Looking for a cooler to take me to 4+ ghz

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
And I can't decide.

Aside from the Thermalright GodArrow and the Noctua Jesus14, I'm having trouble deciding what the best performance cooler/fan setup will be.

I'm currently eyeing the Hyper 212+, Titan Fenrir, Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B, and Venomous X (with a fan).

Sig rig is the target. Advice?

WC'ing is the best option if you want to stay cool, those air coolers will allow you to hit 4GHz but you wont get the best results imo. Consider picking up an H50, H60, or H70.

My vote is Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B and I would get some Gentle Typhoon AP-15 for it too.
EDIT
On the H50, H60, or H70 comment.
Don't buy they. They are not worth the money unless you don't have the space for a better cooler. Plus a 1090T need less vcore to hit 4.0ghz then Phenom II x4. A stock Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B is equal to a H50 and Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B is cheaper for the same performance.

And have one of those make-shift pumps die in a year? Besides, I don't consider Corsair's H-line to be "watercooling".

Grab an RS240 kit. Its not that much money and you'll have true water cooling as well. Heck get a 360, you have a HAF X, the rad will fit no problem across the top of the case.

Wow, your choices sure span the price range. I say go with the Mugen.

Ide personally go with the Venomous-X, that cooler is one of the best... Probably in the top 3. 1 Fan will be perfect for it, and whats nice is you can add a second fan!

I have this dilemma but on the i5 750 I have decided to go with a thermalright archon within 2 C of SA but doesn't cover any RAM slots and is currently cheaper

The Hyper 212+ is there on the condition that it comes with better fans. If anybody suggests that one, They should give some fan suggestions, too.

Not sure about temps on Phenom ii x6s but on i5 750s the hyper 212+ (even with decent fans) can't get me to 4
