  1. fanless is difficult... especially for high TDP cpu's... any good watercooling (true watercooling) is usually more than 60 euro's

    i wouldn't reccomend water cooling for your cpu anyhow

    or the 212 EVO is good as well
  2. Any water cooling that will work better than a $20 hyper 212 will cost you somewhere in the ballpark of $200-$400.
  3. ^the H80 and H100 are better performers than the 212 evo, i still wouldn't recommend them, especially for a 95W cpu
  4. Well before i give you a link to the only cooler you will ever need, dont forget its important to consider case size so that it fits, so tell us your PC case so we can check, but heres your cooler.
