  1. Best performance/ Value options -
    CM Hyper 212+
    Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.B

    Other high-end options - Noctua D14/ Zalman ZALMAN CNPS10X Extreme/ Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B with Scythe Slipstream fans or other high-performance fans...
  2. You can use this chart to compare the performance of cpu coolers:

    I particularly like the value of the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ at ~$30.

    If you don't want to spend that much, you can get the Hyper TX3 for ~$20. It still should be an improvement over the stock HSF. (Free super saver shipping if you spend $25)

    A step up would be the Zaward Vapor 120 for ~$45. It's extremely efficient for its size (no other cooler this size can compete), uses a unique and well designed golf-ball style fan, and includes clips for attaching a second fan.

  3. Think i'll go with the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ @ $30
    cooler must not exceed 7 inches in height.
    and the Cooler Master V8 I really like but its $100. :fou:

    Good choice you won't be disappointed!
    No loss the V8 is an average cooler anyways and worth about $50 tops.
  5. +1 The V8 is just an average cooler...
    CM Hyper 212+ is far better in terms of value/ performance...
