Hey looking for a cooler for my CPU... recommendations...
What kind of budget do you have?
I would say you can't go wrong with the Xigmatek HDT-S1283, could try the 1284 but with the offset heatpipes might not work as well, even with the bigger die of the Q6600.
First, air or water? If air, the Ximagtek mentioned above is good. If you want water on a budget, get the Swiftech H20-220 Compact. It kept my Quad nice and cool.
Air... Water is too risky... Leakage=wreckage
Not really, not if use non conductive coolant and distilled water. I was nervous about that too, but once I saw how easy it was, I wont be worried next time.
You could always try Thermaltake's V1. Very nice and wicked design.
Na im right thanks....
I saw the True 120 Black edition and about spewed myself. Sick! I also am partial to the Sycthe Copper Ninja. Both are freakin sweet!
The "best" would prolly be liquid nitrogen
The "cheapest" would prolly be the stock HSF included in the retail box
However, for good value for the money, I would suggest the OCZ Vendetta for $22.
get the xigma, all the others r just imitators
If you get the rifle (xigma) then get the backplate for it too
I use Zalman's cpu air cooler works great, only con its really large :|
