Cheapest water cooler for fx 8350 @4.5ghz?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to know what is the cheapest water cooler for the 8350 which would keep the temps below 80C and still pass all the stress tests and benchmarks @4.5 ghz overclock.

Thanks in advance.

Why not just get a high end air cooler for the price of an entry water cooler. What is your budget anyways? I would suggest the Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme, Phanteks PH-TC14PE, Noctua NH-D14, and the Noctua NH-U14S. A good water cooler would be the H80i from Corsair.

Do you already have that cpu? If not, i suggest the black edition, comes with a AIO cooler, very good one i might add.

You can get the FX 8350 to 4.8Ghz on a Noctua NH-D14 or an NZXT Havik 140, no need to watercool , 8 core FX CPUs overclock very easily.

I got my FX 8320 to 4.4Ghz Turbo on the stock cooler, max temp is 52c (maximum safe temp for the FX 8 core CPUs is 62c), the stock cooler does get obnoxiously loud though because of its tiny fan.

In air coolers, in my country I have -hyper 212x, hyper 412, deepcool ice warrior cooler, deepcool neptwin and gamer storm.

In water coolers- all corsair coolers (h80i and h100i are quite expensive and exceeds my budget) and cooler masters seidon (which is a little bit cheap).

I do not have the CPU, I'm doing a custom built so please help.

Max safe is 62 that is your goal but it all matters on airflow of case also your chip

But I would say s h80i push/ pull or h100i any thing around that will be good to get u to 4.5

So look at cooler master nzxt corsair they all make them so look to cost about 80 - 140

Watch those temps! An intel cpu would be ok with those but your 8350 would be dead if it reached those temps.

 

I would not go for a water cooler any lower than the h100. Below that a good air cooler is better

I have a 2nd gaming system, specs as follow:

AMD FX8350 @4.5ghz

Asus Crosshair V Formula

4x 4GB RipJawsX 2133mhz

2x GTX670 SLi

Corsair HX1050

 

Now, for cooling, I'd gotten a Hyper 412Slim, but I took out the crap stock fans and replaced them with a single Corsair SP Performance fan. With my room ambient temp set at 25C, my FX8350 #4.5ghz idles at 32C.....and I don't see it past 65C under load. I don't run those stability test programs so I can't say how good the temps on my is, but I play games, rip MP3 and movies with this rig and I'd not had any hardware related issue.
