Best AM2 HSF?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What would you say is the "best" AM2 cooler? Looking for something with good performance and fairly easy to install (unlike the Tuniq )

Throw a silverstone 121 on it and be done!
The only issue wit the SS121 is that you have to cut away the supporting material that bridges the screw holes or you'll have no where to clip the fan on to the HS.

Thanks for moving the post btw, completely forgot about the Air Cooling area (It's early and I'm at work )

I'll take a look at the Ultra 120... what's the difference between the normal and extreme? Four and six heat pipes, respectively?

If you buy the vanilla Ultra 120, you have to buy a separate adapter for it to attach to the AM2 socket. The Ultra 120 Extreme doesn't need the adapter for it to work correctly.

Oh, yeah, the Extreme has the extra two heatpipes also.

How did you cut the material away?
