is the SR slim worth the extra $14 AUD?

Yeah, it's still decently priced.

Hi.

I am currently running a fx 8350 (125 W TDP) with stock cooling, the fan is really loud and i would like better temps. I have my eyes on the Cryorig H7, Be quite pure rock and hyper 212x. My budget is around the $70 AU ($45 US) area and i want a cooler with support for intel 115x and the AMD  AM3+ sockets.

 

I am hoping someone can help me choose what would be the best cooler or maybe have another suggestion. I live in Australia BTW. 

 

Cheers!

 

P.s my tower can fit about 150mm high cooler (inwin mana 136) from measuring it just now, i cant find official sizes anywhere but if necessary i am willing to do modifications to the side panel but would rather not.

Oh, sweet.

which one of those would you say is best value for money. the pure rock and 212x are couple dollars apart ($45 and $49 respectively) and the h7 is $65?

I couldn't say, haven't used either and they look almost identical from what I can tell.  Probably go with the 212x simply due to having the 212EVO for years and it worked great, no noise and I OC"d my 4670K to 4.4GHz easily.

No, it's a lower TDP and is more for small cases that can't fit a full size cooler.  Skip it.

are you looking at the shadow rock slim or pure rock slim, because i was referring to the shadow rock slim which doesn't match with what you said (they really need to work on their naming scheme IMO)?

Are these Canadian prices? Can't imagine why the 212 is so expensive. I recommend the Be Quiet cooler, since you specified quiet, effective cooling.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

You're right, it popped up the Shadow Rock LP.  Found this in a review comparing Shadow Rock Slim vs Pure Rock..

 

Either will be good for the job however what is the make and model of your case? The Shadow Rock Slim is 5mm shorter than the Pure Rock cooler. FYI apart from heat dissipation, they will be the same in terms of temps when compared to the Hyper 212X. Only thing is the Be Quiet! cooler will be quieter.

The Cryorig H7 is an excellent choice, same for the be quiet! Pure Rock. Please do not get a Hyper 212X, the Hyper 212 should not be a consideration in today's market.

 

Another suggestion I can put forward is the Arctic Freezer 33 eSports One, it's a cooler which should easily fit in your budget, and is a great option for both performance and visuals.

Certainly not at that price, but they're still discoverable here and there at $25 USD this was the appeal to begin with.

There are much better options at a little more cost. It's poorly-built, has the most bare-bone construction, it's difficult to install, it looks like a $5 cooler, and was made over half a decade ago, it's not a good choice anymore.

They are awful to install tbh. It's one of the reasons why if you can i would go with a similar performing cooler from a diffrent brand.

I still prefer the 212x installation over the H7.

Asides from ease of installation, the SR Slim is better than every other cooler mentioned so far.

so the pure rock is the best value then, and will handle the 8350 fairly well?

The Pure Rock is plenty if you're not planning to oc much or at all and is very quiet. If you do want to oc, the Ninja 4 seems to be not much more than the SR Slim and performs substantially better: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/RZfmP6/scythe-cpu-cooler-scnj4000

Can I get confirmation on the shipping price listed for the Ninja 4 from Amazon? It's listing $22.51 but I'm not sure if that's because I'm in the US.

Ninja 4 cost is pretty high shipped, and i can't find any retailers that sell it here either, besides Ebay but thats about the same or more.

i do want to do a little OC because the IPC of the FX chips is a not great. 

is the SR slim worth the extra $14 AUD?
