I want to get a new hsf but i don't know what brand to get. Does anybody know of one that works great? I was looking at these:

1. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...118-104&depa=0

2. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...118-108&depa=0

3. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...186-102&depa=0

4. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-139&depa=0

5. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...106-032&depa=0

6. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...113-007&depa=0

My price range is $35, I think I'm going to go with #4. What do u guys think.

I've been doing some research as well and found this little puppy to be a pretty good setup

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...103-144&DEPA=1

30 degrees idle and 36 degrees load is pretty damn good for $50

Check this out they reviewed a few of them..I will be purchasing one of these bad boys tmr

Out of the ones shown above, I would go for 2, the Zalman. If you can strech to $40, this Thermalright is very good.

ThermalTake Spark 7+ (Xaser Edition) for performance.

ZALMAN for a quiet system, these still provide adequate cooling.

instead of going for the Aero 4, look at the Cooler Master Jet 4.

spend a little more and get the thermalright. it works great even with a modest fan bolted on. dont go cheap in this area if you want performance and protection go with the best.

the best HS w/o fan is the Swiftech MVX462-V. I am overclocking 600mhz with it idle at 38 and load at 43. If not overclocking just get a $15-$20 one.
