VenX or Corsair H50 on AM3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, looking for a better cooler to replace the loud stock one that comes with the 1055t!!

I would prefer to spend under $90 and my ramsinks are tall (53mm gskill pi)

With that said which would provide better temps out of the box with 1 more fan?


Venomous X-RT

or

Corsair H50

looking to take my 1055t to 4GHz

I'd weigh it down to personal preference, whether you prefer water or air. Both are good coolers and should be capable of 4.0 at good temps, although a better fan may be considered for either purchase.

i have the H50 in a push pull setup and couldnt be happier. After having the huge air cooler towers, the minimalism of the H50 is easier on my eyes. I was able to hit 4.0 on my 965 with the H50 and some OCZ freeze

In the end, yes it does come down to preference
