Cooler for new build?

  DJfree33 18:45 16 Jul 2011

Hello all,

I am just in the process of building my new PC for Gaming, and not sure what CPU cooler to go for. Build so far is:

1)Asrock Z68 PRO3 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard.

2)Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CAS8 1.5V Non-ECC Unbuffered.

3)Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz Socket 1155 6MB Cache

4)Sapphire RADEON HD 4870-1GB-GDDR5 SDRAM

5)Antec P190 Case

6)Windows 7

want something that is resonably quiet and not silly expensive.

this: better if you want a more reasonable price.

Have a look here,1/Cooling,7/ just make sure that any thing you do buy will fit and not obstruct any memory slots.

Most decent coolers give about same temps but some are very noisy.
