Hi I want to replace my phenom X4 955 stock AMD cooler with something quiet. I have heard that the Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B CPU Cooler can be mounted fan less, would this work for my cpu? Also i don't overclock, all i want is the quietest cooler possible that's not too expensive and wont' break my motherboard when i go to LAN parties.
The MUX-120 and the Mugen are much quieter then the 212+.
The 212+ is an excellent cooler but i wouldn't consider it quiet.
I have one on one of my 3 rigs.
You can apply this 1156 cooler round-up to your cpu since everyone of these coolers now have AMD compatibility. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lga-1156-heatsink,2...
