WHAT TO BUY

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i am currently running my Intel I5 760 at 3.2ghz on a stock cooler, but i am intending to aim above the 4.2ghz mark, now i now i need a new and better cooler to enable me to do this, and keeping with the air cooling i am intending to use the AKASA VENOM, not only because it looks sweet, but because from as far as i can gather it will be more than capable of running at these speeds with no problems, if anyone who reads this can suggest a better cooler for the same price or less, or can give me a valid reason to keep away from this cooler please leave a mesage below, Thanks

for the price around that, get the NZXT Havik, it performs pretty much the same as the D14 but 20-30 dollars cheaper. imo that is probably the best buy around the price for 60 bucks

Thanks for the respose but the cooler you have suggested retals at £54 in the uk at the best whereas the cooler i had listed can be bought for £32, the Noctua DH14 sells for £60 also so there isnt much differentce in the price over here thumb.gifmad.gif

o well in that case then get a noctua lol. but i guess for something cheaper you could get a scythe mugen or scythe ninja, depending on how much they cost. check out this thread
