Using i5-4590 with stock cooler atm,on medium or heavy loads sound is true pain in the *** putting it simply. Ain't need any high end cooler since my CPU isn't overclockable anyway just want a significantly more silent one,preferably 25$ and below.Oh and it's height should be 90mm or below!..yeah I know it complicates the situation,but those vertical fan heatsink cubes are just not for me.
Ones I considered: Arctic Cooling Freezer 11-LP (really nice looking,on the other hand can low profle fan handle my CPU on long gaming streaks? probably not.. the airflow is low too) Arctic Cooling Alpine 11 Plus (uhm.. that square heatsink, ain't sure probably hard to mount on mATX board,but heard some decent responses about that CPU due to its unrivaled cheapnesssilence and fairly decent performance) Arctic Cooling Alpine 11 Pro Rev.2 .. aint know anything about this one Cooler Master Vortex PLUS the design just.. well ain't think could it hold on because the PC is getting shaked time to time and sometimes can suffer a kick,would like CPU cooler to remain firmly in place in those circumstances.
Anyone know any other preferably superior ones than these?
