I7 860 Cooler

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,I need a decent air cooler that will keep my i7 860 very cool even overclocked to say 3.6-3.8Ghz.

I currently have a CoolIT Eco on my stock i7 860 but im not impressed at all.

My Cpu Idles around 25c-30c on the 4 cores which isnt bad for idle...but when i run prime95 for about 2 mins it hits 75-80c which is too high,The CoolIT simply cannot handle it even though my i7 is stock when tested on full load mad.gif

My max budget is £55 Uk pounds
Currency converted thats----
($85 USD)
($86 CAD)
($85 AUD)
(€64 EUR)

Please tell me whats the best cooler i can get for that budget.

Many thanks wave2.gif

Hey thanks for replying,.

That cooler looks really impressive,it looks similar in desighn to my old Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme...and i tell you that was some cooler!

However watching a video review on the Spire Thermax 2 eclipse,It appears to be quite noisy? would you say its noisy?

Thermalright Archon or Silver Arrow. These coolers are the best on the market and you need them because i7 860 is very hot cpu.

Those Prolimatech Megahalems looks really nice,expensive though+ id have to get decent fans it would go over my budget. :/

Akasa Venom

But im not sure if it would be any good.

For $85, I would recommend you NH-D14 and silver arrow. They are arguable the best air cooler on the market.
