Cooler for NZXT M59

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I have been trying to find a good cpu fan for my sig build. The problem is that with the side fan on the M59, I can barely fit 157mm fans. Because of this, I want to get a good low profile fan. The reason I want to buy a new one is because I feel like the stock AMD fan is too noisy (possibly a bad bearing). The ones I'm currently looking at are:

ZALMAN CNPS9500A - $48

Scythe Samurai ZZ SCSMZ-2000 - $38

XIGMATEK LOKI SD963 - $24.99

Cooler Master GeminII S - $38

Scythe SCSK-1100 - $35

My final goal is to keep the temps around where they are right now, unless I can bring it down (38C no load, 43C under load), with the minimum amount of noise. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

I would consider one of these two as well:

I didnt mention price being an issue earlier but having seen the coolers I kind of wanted, I thought <$50 would have been sufficient. Is it really worth it to go that big and drop $75 and over? I'm not looking to overclock.

don't get the CNPS9500 it's just not competitive nowadays at that price. go with an xigamatek dark knight for that price.

EDIT: wow, it's actually 15 after MIR. that's an amazing deal.

I would have considered it but its too big for my case. (Cant do 159mm Height, which eliminates A LOT of coolers unfortunately...)

The only thing I have against buying that one is that its really new and i want to see how it works out for others on here. Maybe the price will drop too.
