+ and it cools very well .
It's a little louder then i like but much quieter then stock.
I've heard and read good things about the Zalman Performa.
My vote too goes to the Zalman CNPS10X.. Performa, quiet or extreme is your choice.. Other than that, i really like the design and look of the 9700 LED.. You can consider that also for the same reasons..
