These are both the same price right now(49.90) and I like them both. Which one would you recommend? Or how about any cpu cooler in the 50 to 60 price range. I also really like the 9900max...so many coolers to choose from!

I would go for the True Spirit 140, or alternatively the Macho but not the Zalman cooler:

But i dont think the TS140 will fit in your case, it's 172mm in height compared to the 162mm of the HR-02.

Is there a specific reason to steer away from the Zalman just out of curiosity? I've seen some people say it may be one of the best out there but that was on high profile review sites so(i know they aren't all trustworthy).... I guess somebody asked this question before based on your quote haha it should fit in my case however, no problem

Oh well never mind I guess the true spirit isn't even compatible with 1156. Now I'm back to square one. I just want the best performing air cooler that won't block tall memory and is 1156 and 155 compatible in case I upgrade to sandy here soon. And sorry, I know there are like 700038849 people asking this question everyday

1155 and 1156 share the same holes.

Hole spacing for 1155 is identical to 1156, so it's probably just an omission on their product page.

EDIT : beaten to it!

True Spirit 140 is tall at L155mm x W53mm(+26.5mm fan) x H170mm so make sure you have room for it.


Macho HR-02 is L140mm x W102mm (+26.5mm fan) x H162mm.


True Spirit 120M is very compact L133mm x W52mm(+25mm fan) x H145mm
