Default cpu cooler

I'm looking for a decent cooler for my am 2 dual. I dont want something expensive and I'm looking for quite. like i have the stock cooler and it keeps mine cool but its drilling a hole in my head with the noise. its like a whining wirling noise in my ear and driving me crazy. like i dont even want to have my comp on its killing me.

any suggestions, preferably under $50

Don't know about noise at all, but Arctic Cooling makes good coolers and here's their AM2 version of their popular 775 one:

Just go to newegg and do a search for AM2 coolers. There's a few.


Cheers,

Chris

this is pure win. Cheap and VERY efficient. However make sure it fits into your computer before buying, it's not exactly the smallest possible cooler.

I would also recommend my cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835202005
It can keep my Q6600 cool enough to run at 3.6GHz for benchmarking.

that's pretty much the same as the scythe infinity. I was actually going to get that ocz cooler too, but none were available when I placed my order, it would have taken about 3-5 weeks for them to get one so I got another cooler since I really didn't feel like waiting that long. So I ended up getting the nexus xir-2300.

The infinity has a 120MM fan, the Vendetta only takes a 92MM like the Freezer 7 PRO. There is a review of my cooler here: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...-vendetta.html
It performs pretty well.

In case you didn't notice, the Xigmatek I listed is only a few degrees behind the TRUE, and only for $40.
