CM V6GT for $45 or..? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
No H50?

I had the Thermaltake Frio and it was a great cooler which cooled my 1055T at 4GHz easily. Also have a good old Titan Fenrir which is a great cooler for cheap as well. But honestly you have a great cooler that looks as well as it performs. That would have been my next purchase if I didn't get this H50.

I owned a V6 non-GT. The thing is designed to use dual high pressure fans. As in, don't buy if you want quiet. You should look for bigger fins with more spacing if you want low noise. (Dual towers are quite quiet also)
Once I got a second fan for it, it was amazing. The V6 GT starts out amazing.

So if you can get it for $45 shipped, I give it a thumbs up. However, the true spirit 140 should be right around the corner...

Totally agree.

Check out the Corsair A70. It comes with 2 fans out of the box for push/pull and last time I checked it's on sale on Newegg for $27.99 AR.

When the V6GT was introduced it was more like $75, and one review not enough??

Here's two more.

Eh, I think I might just end up holding off on a new CPU cooler for a few months unless I upgrade my CPU/mobo to something else. Thanks for all the input guys!

Can I suggest Scythe coolers ?
I personally have the Mugen 3 on my 955 BE @ 3.8 GHz, idling at 30 degrees
comes with single fan or you can add one for push/pull, but since the cpu fan is blowing into the case exhaust fan, i didnt see the point in doing p/p config.
really quiet low rpm fan might i add, doesnt really spin past 1500 RPM
the ninja 2 comes with a rear bracket speed controller.
Mugen 2 got great reviews and the 3 is relatively new.
you can probably find one cheaper than the V6.

I thought the Mugen 2/3 were just pointlessly large..?
