Decent Air cooler

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey, I was thinking of buying an air cooler to replace my Hyper 212+. Does anyone have any recommendations for high end air coolers that are not either NH-D14 or Thermalright Silver Arrow. Thanks alot!

You will be hard pressed to find a better cooler.

I gotta ask. Why are you "upgrading" from your Hyper 212? Its performance is more than enough for pretty much any processor.

You can't hit 5ghz with 212+ :/

"Are you using two fans or just one on your 212?" Only one.
