Going to buy my cooler today.. any recommendations?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have an Asus Extreme Striker mobo,
and will purchase a cooler from www.yoyotech.co.uk and my budget for the cooler is about £37.

Would anyone recommend memory cooling? They have some for sale on that site also.

The Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme is the best at $50 but the Tuniq which isn't as good is cheap at $38.

I would get the tuniq. It's a very good cooler. And don't bother with memory cooling, the stock heatspreaders on it are fine.

Just done some more research and it looks like the tuniq tower will be best value for money. I'm going to go with that.

How many times is this question asked a week?
Thermalright 120 Extreme - aka TRUE
Just get a good 80+ CFM fan [38mm thick would be better] with it.
