Looking into getting a new CPU cooler for my AMD FX 6100.
Am using the stock cooler right now and my temps are between 14 - 30 degrees
Any recommendations?
Cheers guys

  1. Hyper 212+ Evo. It's cheap and it works awesome. You can add another fan to it to make it cool even better and it still costs less than it's competition.
  2. whats ur budget for a new cooler and will u be overclocking?

    Cool Master Hyper 212+ Evo is good
    But that is $30 buck
    When you can buy a water cooling system for a extra $10 bucks
    Called Cooler Master Seidon 120M
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103179
    It's compare to a H80 Corsair which is $90 bucks

    You will need a 120m to mount this on your case
  4. yes, whats the rest of ur specs, mobo, case, and the rest of ur specs?
  5. CPU - AMD FX 6100
    Mobo - Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3
    8GB RAM (2x4GB)
    750watt PSU
    NVIDIA GTX 650
    the case is this: http://p.playserver1.com/ProductImages/2/5/5/0/3/0/0/3/30030552_300x300_1.jpg
  6. Budget wise not a lot about £30
  7. Will it handle a bit of overclocking? or will I need to go into liquid cooling or a higher performance heatsink/fan
  8. well whats ur full budget?
  9. I can push up to about £50 am on a tight budget right now :(

    that should be within ur budget mate :)
  11. Noctua D14

    http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/thermaltake_water20_performer_pro/4.htm

    The Noctua D14 beats the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer by a bit but it is safer(no water leaks),ends up cooling you ram and mobo as well and the price is similar:

    Check the specifications of your case first thout cause it may not fit or require you to take off the side fan.
  12. well the noctua is is nice, but depends if he wants water or air coolingé
  13. I don't really have a preference to be fair as long as I can lower my temps and have the option to OC I'm not fussed... But price is a big factor right now sadly.
  14. is 55$ toomuch? i can always look for something cheaper dude.
  15. Honestly at the moment yeah... Lost my job an that so monies tight right now, spent most of my last wage on my new rig haha.
  16. Going back to the Noctua I doubt it would fit into my case, my PSU is top mounted and I can't be blowing extra money on a new case as well. Clearance with my RAM wouldn't be a problem the modules are pretty small.
  17. hmm, than the hyper 212+ would be sufficient :)
