CPU heatsink supgrade
 
I currently have a Arctic Freezer Pro 7 for my E6600.

I am looking for an upgrage.

Cooling ability is the first concern. Being quiet would be the second concern, and price is the third.



Any recomendations?


Thanks :)

Here are some good ones:
Scythe Ninja Plus REV.B Heatpipe Fanless Heatsink

Thermaltake CL-P0114 Big Typhoon

Thermalright ULTRA-120 Extreme 6 Heatpipe Cooler

Noctua NH-U12F

And if you want extreme:

Coolermaster GeminII Copper Aluminum 6 Heatpipe Cooler

Matty, I'm selling Scythe Ninja Rev. B. Take a look at the thread http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...nja-rev-b.html

Out of all those the only two that are really worth mentioning is the Ninja and Ultra and the other one is the Sunbeam Tuniq.

The Noctua comes with a crappy fan that doesn't work to sell with the heatsink, the typhoon is just a beast and you can get something smaller and works better, and the Gemini II is just.... dumb.

Make sure whatever case you have can fit them tho as these heatsinks are massive.

Personally, I would buy the Ninja that Balistx is selling.

I agree, I'm not really a fan of the cooler master gemini II, it takes up alot of space for not much performance cooling. The Thermalright Ultra 120 IMO is the best of those picks, and depending on whether you decide to run it fanless or with a quiet fan, you can control its silence, Only downside is its not cheap (especially since it doesnt come with the fan). If anything, you could check out ULTRA 120 Extreme's little brother the ultima-90, same concept as the ultra-120, just much smaller and uses a 92mm fan or even a 120mm fan, performance is just around the Tuniq Tower I'd say. The Tuniq Tower is a good cooler as well.

I would recommend the gemini II only if the case has horrible ventilation and NB/memory would be needing air to be cirulated.

I like the idea that it doesn't come with a fan because its a true enthusiast cpu cooler and enthusiasts want every little bit of control of their system and that includes the fans they trust or wish to use.

You honestly can't go wrong with any of those 3 and it will come down to personal preference and cost because all 3 work VERY VERY good at what they are supposed to do.

Btw I run the tuniq.

Hey guys, the Scythe Ninja, is it much good with the stock cooler?
