Thread Starter 
Hey everyone I am having a hard time deciding which cpu cooler to get. I don't know if I should get a Corsair H70 with some Scythe GT AP-15's or Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler with the Scythe GT AP-15's. I want to be able to overclock my i7 950 to atleast 3.2ghz with hyper threading on and stay below 60c at full load my temps right now at stock 950 3.06ghz with HT off I get 50c while gaming and close to 60c when im streaming and gaming. I know im posting in the WC thread but idk which cpu cooler would be better please help me out.

i would go with the h70 it seems to beat out the megahalems in the reviews that ive read I had and h50 the lower end of that h70 and it kept my six core well under 50c under full load for hours

*edit* heres some reviews to help u out

Which ever setup is cheaper and fits your space requirements (imo). 3.2 shouldn't be a problem for either one. You could also look at future requirements in case you want to overclock farther down the road.

So you guys are saying the h70 would perform better over the megahalems?
post #6 of 10
the 3d guru review uses core i5s and i7s and even a C2D i think its a pretty well rounded review
