    CPU cooler-Some Questions

    I am looking at buying a CPU cooler and have heard a lot about different coolers. I have looked at the artic cooler 7 and for the pice it is very good. I would like to know how much more cooling performane I would get from a better CPU cooler. I like the sound of the Enzotech Ultra-X Active but I do not know where to buy this in the UK.

    It all depends what you want to do. If you want to run at stock, you dont need to spend much, if you want to overclock the nuts off it, youll need to spend more.

    My suggestions would be Scythe Ninja, Thermalright Ultra 120 or Noctua NH-U12F

    Got to be careful on case height with the scythe and probably the noctua.

    I've got the thermalright and with a nice quiet fan it's keeping my A64 nice and cool.

    All the above take 120mm fans so you can get the best performance with least noise.

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro is fantastic value for money, and will enable a good overclock, the Tuniq Tower 120 was king of the air coolers, but seems to have been bettered by the Thermalright Extreme 120 - make sure they fit your case!
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
