Looking At Aircoolers

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well upon recent discovery that my H50 is bad somewhere in it's loop Im looking for a decent aircooler.
Found out my H50 isnt running right when my CM GeminII S got about the same results and didnt hit 60c unlike my h50. And Yes I reseated the thing several times and no avail.

Was looking into possible getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835887011 with some Shin Etsu TIM

Also replacing all my case fans with These Also 2 140mm versions for front and top of my Storm Scout.
nb4212+/DH14

Want to OC to 4GHz and run it cool but no more than $50

For around $50 your options are limited.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...man%20performa = it's manages to get close to a D14 on some reviews but only at high fan speed which is loud.

Next 2 options to drop to $50 from time to time, but currently aren't.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...06150&Tpk=Frio = Yes I know it's $58, but it drops to $50 at time along with the CM V6 GT in amazon, also a bit loud to make better temps.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...89&Tpk=V6%20GT = Used to have a $10 MIR making it $50, guess not anymore, but it may come back.

yeah it just hit me why those ones are better. but mainly if 1 part fails you can buy a replacement which would be the fans. XD Well I do have a $10 giftcard to newegg so I can take up to $60

Frio is excellent for what it's worth. Probably out of all the middle priced air coolers, that one is the best just under a Megahalem or a Venomous X, but as with the 3 I listed, they can get loud - so be aware of the noise.

Noise isnt much of an issue for me since I only wear studio headphones and when sound starts going I hear nothing. Also currently right now I have an Antec 3 speed fan which is LOUD at max speed (Using it to cool off gpu)
