Decent cooler less than 3.5" tall ???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
AMD A10-7700k

My case has about 3.5 inches of clearance above the CPU (power supply fan is right above, case is Silverstone SG01). I am looking for a decent CPU cooler around the $35 range for a system that wont be overclocked but will be taxed regularly. All I can seem to find is small ones that are $50+, large ones that wont fit, or craptacular ones. I am looking for one that has at least an 8cm fan and isn't too tall. Because of the proximity to the PSU fan, I also want one that either has a side blowing fan or one where the fan can be flipped to blow upwards. The following one meets all of the above requirements, after I mount a standard fan anyway. Does anyone know of any other ones I should check out? Thanks

The beta St 400 is actually a pretty good cooler. Sits about 1/3 of an inch from the PSU fan which I turned to pointing down, no air flow issues. The $20 price tag is a bonus.

3.5" ~ 89mm

I'll second doyll on the Thermalright AXP-100 (58mm tall), it's cheaper on Superbiiz though

http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=CA-AXP100M
($36.99 + $3.99 Shipping = $40.98)

The AXP-200 should also fit since it's 73mm tall.

http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=CA-AXP200M
$45.99, Free Shipping
$5 off CA-AXP200M w/code: POCKY140403, ends 04/07
--> $40.99

AXP-200 is slightly quieter + cooler
