    i7 Heat-sinks

    Hey all I'm just looking a recommendation for a nice new heatsink for my i7 930

    I plan on doing some moderate overclocking around @4ghz if possible.

    budget is around £35 and if possible I want to get it from CCLonline or scan,

    if from scan got to be around £30 as got to include postage

    Any help much appreciated :-D

    Can't really help you with the heatsink choice but just wanted to let you know you can get free delivery with Scan now.

    Re: i7 Heat-sinks

    Depends on budget really. I have a Noctua, and plenty of others go for the sealed loop H-60. Have a look here.

    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: i7 Heat-sinks

    If you want a reasonable heatpipe based heatsink, have a look at this one...

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/intel...xtreme-cpu-oem

    Its an oem one, but it's the OEM heatsink that comes with the i7 980X and its a lot better than any heatsink in its price range...

    That's not a bad call actually.

    To go up a category then any of the 'direct touch' type heat pipe coolers are good. I went with a Corsair A50 which had some good reviews, but I was disappointed with the fan it shipped with.

    Re: i7 Heat-sinks

    A good low cost cooler is the coolermaster hyper 212 plus http://www.scan.co.uk/products/coole...m2-am2plus-am3
    however 4ghz might be a bit much for it, probably the fan fan will run fast and be noisy.
