In the market for a new cooler, suggestions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So my Corsair H60 is on its last legs, this is my thread about it. And due to this I am in the market for a new cooler. I am looking for a new cooler to replace it, I don't care if it's air or water, but the issue is I am in college on my last semester so I am very short on money. Can someone recommend me a good cooler for under 50?

I have an i7-930 that I like to overclock to 3.14 (because pi is awesome). So I'd like it to be nice and cool, whatever method I use, I would also highly prefer something that matches the color scheme I have going, black and red.

Any suggestions are welcome, I may be able to go a touch higher in price, but it is very unlikely.

under $50 is tough how about http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Edition-Liquid-CW-9060010-WW/dp/B009VV56TY/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1394232332&sr=8-11&keywords=cpu+cooler

Those are expensive. I have a HAF921m. I don't think I can fit it. But money is my issue.

I'm heading to micro center today so I'll take a look. I was thinking trying air cooling. Namely the v6. But it's hard to find.

So I went over to MicroCenter today and they had a deal on the H60, 20 bucks instant saving, so I got an H60 for 60 bucks. biggrin.gif

My temps are now at 33 degrees. Which is what I'm used to. Do I just leave this thread open or is there a way to close it?
