Socket 1156 air cooler, best bang for buck? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I had a thermalright silver arrow and a Thermaltake Frio and a megahalem

at MOST the difference between them is 1c

Go for whatever you think looks the best(frio)/ Cheapest(Second hand)


I find noctua to yes be nice to mount but cost $$$ and not cool as well as people make out

So what would I be able to get my i5-2300 up to with the Frio do you recon? And should I have an issue of compatibility with it and my asrock p67 pro3 mobo? I just heard many people saying it wash bash against their RAM... how much room do I need, because I can take measurements

But the others may perform better. If you want top performance, you could always go with watercooling. Even better temps with less noise if done right.
they were A models, referring to air coolers, you got me all excited... knob HAHA jk.s

EDIT: On this one version of Ebay that China has (Yes, I live there) they are selling silver arrows and nh-d14's for the same price, and the frio is more expensive! What is better the silver arrow or the nh-d14 for the same price? (both are selling for $75 new)

Silver Arrow is slightly better - about a degree. But it's quieter by several dB. The Noctua has a better mount though.

Okay listen!!! I've been hearing about how the 212+ is one of the best bang for the buck coolers out there. So during black friday, I got one for $10 after rebate just as a backup for my V8. When i sold my V8 last week, I intended to upgrade to a Noctua or something (im just waiting for a sale). Right now, after putting on the 212+ for the first time, I am BLOWN AWAY by the results. Before you all cry how I didn't seat my V8 correctly, i DID. For the past year, after plenty of reseating, i was averaging around 90-95C at load on a 4.2ghz overclock. That didn't bother me because I was rarely at full load anyways and I'm personally okay with anything under 100c. Since putting on my 212+, I'm sitting around 75-80C at full load, which just BAFFLES me. A $10 cooler (w/ one fan) that keeps my blazing hot 4.2Ghz below 80C; i am EXTREMELY satisfied. GET the 212+ You will not regret it. I'm tempted to pull out these stock fans and put on dual noctua fans just to see how low I can go.
I love my baby!
