Looking for some suggestions

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I have a small amount of money to upgrade my Desktop .

 

Im looking for a Cooler and a Soundcard. 

 

I have my idea for the soundcard going with a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829132020

 

To pair with my Audio Technica ATHM50's

 

 

I need a good reccomendation for a CPU cooler looking for air cooling no WC. 

 

I have a Phenom 955 im looking to OC because I have an Foxconn Destroyer. Using a stock heatsink. 

 

Budget would be around 30. Im looking to get my soundcard , my cpu cooler and some DVI to VGA adapters.

Well, the soundcard costs $27 on its own, and you would be hard pressed to find a quality cpu cooler for $3...

It's Thermalright True 120. thumb.gif

I've heard nice recommendations about Thermalright's, but not much recommendations about Thermaltake's air coolers.

Thermalright are good. Thermaltake are.. well.. not for me.

Cogage coolers are also Thermalright made. Not as good a mount but still good.
