Default AMD64 939 Cooler Suggestions ....

Hey,

I was going to be getting a 3000+ retail but i might be able to get a 3500+ OEM for £95 (friend of a friend works for ebuyer ). So any suggestions to a good cooler, i dont want to spend to much but i dont want a crappy one that isnt going to work properly either. Links would be useful too please

Thanks
- Chris

wow, I don't know what the conversion is on that to US dollars, but I know it's a lot cheaper than the $225+ it is for that 3500 over here.

I'd suggest looking into the Thermalright SLK series heatsinks, or the Thermaltake XP series heatsinks.

Zalman makes a good heatsink but is rather large.

Also, guy named mike in these forums just bought a Tower 112 I believe it is and it's givin him nice and cool temps, his was for XP but I wouldn't doubt if they have a AMD64 version as well.

That thing is an absolute monster, real heavy but real effective appearantly.

well the retail 3500+ cost £180 so the retail will be a bit less than that.

I will have a look at those thermaltake ones.

edit: well i can only found thermaltake and its not for amd, and no thermalright ones.
Im going to have a look somewhere else lol.

Thermaltake Venus 12

I have this and as you can tell it keeps my temps pretty low <<--<<

They are a bit noisy, but are small and great coolers.
