    Hey

    What water cooling for processor do you recommend?
    My budget for this is ~$60.

    Thanks

    My flatmate uses the H60 with 2 silent corsair SP120 fans and he gets about 50-55c temps on 4.4Ghz i5 3570K. The new H60i should be a bit better and there are also other brands. But my point is that at your price range you will get largely enough cooling for a sub-100W TDP cpu.

    with a budget of 60 bucks forget about any kind of water cooling the cheaper AIO units just aren't worth it they perform like crap compared to a air cooler in the same price bracket
    you can pickup a Thermaltake FRIO or a Xixmatek Darknight II for under 60 and both will be more then enough to take that cpu to 4GHZ+

    With that budget it's better to stick with air cooling, as others have already stated. Also, "our" MoBo reviewer has stated that WC on 1155 is "pointless" anyways...

    Hm Corsair H80i looks good.
    But $60 is not enough. So i must think about this. Thanks.

    Ok thanks. I think, I buy H80 or "i" but not now. Damn, why items for computer are expensive? :p

    In my country this cooler cost even $120.

    H60 isn't a bad choice at all... One air cooler seems to be better in this graph:
