An Air Cooler For My AMD...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im gonna switch to air cooling (mainly for space). Now i need the BEST air cooler available i dont care about price. I want to get my 3700+ to acceptable temps so i can run my 3.1ghz @ 1.6v. The chip is lidless also. So tell me what do you think is the way to go? Is there anything better then the BT? i dont care if its only a lil better for more money ill pay. thanks

Well, 2 fans in a push-pull config on their Sonic Tower beat their BT by 1 to 2 degrees in the review I read, but not sure if that would hold true if you replaced the stock fan on the BT. I installed a BT on a build 2 weeks ago and fell in love with how quiet it was. It doesn't sound like you care about noise, so maybe try the Sonic Tower or Scythe Ninja with 2 massive fans.
