Default Corsair H50 or other high end Air Cooler

Dont think anyone will be selling a H50 but its worth a try.. My hyper 212 cant keep my i7 860 cool at 4ghz so im in the market for a higher end air cooler or h50. Let me know what you got.

h50 cooler is very nice, have it on my i5 overclocked to 4ghz (1.35v), doesnt go over 70c underload(prime95) for more than 24 hours. The bracket maybe tricky to assemble at first, but after that it's easy to mount. I have discounts for a new h50 cooler ($68.41+tax and ship) if you are interested.

sorry to threadcrap, but I highly suggest a true, megahelem, venemous or the dual tower noctua for the i7 860 (sorry for wrong spelling-stupid model names). I was OCing my friend's 860 and the hyper 212+ sucked, couldn't get past 3.85ghz without my friend complaining of crazy ass high temps. the h50 won't be much of an improvement, though you'll notice it runs much quieter and looks better (depending on your taste), while one of those monstrous non-hdt coolers listed above will work wonders for 860 @ 4.0ghz

In my experience the H50 is around the same as the TRUE and close enough to the rest of them. I used it on a 920 4.2ghz never had problem. It's quiet and doesn't take a lot of room in the case. It's what I now use and not even thinking of going back to a big ass cooler. To the OP it's worth a try.

Yeah, the h50 definently appeals to me due to size and looks. As long as it can keep my i7 860 at 4ghz under 75c, im happy
