Need a decent CPU Cooler for my Opteron 165 (939)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys....Well I'm looking for a good, efficient CPU Cooler for my AMD Opteron 165 (939 pin). I have looked through some comparison graphs and reviews at anadtech, and I have picked the following:

 

Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme

EnzoTech Ultra-X

Monsoon II Lite

Tunic Tower 120

Thermalright Ultra 120

Zalman CNPS9700

Cooler Master Hyper 6+

 

....although most of the above are a bit expensive :P....is there anything good in the $30~$40 range ? Or any good deal for any of the above ?

look at the Zalman 9500 series they are just as good as the 9700 and smaller and within 1-2c of the 9700....and can bet had for about your budget...

 

I have both and i'd definately get another one...they do have sales on them and I have seen them as low as 39.00...

Also try a Thermalright Ultima-90, I have it, my temps are always around 30c idle and 25c when I'm not using my computer for anything. Highest usually doesn't go over 50c

I have also come across two classics: Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, and Thermalright XP-120.....I know both are good, but not sure how would they compare with uber cool stuff like Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, and Tuniq Tuner 120..

I can personally recommed the XP-120, at one point I had my 165 up to 2.7Ghz on stock volts. I lost the overclock when I had to reinstall my OS. So have to settle for 2.67 haha. My friend has the Tuniq and it cools better than the XP-120 but it is super duper huge. I mean half an inch from the side of the case haha, I love it.

I'm sure they're both good. Just go for aesthetics and value. The only real step up from those two is the Tuniq.
