Low cost quiet cpu cooler that will fit
Aug 1, 2012, 11:13 AM
Hey fellas, i'm looking for a cpu cooler recommendation.
CPU: i5 3570k
Mobo: Asrock extreme4
GPU: gigabyte windforce 7850
PSU XFX core ed 750w
in a Coolermaster Silencio 550 case
Since i'm running some powerfulish gear in a low airflow case i'm upgrading the stock 120mm 800rpm fan with a 140mm fractal designs silent series fan - are these any good?
Also I thought i'd better increase the power of my stock cpu cooler.
Obviously noise is an issue for me so what cpu cooler would you guys recommend? Considering i want it to be quieter than stock and also more powerful.
Also my case has a max CPU cooler height of154mm
Thanks a bunch for your help guys, i appreciate it

Have you looked at Silent PC Review? They don't have everything reviewed, but have some good charts of various parts with noise/performance analysis.
In my experience Scythe has some very quiet fans and heatsinks.
