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

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.

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=N82E168...
It's compare to a H80 Corsair which is $90 bucks

You will need a 120m to mount this on your case

Budget wise not a lot about £30

Will it handle a bit of overclocking? or will I need to go into liquid cooling or a higher performance heatsink/fan

well the noctua is is nice, but depends if he wants water or air coolingé

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.

is 55$ toomuch? i can always look for something cheaper dude.

January 12, 2013 11:32:20 PM

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.

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.
