post #11 of 16
Yea 212+ will get ya plenty of cooling for your $ here.
That Noctua is nice, but you could also get a NH-U9B (SE2) for less, have seen them on Amazon for just over $50

Well, you saw in the other thread my setup, I am using a A50 without the fan and just letting the natural airflow cool it.

Keeps my Sempron 140 cool (and did fine with my 45w BE-2400 x2 when I had it in there too).

Corsair A70 coolers are too width or is the heatsink from A70? I dont knwo A50 but 212+ and 2nd fan on amazon cost 2$ more today and forsure it´ll outperform it

adding that I ordered that heatsink+ that fan for 2 or 3$ more and I still think is a good purchase

Ill try the 212+ with and without the fan, and see how that works out

Which way are you mounting it?
My A50 only mounts the "wrong" way, but is what I need for my system. The 212+ can mount either way.

My case is also set up with the 140mm fan being the only exhaust (aside from the PSU in the bottom). I took out the 120mm rear fan and covered that hole, so all my case airflow is through the top. Having the rear 120 mm may not allow for as good of passive cooling. It may be something you have to play with to see what works best with your system.

Also, temps will be a little higher than you may be used to. I idle around 40-42°C and under load gets to around 53-54°C (ambient is around 23-26°C (73-78°F).
With a fan on the heatsink, temps were about 10° cooler, but I was trying to go for as quiet as I could (even though the A50 fan on low was very quiet).
