Alright, looking at the best option for under $100. Want it to keep things cool with OC at load, be quiet, and look as clean as possible.

Edit: I realize that should read NH-D14... sorry.

I say h60 since it's 50-60 and it's easily fitted in almost any case. If you have the room, silver arrow

So here is what I ended up getting:

I also picked up Win7 Home Premium 64bit and a tube of Arctic Silver 5 for the cooler.

I should have everything by the middle of next week. I plan to use the 212+ in my current Q6600 rig which I'm going to pass on to family... if I end up getting something better.

H100 has a $30 MIR from Newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181017

It will now be mine... in a few days smile.gif

I think it should beat out the hyper 212+...

I was fairly happy with it cooling wise at 4.5 GHz but it makes a lot of noise and vibrates when speed changing.
