    Cocage Arrow also know as the Thermalright Silver Arrow, minus the heat pipe caps. Two CM Excalibur fans keep it cool, usually ambient air temp, on a X58 sli rev. 1 and a 960 oc'ed at 4.25ghz since it was installed.

    My other i7 is cooled by a Noctua NH-12, both lapped but no longer as heavily oced.

    My goto heatsink for recommendations has and probably always will be the CM Hyper 212, I've installed more of those than any other heatsink and sold even more.

    Cooler Master 212 EVo and my case is a Corsair Carbide Spec -03 with five fans. It's really silent, the only thing I hear sometimes it's the video card.

    Cryorig R1 Ultimate - LAPPED

    Not a well known brand in the air-cooling public, but beats both Phanteks PH-TC14PE and Noctua NH-D15.

    I've got a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO in my main rig cooling a G3258 @ 4.6/1.26, and an ID-COOLING IS-40 in my eventually-SFF rig cooling an E7400 @ stock.

    lets be fair... most of the coolers in that price range have 1-2 degree differences and it does very much depend on the rig your running that from... its a great coolers and runs the same number as the phankteks and the noctua ... the only diff is the noctua is very expensive. its the cryorig decent on noise?
