An effective sub £15 cooler for a Phenom II x4

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im building my girlfriend a computer when i next go back from uni. She's already got all the components, but she needs me to put them together, but im trying to convince her that she could benefit from a CPU cooler. She has an ASUS AM3+ board with a Phenom II x4 965. There wont be any overclocking going on, its just to get better temps than a stock cooler and be a bit quieter.

Are there any effective coolers for less than £15 for an AM3+ board?
Thanks in advance smile.gif

A cooler master TX3 would work great: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103064

But I recommend that you spend a tiny bit more and get the Hyper 212: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099
