Default Need very good yet very cheap CPU cooler!

Hey all, I am building another PC and this time it is mean;t for overclocking. I have a Pentium D 945 (3.4GHz) and want to overclock it to the max. I would like to find a cooler that is good value for money.

Any ideas?

Regards,
AJ.

Yeah, I stand along side rudster816 when I say the Cooling Freezer is the cheapest, yet most effective solution apart from water cooling, or a very very loud fan.
The Arctic Cooling Freezer is whisper quiet, and can't be heard above everything else most of the time.

I have the 64 edition for my AMD, and its never been cooler.

Well worth the small price

Just make sure your case can support it. Its pretty hefty.

Not knowing what you consider cheap, I'm going to throw this out. I have it, and i love it.

i dont think that is quite neccasarry because i dont think a pentium D can OC enough to need to spend that kind of money
