Default New cpu cooler

Hi everyone.

I'm considering buying a new cpu cooler so I can overclock my i5. I really don't have any idea which one to buy, can you give me suggestions. I don't want to spend more than 40€.

Thanks in advance for your help

GlobalData this is a good one, if you can find a mounting bracket for it.

I looked but I don't see any good ones that support the i5 or LGA1156 socket. There are a few good one listed but you'll need a LGA 1156 retention bracket for them, which they do make, but not yet available at your store.

I would buy one of these, in the order listed, but you'll still need to wait for the retention brackets. I can show you the brackets from a different site to prove they do make them

GlobalData - Thermalright True 120 C

GlobalData - Prolimatech Megahalems

You'll also need to buy a fan for these.

GlobalData - Scythe Kaze 120x38mm

I guess I'll have to wait for the retention brackets then
By the way why do I need to buy a fan for the case? My case already have a lateral fan and one on the front and one on the rear.

Thanks.
