So its getting close to Christmas and I'm going to have some extra money to spend and want to get a CPU cooler so I can OC my 920 stock at 2.66GHZ up to around 3.2GHZ, and the fact that it already runs hot enought (high 60's C when under load, 45 C Idle), and I've tried remounting over and over.
So I was looking at the Cooler Master V8
. I like the look of the V10 over the V8, but there is a big difference in price between the two (the V8 is about half the price of the V10)
Now for the Questions:
-- Is the V10 much better than the V8?
-- I know what a mobo "bending" or "warping" is, but can that happen with these, cause they are a bit heavy?
-- How bad is mobo "bending" or "warping", does it happen in days, weeks, months, years?
I know there are other coolers out there, so let me know what you guys prefer and think does the best job. (I looked at some Scythe coolers a while back and liked them, but since I have a CM HAF 932, I figured I'd try and go with the style of my case.)
Price limit is $100 or less, maybe more if its thats good.
