Wo! Cooler upgrade! again!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I need a new cooler. Reason for that is, I left my PC with my cousin, who offered to add a couple of fans in it while I went out with my girlfriend, but he tried to fit that 220cm fan on the side panel but the heat pipe/tower design wouldn't fit.

Guess what. He decided he would cut the top of the heat pipes. Now, I need a new cooler and don't feel like removing the mobo. any recommendations?

* I'm typing from my sig rig atm with some 65W cooler from AMD and it's not working.

Xigmatek with some sick LED fans if your looking for something pretty. (p/p obviously)

Or you can go with a Hyper 212+ p/p

They are the most common! Or if your heart desires... watercooling!

I might consider a 212 but I might want to install that shiny led 220mm fan . and it's a bit too tall. Nor do I want to remove my mobo to install a backplate.

He should not be allowed to EVER touch a computer again.

As for your cooler, have a mate with a Hyper 212, it's pretty good for the price. Otherwise an H60 would work too - With some push/pull fans. Just depends on how much you have to spend.
