CPU coolers

Hey everyone. I am getting a 3770k CPU and was wondering what a decent cooler would be for 60 to 80 bucks. I've heard hit of miss things with the h60 what's does everyone think? I do plan on ocing a little. Case room I don't think will be a prob using a df-85

  1. Water cooler or air cooling around 60 bucks, best advice?
  2. Put few more $$ and get the best cooler out there.

    Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

  3. BTW, with this cooler, u can have 4.7GHz OC for 24/7 run.

    Best CPU in the segment deserves the best cooler : )

    That is no place to get in to saving mode!
  4. Just afraid of the weight on the 1155 socket

    HSF designers will always keep in mind weight when building their products. How often do you ever hear news of someones HSF destroying their mobo due to weight.

    I mean its like the fear of shark attacks. More people die per year falling out of their bed then death due to shark attacks.
  6. Non sense, if mounted properly, its just fine.
  7. BTW, whats your mobo?
  8. And there are also heavier coolers than this one : )
  9. Cool I mean it only 20 bucks more then the h60

    Than its for different reason, isn't it?

    This cooler is used with systems like yours, and it would be shame for ASUS, if it would not hold!

    That's great mobo. I have the Z68 version.

    And it will have no problem with that cooler.
  13. H60 is no good for this CPU @ 4.4+GHz OC.

    Noctua would be silent and H60 will be loud already.
