Best liquid cooler under 80 USD?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It's a very long story, but basically I want to see the best liquid cooler for 80 or under. And yes yes yes, I know the counter argument but I don't need to see the "just get air" replies. I'm putting it in a meshify c tg atx case, which has options for 

120/240/360 mm

140/280 mm (max 144 mm width) radiators.

 preferably white/black/rgb, but I won't really sacrifice performance unless its super ugly. 


(BTW, no used parts please).

What is better, a 240 rad or a 120 with push pull? I'm thinking the 240 right?

Go with the H100X

If you have a space contraint and need a 120mm, the H80 offers similar performance while being a smaller cooler. Though it will run slightly faster/louder to do so.

Just a heads up, be aware that the Meshify C is a short case, and if you have a long GPU (like my previous 1080 Strix), it may prevent you from mounting the radiator to the front. Also, too big of a radiator may interfere with the motherboard VRM cooling for top mounting (like my previous H115i (280mm)).
