    I'm looking for a relatively cheap cooler for my i7 920 which is on order atm but am having a bit of trouble finding many as im in the UK and theres not a lot about for i7 :(

    Has anyone maybe got something there selling or point me in the right direction of where to get one. not too bothered about perf as i can upgrade it in a few weeks time and am budget limited (about £20) until next payday :mad:

    Look around for the Scythe Mugen 2....Costs around 30-35Euros in EU so it should cost you around 25 pounds....And its a Great cooler.

    Yeah even going to Scythe and hitting their supplied links they were 35-40 :( Too bad, they sell dollar for dollar the same price here.

    Could you link us to the website you are looking to purchase from so we can see what is available to you?

    Not sure about the UK, but the best i7 "budget cooler" we have here in the States is the Xigmatek S1283V Dark Knight.

    I will agree with most and say S1283V or Scythe Mugen 2 are VERY GOOD air coolers for i7 and they are cheap :D isn't that just great?

    Less bad...For example the Mugen 2 costs in the UK around 38 pounds while in Greece costs 40Euros....So even here it is cheaper...Same goes for most coolers i checked online.
