Best cooler for Phenom II x6 1090T? & MoBo Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I want a new cooler for my Phenom II x6 to replace the stock cooler and hit a decent overclock (3.7 - 4Ghz) and I was tempted by the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus. I am not really restricted by budget, but I'd rather not spend over £50.

Also I have a mATX M4A78LT-M which is a 760G chipset, is this holding me back from doing any overclocking?

Well, the cooler I would recommend is the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Advanced. I like it over the Hyper 212 plus as it's not much of fiddle to fit and looks awesome tongue.gif The way they compare performance-wise is within the margin of error.

As far as over clocking on that board in particular, I'm not sure. Maybe someone else will help you with that.

Hope this helps,

Doc.

Cool, i'll have a look. What are Corsair A70s or H60s like? Anybody else got any suggestions?

Please note, I'm using an mATX board. smile.gif Do i really need a new MoBo if I only want a medium overclock? It seems to be running fine at 3.4Ghz on stock cooling and volts.worriedsmiley.gif
