Upgrading from the Hyper 212+

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok guys - It is time for me to upgrade from my Hyper 212+. I am running it on a Q9300 but I am not impressed with my temps. Idle is around 41C and load sometimes goes just over 60C.

My question is: What coolers are going to run significantly better than my 212+ but aren't overly expensive? I have about $100 to work with at Micro Center tomorrow. I know a lot of things those guys will recommend are going to be things that I will only see 1-2C improvements on (last time the guy recommended the CM V8 - temps sucked). Maybe Zalman?

I am thinking about an H50, but what else would guys recommend?

For your price range:

Noctua D14
Thermalright SilverArrow
Corsair H70
Thermaltake FrÃ*o
Coolermaster v6
Venomous-X

All those are really good coolers for the price. I'd go with Noctua D14 or SilverArrow.

Cool - I'll see if they've got them. I am guessing it will fit in my scout, as I have no memory HS. Will I be seeing a significant improvement over the 212+ as far as temps go?
