Best air cooling for E2160 on P5N-E SLI ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok as the title says i want to find a reasonably priced (30-40€) good quality air cooler for the E2160 on the P5N-E SLI. At the moment im running the E2160 M0 stepping at 3.0 GHz with Vcore @ 1,4 V (NB set to auto V) and i get a super pi time of 22.343 seconds . The overclock is stable but under load the core temps can easily reach 80+ degrees C if running something like Large FFT's so i usually dont want to run that for more than a minute... (though reported CPU temp is in the low 50's C). So thats why im looking for better cooling. Options that i have considered are:

Zalman CNPS 7500 Alcu/Cu
OCZ Vindicator or Vendetta
... and maybe the Zalman CNPS 9500 AT.

So which is the best cooler out of those and what cooler would you sugest with the absoloute max. price cap of 45€ (40€ would be best).

Thanks

That's around 60-90$, right?

In that case, the IFX-14 (Infernal Fire eXtinguisher) if you can fit it, if you can't the TRUE (Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme).

No, that is pounds. I think € means Euro which means he is looking for one that is between $46.68-$62.24.
I would get a Tuniq Tower.

Well a TRUE is around 55-65$, and that's second best to the IFX-14 which is around 75-85$.

So the P5N-E SLI can fit a tuniq tower...
Anyways i can't find one from the local dealer and TRUE is 64.90€ the IFX-14 is 70€

So aren't any of my proposals any good and are there any cheaper good coolers?

Out of those, the OCZ Vendetta. If the IFX-14 is local, I would go for it, thats not bad just 5 over a TRUE. Here it's 85$ + 10$ shipping, add tax and all, roughly 100$.
