Looking for a CPU cooler that's quieter then the stock one

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have a FX-8320 and the stock cooler is REALLY loud under loads, so I'm looking for an aftermarket one. My budget is up to 50$, I will overclock it, though not for records or something, just overclock since it's an unlocked processor. My case is Coolermaster K350 (without window), I'll upload photos soon.

I love all-in-one coolers so if you can spare a few more $, I recommend H50 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181010. It's neat, looks like it will fit your case, it can handle decent OC and it is $49.99 AMR thumb.gif

Can you give me a link to internet store you can buy from?

You can probably get a Thermalright True Spirit 120M for less than 50. Your case spec is 148.5mm and True Spirit 120M is 145mm. Be sure you get the 120M

Macho 120 may fit. It's spec is 150mm

I can't find the H50 anywhere in Switzerland O_o & and it seems that water-cooling is way overpriced here anyway (H60 costs almost 100$) so I'll have to stick with air.

Water cooling is much more expensive. Some CLC are not expensive, but they are built cheap and have more problems than air, are usually louder and don't cool any better.
