post #11 of 12
well if you want quiet, I would suggest saving up 60 bucks for a Noctua Those things are supposed to be dead silent..
or u can try the 212 which is half the price

EDIT: You said cheap.. which cab be arguable

so yeah I thumbs up the 212 now

I would get Noctua. Like Dorianime said, they are super silent and runs extremely cool. My 4.00 GHz Phenom II idles at 35 and at 100% stress it's about 59-62 degrees. They are a bit more expensive but I would say they are definitely worth the price tag.

That is the cooler I have installed right now.

That one is not bad as well, my roommate uses that one.
