  1. Alright, so recently my stock cooler for my CPU has been getting really annoying. It seems to get really loud during gaming, with my CPU temps averaging around 43c.

    So I decided to grab a new CPU cooler. Ive had my eyes on the
    COOLER MASTER V8


    But now after a little of reading up on the cooler, I'm a little concern about size and effectiveness. Here's my case if anyone knows if it will definitely fit.

    Also,id like to know if there are any other good CPU coolers out their along the same price range, that performs better.

    -Thanks In advance

    The V8 is still a very good cooler, and was top dog for its time. if you want the top performers now , you are going to pay another $30 for them.

    I have the Silver Arrow (3 fan) cooling an AMD Phenom II x6 1100T @ 4.3Ghz and It's stellar.

    Make sure you know the measurements of your case if you are getting a high end cooler.

    Thanks for the reply RED.
    I checked out the CPU coolers you linked they all look really nice. I think i have an idea on what i want to go with now for cooling.
