Which air cooler to get my 6600k to 4.5ghz and stay under $50?

I have a Fractal Arc R2 Mini so whatever is recommended has to fit in this. Thanks!

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a good choice.
post #3 of 12
Arc R2 has 165mm CPU clearance, so lots of coolers will fit the case. No idea what will clear RAM and PCIe sockets.
I would probably use a True Spirit 140 rev.A. Price and availability vary depending on where you live.


Hyper 212 was a decent cooler years back, but now there are many that cool as well and better for same and lower prices.

Rev A is unavailable in U.S, while the 140 Power won't fit due to the 171mm height being too tall for the o.p.'s 165mm case limitations.

I did a lot of extensive research at the time i bought mine - had same preference at $50-60 price range @gmcdougal with overclocking in mind. Made up the decision to get the H5 ultimate (b/c it's black and later add on a 2nd fan for push pull. I think my cpu cooler might even give more value against the cryorig R1 at $90 lol.

If you go through the forums, I recall previous posts from last week about the same topic of $50 fan/heatsink cpu coolers.

It is out of stock at this time .. because they are very popular. 'Currently unavailable' on Amazon does not mean they are never available in USA'. buttkick.gifbiggrin.gif

All Thermaright enter USA to Nan's Gaming Gear. Their site says "Out of Stock". Hopefully they will be getting more in soon.
http://www.nansgaminggear.net/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TS-140-BW-RevA-TY147A

In case anyobe is interested, here is some test data comparing H5 and True Spirt 140 Rev.A. H5 has 2x fans in all testing. True Spirt 140 Rev.A is 1x and 2x fans. Even single fan is better, but 2x do give it another degree or two. Stock H5 Universal is about 2c warmer than it is with push/pull fans as it is here. Testing has a 1c margin of error.

wow that's crazy. too bad i wasn't aware of it at the time - otherwise, i would've gotten it.

so @doyll how would you explain the difference in not only having better performance and less noise, but also weighing less than cryorig's h5?

Here's my opinion. Perhaps more heatpipes, better fan, and quality construction of heat pipes? After all, thermalright has been around since 2001 while Cryorig started in 2013.

Hard to say what the reasons are. I do think the TY-147A fan is better. As for the qualty of coolers I think both are very well made. Margin of error could be a couple degrees, meaning the difference is only a degree or two. Also keep in mind that test was not done several times .. as in remounting cooler, and re-testing to see if 5 or 6 sessions all gave the same results. Room temperature varied 5c (18c-24c) in them and no barometric pressure or humidity readings were taken. More pressure and wetter air will give lower temps too.

This is True Spirit 140 Power so maybe 2c better than than Rev. A. But you can see how well they do with high performance fans. biggrin.gif
True Spirit 140 has veen aorund for a long time with Thermalright 'tweaking' it for years now. It is an exceptional cooler, no doubt about it. It has to be to be able to match NH-D14 performance. biggrin.gif .

True Spirit 140


Cryorig H5


Cryorig R1

I think the advantage of the True Spirit 140 over the H5 is due to both the fan and the # of heat pipes. The H5 only has 8, while the True Spirit 140 has 12. What if the H5 had 12 heat pipes -> maybe you can call it the H120 (get it? H20 but 12 = H120? nvm not funny). All of this is just speculation based on the theory that the more thermal conductors, the more effective heat dissipation.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pipe

Well doyll, i guess i didn't know much about air cooling as i thought i did. The cryorig H5 was my first aftermarket cooler xD. I'm not ashamed i got it - i'm actually happy i chose it over the 212 evo, which was my first consideration, but then i compared/contrasted price-to-performance on some reviews, which excluded the True Spirit 140; which is quite a shame. oh well. there will always be better products coming down the pipeline, right? haha

You're counting that wrong. The R1 has 7 heatpipes, the H5 has 4 while the True has 6, but there are many factors like fin shape, fin quantity, fin thickness, Heatpipe size, heatpipe construction, heatpipe/base contact, base finish quality, fan quality and specifications, fin angles, single/dual towers, offsets, overall case airflow and much more. All these factors add up to a simple heatsink. It's not so simple now is it?

You could have a simple Hyper 212 design work better than a R1 design is the base isn't correctly done and the pipes are not well soldered to the base. It's all about overall quality of all these little things that add up to the total performance of a Heatsink. Thermalright seem to be doing a great job because in theory, the dual tower, 7 heatpipe cooler should cool superiorly to the 6 heatpipe single tower.

Yeah i counted wrong. Sorry. damn i suck. but i'm learning. thank you for correcting me
