Spire Thermax Eclipse II, Thermaltake Frio, or 240cfm Delta?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to shave some temps, guys. Should I upgrade my Mugen 2 to a Spire Thermax Eclipse II, a Thermaltake Frio, or just replace my Ultra Kaze with a 240 cfm Delta? Sound is not an issue but price is; I wanna stay as close to the $50 range as possible.

Spire Thermax Eclipse II if you ask me followed by the Frio. Check out this link:

Spire came out number 1 for both Intel and AMD in terms of temps while the Frio comes in at rank 5 and 3 for Intel and AMD in terms of temps.

Whichever you choose it should be very good!

That's actually what I was going by. You don't think the Delta would cover that difference?

The heatsink would still be the same, so if you change your fan you should see a 1~3*C difference which is not that much.
