Best closed loop cooler?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I want to get the best/cheapest closed looped single rad CPU cooler, Suggestions?

 

I need it to be compatible with Intel socket and my budget is $60-$70ish. I was thinking the corsair H60?

Do you have to go with a closed loop cooler? with 60-70 bucks you can get a really nice air cooler that will perform better than the H60.

When you say "carry your case" what do you mean by that?

not really. both are made out of metal and other stuff and water cooler has water to add to the weight.

the difference is where that weight is hanging from. 

 

air coolers tend to put more strain on the mother board (but with a proper back plate this will not be an issue)

 

and a water cooler put all the wight to the case.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. Just make sure that you case can fit it.

60-70 can get you a crazy good air cooler. I've seen NH-D14s drop to that level. Of course, that would be overkill, but it would outperform the H60 by a LOT.
