    Not sure about prices in the UK, but in the US the 1283 is a very good cooler in its price range.

    I can't find his other thread :ohwell:

    So here's my thought... The S1283 is an excellent cooler IMO, however there are other's out there what are smaller and will perform around the same level as this S1283. Only reason I say that is because you have to be very careful about what case your using/going to use due to the massive hight of the cooler, it won't fit in many cases unless they are quite wide at the least.

    The Hyper 212+ is another HSF that tends to be available at an excellent price to performance ratio. Depends on its cost and availability in your area but keep an eye out for it.
