$40 1155 or 775 heatsink

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a 2500K, and in the future I want to do some overclocking, so I would like to purchase a heatsink. The motherboard I've got has holes for 1155 and 775 heatsinks, so either one would work. I've got about $40 to spend. Which one should I get?

1155 HEATSINK of course cos its a 1155 mobo and its a 1155 cpu.
edit. newer almost equals better.

this one's a pretty good deal right now, at $26 after rebate (Corsair A70)

You'll want to look for 1155/1156 compatible HSF's.

I'd recommend a Scythe product for the price range that you're looking for.

Otherwise the Dark Knight is only $25 after MIR. Adding another fan to it makes it a very powerful HSF capable of massive overclocking.
