So what would OCN say..

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
For a Socket LGA775 cooler. I'm currently stuck on stock, and want to change it soon. What Heatsink/Fan do you use, or what have you used and which do you think works the best. Opinions please.
post #2 of 17
The Tuniq Tower is probably one of the better air coolers out for the socket 775...

Look closely at the Tower Coolers

Noctua
Tuniq
Scythe
Thermalright

...any one that is compatible with a 120mm fan.

Thermalright Ultra 120. Something like that. Some test shows that it beats the Tuniq by 2~3C.

Thermaltake Big Typhoon gets my vote. its cheap AND good.

if you got $$ to spare get a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, FM121 fan and lapping kit. but i would just get a BT and FM121
