That's £28 with postage. Amazon sells Scythe Mine 2 for £27 free postage tongue.gif

Scan sells Hyper 212 EVO for £26 free postage

Notice the TS120 is 5c cooler when overclocked? It's a better built cooler is all.

You're dying to convince me to get this one biggrin.gif

I got to admit it is a nice looking cooler, the fan stands out.

Xbit labs say the True Spirit performs better, but Hardware Secrets say it performs worse (1c better than my current).

Theres so many

Xigmatek Gaia
Hyper 212 EVO
Hyper 412S
Hyper T4
True Spirit 120
Zalman CNPS10X Optima
CNPS7X
Gelid Tranquillo
CM A30


EDIT: Oh yeah, that's against the EVO too.

Its really small too. Well I take it it'll be better than my Thors Hammer?

First of all:
<60°C @1.44V is not all that high for a mid-range Air cooler, and non of these coolers will give you significanlty better temperatures. Most of them will perform worse. Why are you so keen on buying a worse cooler than you already have?

Either save some money and get a cooler that will actually perform better (and maybe a bigger/better case)...
Or drop your vcore a bit if the temps are too high for your liking...
