should i hold off?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok so i OC'd finally to 3.6gh and my phenom is chugging at 49c idle i know it can be lower but the stock case fans on the 600t arent doing justice.

thinking about ordering 2 megaflows but for 60 bucks, i'm going to wait for a sale lol unless you guys can recommend some sweet 15$~ 200m fans. i was looking at xiggys but idk i like the megaflows better.

also, i want to update my aging zalman.

thought about going corsairs route of AIO liquid cooling, or that eco brand (i forgot atm) but i like air cooling!

so i was looking at the hyper 212+ my brother owns it (never installed it) but he's going to install it on his soon because his stock cooler isnt holding out well either, so i can't ninja it.

whats another good option for air cooling my trust phenom? i want to hit 4.0ghz so cost isnt THAT important for quality.

i know the noctua is bauss saus, but is there a cheaper solution that will yield same if not on par results?

and should i plunge and get a decent fan controller for muh new fans?

49'c is too hot for being idle. Get the Corsair A70. Fans are great and has copper pipes. $40
