Hi, so I decided that I need to OC my CPU and I've read that overclock from 2.6Ghz to 3.6Ghz and that's a huge difference, however I need a better cooler than my stock one.

I was looking at these two - zalman CNPS5X-Performa and Cooler Master Hyper TX3.

It's hard to find a cooler because some say that zalman is bad, some say cooler master tx3 is bad so I can't decide which to take or maybe are there other coolers around?

 

I probably need to decrease 10-15°C+.

coolermaster hyper 212+evo $25

 

can't go wrong with that.

 

holds my 4ghz i5-760 on 60c using gaming (no matter how long i play it)

i've had the tx3 and the hyper212+evo shaves off a nice 7 to 10c off that tx3, so get that hyper 212+ its a beast.

 

from stock cooler to the hyper212 it was around 25c decrease in temps, for reference material :)

You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

Hyper 212 evo for 25 bucks? Show me where... Probably shipping will cost more than the cooler itself.

its the cheapest best cooler you're gonna get for that bang for buck.

Cheapest I can find is on ebay but that's 60-70 bucks including shipping. Same with amazon I think.
