Phenom 955 Cooler

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So I'm in need of a decent Air Cooler for my 955. Stock is 3.2, I want to take it to 4.0 at least. What do I need to do that? I also was it to look good, my case has a side window. If it's got a blue LED fan, that would be preferable.

I was looking at these, any thoughts?

If anything those ones you suggested are "ugly"
You can always throw a LED fan on one of the sinks if you want it to be "pretty"

Xigmatek dark knight comes with a LED light on it if you want looks over performance. But, I wouldn't recommend it since you're on AMD. You would need custom brackets to mount it vertically.

get a mugen 2; at 3.2ghz w/ 22c ambient, i'm idling at 27c, full load at 35c w/ 2 slipstreams
my core contact freezer full loaded at 40c

just replace the fans with those silly LED ones u wish for, as the stock one isn't too great
these slipstreams kinda suck too; will upgrade in future!

Neither of those you suggested worth their price.

Basically what he said.

On the other hand, you'll have a hard time getting to 4.0 GHz on air, most of them tops out at 3.8-3.9 GHz.
