Hi Im looking to overclock my i5 750 to 3.4ghz and im not sure which cooler to use as the stock Intel one is all im using at the moment. I was thinking about getting this one:

Will it be suitable for overclocking, or can you recommend the best cooler for the job. Im not wanting to spend too much about $70 - $90.

I'm looking to upgrade myself, the stock intel cooler for my i5 760 is just simply ... crap.

The current weather isn't helping temps within my PC case either 38/40 on idle and 70/72 on load... on stock speeds :(

I just purchased the Noctua NH-C12P SE14 for my 1090T and plan to fit it this weekend.
Temps (stock CPU cooler) for CPU in my system has been around 38 idle and 50 under load so hoping the Noctua with lower the temp at a slower fan speed.

When shopping for my CPU cooler I found I was quite limited due to my case size.
My preference would have been a tower cooler with a 140mm fan on the side with the lowest rpm possible.
But due to lack of clearance on my case the Noctua was the biggest I could go for and had pretty good reviews.

I'd check on Google to see if the cooler will be compatible with your mobo.. Noctua's site had a list of compatible mobo's and might pay to measure the inside of your case if your going for a big cooler

that is a pretty good cooler. But you can buy it new from somewhere like ComputerLounge for under $60

if you can spend a bit more then this: http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=14091 is a really good cooler. Remember to check clearance in your case though

try a corsair H50 and add a second fan to get the push-pull design the H70 offers . performance of the h70 at a lower price.
they are the equivalent to the best air cooling made

He said $70 to $90. So double what he would want to try and spend vs not double what he could ultimately spend. So realistically it is $69 over what he would like to try and spend. And $79 over what he could spend on getting an arctic 7. I fail to see how that is worthwhile at all. The H50 isn't that good.

And while we are at it, lets add another $59 for the fan in that review which makes the total cost...........ridiculous.
