The Megahalems, Noctua D-14 and Silver Arrow are more expensive but they perform a bit better overall than the 212+. But performance per dollar the 212+ is the easy choice.

Unless you can find one of the "big" tower coolers for cheap in the for sale section here. There was a Mega for like 40 bucks there the other day. <-- That + 2 Yate Loons would take you wherever you wanted to go.

megahalems
noctua D14
Silver arrow
Those are all some of the very best air coolers that you can buy.

Except he specifically asked for things NOT as big as a D14, and you suggest 3 things that size, including the D14 itself rolleyes.gif
