That's the cooler you want around your price range. I recommend really nothing else.

that is a good price.

Default Re: cooling

well after looking at all coolers in my price range i bit the bullet and went a little more money than i wanted and got this one:
Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan with Heatsink - Retail

my said freind said it was the next best thing to liquid cooling and i expect he is right! in lord of the rings online and half life 2 i was at 48c-50c at higher settings
and now i hardly break 38c! and it doesn't sound like a plane is idling in the room either! i highly reccomend it.

he is wrong becuase there are pretty much 5 coolers that beat the Zalman and they were all around that price while some cheaper. The Zalman is so expensive becuase of it's looks. I mean it does cool well enough but there are better coolers for the money if you were willing to give up the look of the Zalman.
