CPU Cooler for AMD FX-8120 <$60

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm getting a cpu cooler to replace my stock on on my 8120 and hopefully get it up to 4ghz. I was looking at the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CO, but then came across the Thermalright HR-02 Macho, which seems to be a bit better for $4 more. Out of these two, which one would you recommend, or are there better ones around the <$60 mark? Thanks.

Ive heard good stuff about the HR-02 Macho. It performs very well for its price.
