Hi all

Im building a PC for someone and have everything decided but the cooler.
Im after a budget cooler, less than £30 preferably.
I am planning on over clocking the 4670K up to between 4.0-4.5Ghz depending on voltage required for the chip I get.

I was looking at coolers and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and the Cooler Master Hyper 412S seem popular.

I then have seen two new coolers. The Raijintek EreBoss and Deepcool Lucifer (see links below)

Raijintek EreBoss
Deepcool Lucifer

They both have 140mm fans, that are rated quite quiet that is good and are both big, which is generally a good thing for cooling.

I have seen a couple of reviews but there are not many. Anyone know much about them and would recommend them, as they seem really good value? Do you think they will out perform either the Hyper 212 EVO or 412S?

Any other recommendations are welcome

Personnally, I would take the Hyper 212 EVO.

I recommend buying a bigger heatsink if you want to overlock to 4 GHz tough.

My suggestions:

- Phanteks PH-TC12DX

- Noctua NH-D14

- Phanteks PH-TC14PE

When it comes to CPU cooling, you get exactly what you pay for!

Don't expect massive overclocking headroom, with playing cards flapping on your bicycle spokes! :)
