Need cooler recommendation

Recommended Posts

I have a weakly Venus 7+ for my opteron 148 which will do 3ghz+ but with 1.59 or 1.6V. I need to keep this bad boy cool so I need a new cooler. I would appreciate any thoughts on the best air cooling period, or the best value in aircooling. Thanks in advance!

Best value, without a doubt, is the XP-90. SVC has a deal right where the XP-90 is only $25 after using a coupon code. Amazing deal.

 

The coupon code can be found in the SVC sticky at the top of this section.

I think I have narrowed it down to these three:

 

XP-90C For $46 with fan

Scythe Ninja for $50 with fan

Scythe Shogun for $70 with fan (a bit expensive..)

 

What do you guys think?

The XP-90C isn't worth it in my opinion. You're paying $20 more for maybe a two degree loss in temperatures. If you think that the XP-90 isn't going to be enough for you--I doubt that--then you could always go for an XP/SI-120 with a more powerful 120MM fan.

I think I am going to go with the scythe ninja with the fan...it blows the air right out of the case (toward my 120mm exhaust) and is quiet. Are there any incompatibilities with my ultra-d? thanks for your help man...
