Best cooler for E8400?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking at buying new budget gaming rigg. Found an E8400 and a Biostar Tpower i45 for a massive bargain. Im convinced that this board will push the E8400 very far, however im not too sure about the cooling. What would be a good cooler for the 775 socket? Any suggestions? Thanks guys.

What is your budget? And your noise tolerance? How far are you planning to OC? Just about any mainstream tower will do. The Xiggy DK, Hyper 212+, Megahalems, VenX, and also the Arctic Freezer Pro is decent. WHY DID YOU GET SUCH AN OVERPRICED PROCESSOR?
