Cheaper but amazing cooler Arctic 7

Epic Cooler Asus Triton


My experience with coolers is that they dont really make much of a difference. Buying a better thermal paste and making sure i have good airflow usually helped me out more when oc'ing

Xigmatek HDT S1283

Best price to performance ratio out there. Is within a few degrees C of the TRU 120, which costs cover $100 easily.
