im not a big fan of thermaltake coolers

depends what price u wanna spend , any phenom 955/960/965/970 not gonna go far away from 4Ghz check point without a very high bump in voltage , if u wanna future proof then coolers at 60-80$ are wise choice , if just for 4Ghz then 30-40$ will do .
my personal favorites :
Corsair H50 71$/61$ AR shipped
Noctua NH-U9B SE2 60$ shipped
Corsair A70 46$/26$ AR shipped
ZALMAN CNPS5X SZ 30$/20$ AR shipped

each is good at their own price point

the corsair A70 and the frio seem about the same, but the A70 is cheaper, should I just go with the A70? I also know that 4.0 might be too much, so i would probably go up to like 3.7-3.8

I think the A70 only mounts blowing upwards (like Xigmatek DK) unless you get a special mounting kit
post #18 of 20
I'm surprised nobody has yet mentioned a Sandy Bridge build with that budget...

IMO, get i7-2600k, p67 board, hyper 212+ cpu cooler, 8GB ddr3 doesn't matter speed (1600mhz is good enough) since it won't make a noticeable difference in 99% of the tasks(this forum is for computer extremists ), Corsair psus like others have mentioned, Samsung F3 1TB like others've said. Everything should be around $900 excluding monitor and accessories.

P.S. This build will be around 10 times as fast as the AMD build(not literally but you get the idea ) for a little more money

I love my frio but thats me, i just ordered a 975 to replace my 965 lol i know theres no difference really except the 200mhz jump. Except i have read that they reworked the IMC a little, and people have gotten the 975 to 4ghz on air with stock voltages
