Still thanks for suggesting.
wait you bought a CM v8 for a budget rig?

there are much cheaper much better coolers out there. LOL.

I mean I understand why somebody might think it was good, but it just really isn't. Why does not being able to find a CPU have anything to do with the cooler?

Thick heatsink with thin fins is going to give the best results.

Yea, I know about that but there's just no option except the CM's Coolers in the local store ( I had to travel approx 87 miles to get there ) the other options are only the V6 and......the CM V10 which is too heavy even if I wanna cool down my RAMs
