I'm looking for reccommendations on a heatsink/fan for my FM1 socket. I have a quad-core unlock A6-3670k that I'm planning to OC. I wouldn't want to spend more than like $40. So I'm currently looking at these two with me leaning more towards the CM over the TT based solely on the first few reviews.

Can anyone suggest something better or which one might work better? Thanks.

Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus is your guy or the EVO. Best cheap air cooling solution available at $30. Does a nice job and should be better than the coolers you listed.

The good news is any cooler will pretty much work. AMD has done this very nice for consumers and the AM2, AM3, FM1 and FM2 all use the same cooler mount. The choices you have are wide open.

More or less all coolers will work with FM2.
