Perfect Aircooler for me - coming from watercooling

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I was wondering what the best choice of aircooler is for the moment. Now I have a watercooling, but I don't overclock anymore and find it a bit overkill to cool a stock speed CPU. That's why i'm going to sell the watercooling and find me an aircooler.

Anyone have suggestions ?

thnx in advance.

if you're going stock speeds, then the stock HSF would work just fine. If not, a cheap cooler like the CM 212+ would be your best bet.

Well let's say not a 4Ghz overclock on the i5-750, but something around 3-3,2 Ghz.

I hope it's not in the 700D, it has terribad airflow setup for aircooling as its a WC case.

My vote is for the Zalman CNPS10x, costs $5 more than the CM 212+

for that little OC, even the HSF would still eb a good option, as i doubt you'd have to get more than stock volts to get 400 MHz.

I stand that the CM 212+ is a god all around cooler, except for extreme OCing or really hot chips

Srry for the double, but I can't find a 212+ anymore where I live.

Is there a good replacement ?
