    I have this cooler "Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme" and it keeps my Phenom II 965 C3 overclocked to 4Ghz at an idle temp of 30c and under load temp of 40c

    A great cooler for
    $62.99

    Intel LGA 1156 / LGA 1366 / LGA 775
    AMD Socket 754 / 939 / 940 / AM2 / AM2+ / AM3

    I'm currently running the Zalman CNPS 10x Extreme if you're willing to spent some, but its a hit or miss on whether it'll fit. my temps are nice though.

    3.4Ghz at 1.4v
    Idle: 36c
    Load: 45-46c

    I'm willing to spend 40-80 dollars on a new heat sink.

    @FULMTL
    Yes I'm using the stock cooler for now and hopefully I can buy one on tomorrow or Thursday.

    another vote for either the:

    CoolerMaster Hyper212 Plus ($40ish) as a cheaper cooler
    (titan fenrir is also good)

    or

    Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme ($62)
    Possibly the best cooler currently on the market going by FrostyTech

    Seeing as I am kinda thinking about my next PC I got some figures for you guys:

    Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus
    Fast Fans 50.1dBA
    85watt Heat Load Test 16.9c
    150watt Heat Load Test 10.9c

    Slow Fans 35.3dBA
    85watt Heat Load Test 19c
    150watt Heat Load Test 29.1c

    Titan's TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir
    Fast Fans 58.6dBA
    85watt Heat Load Test 8.8c
    150watt Heat Load Test 15.5c

    Slow Fans 31.4dBA
    85watt Heat Load Test 15.5c
    150watt Heat Load Test 25.5c

    Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme
    Fast Fans 43.5dBA
    85watt Heat Load Test 8.4c
    150watt Heat Load Test 14.1c

    Slow Fans 37.4dBA
    85watt Heat Load Test 12.1c
    150watt Heat Load Test 20.5c

    I was thinking that The Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme is going to be my next cooler, but is So damn big... sexy for a cooler though!

    so now the Titan starts to look more tempting with its great cooling for the size - will see later for me I guess :)

    I own a corsair H50. It's magnificient.

    You should be able to get one at 70 to 90 us$. I paid mine 80$ Can.

    If you don't dislike noctua, i'd suggest the NH-U12P SE2 or is big brother the NH-D14. The second one is the best cpu cooler on the market that I know of with both fans on it. It's pretty big so you need a large case to fit it. Otherwise, the U12P is pretty good also with 4 pipes isntead of 6. They are both at the same price range then the H50.

    If you look at cheaper cpu cooler, the one the other posted are decent one. But for 20 to 40 bucks more, why not get the best ? :)

    How about the Prolimatech Megahalems. At frosty tech, its rated 2nd, under the tuniq tower 120 extreme, but, they only used a 80mm fan which is kind of an unfair comparison. 2 120mm fans push pull on that thing should be pretty dang good.

    The Best 3 Air Cooler are Prolimatech Megahalems with 2 Fans , Venomous X with 2 Fans and Noctua NH-D14 , if you have cash for it , its the best choose , and a good thermal paste too.

    This is my Tuniq tower 120 extreme fitted, if you can see from the photo, normal RAM fits under it, but as my brother found out, Dominator heatsinks do not, by a long way

    Cant you turn it 90 degrees though? Id figure that would take care of clearance problems.

    it is big, but not quite as bad as I had imagined.

    Will be squeezing it into an Antec P193 probably...

    cheers for the photo, nice case btw ;)

    I would go for the corsair hydro h50........I am currently using it on a q9400 OC'd to 3ghz....temps on cpu load are as follows:

    Core 0: 35
    Core 1: 31
    Core 2: 35
    Core 3: 38

    when I am play games only the temps of core 0 / 1 change....cores 2 / 3 temps remain the same.....I really love this cooler because I can push the cpu to its limit without overheating.....also in summer I don't have to bother about heat.....cause it really remains cool....http://lanthrax.com/gallery_picture_details.asp?GIID=64FECA3A72EC0685FAA0CFB933A738256F4BC4D1F9EE1354A9C3F1D3E57A6493

    Just got the corsir H50 from newegg (77.00USD), free shipping too. easy to install and silent. Keeps a q6600 clocked at 3.8ghz around 35c idle and 55c load after a couple hours running benchmarks.
