Your thoughts guys?
Idk why I forgot about this cooler when I posted before but the Thermaltake Frio actually outperforms both the Noctuna and Tuniq on AMD platforms. I would still get some TX-2 thermal paste to go with it t6hough. - Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 (six-core ready) & i5 Compatible Five 8mm Heatpipes Dual 120mm Fans Intel & AMD Universal CPU Cooler CLP0564
