Greetings.
I have a 4770k running at 4ghz with arctic freezer 7 pro (rev1 from my old pc)
i may have put too much paste on the cpu but i dont like how the cooler fits and want to replace it.
i would like to get to about 4.2-4.4 ghz but my temps at the moment are at their limit
using "realtemp"
idle 33-37
full load (p95) 89-93
ambient temp is about 27-33
my budget is limited (around 50$)and in my country the products are limited too.
i dont mind a noisy fan, my goal is lowest temps as possible.
from the following list which of these cooler will best fit my needs.
1. Zalman Extreme CNPS11X
2. Scythe Mugen 4
3. Arctic Freezer i30 CO
4. Arctic Freezer i11
5. Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 CO
6. Noctua NH-U9B SE2
7. Scythe Ninja 3
8. Scythe Ashura Shadow
thanks in advance.
Rsini.

None of those coolers are likely to give you better temps than you have now at the OC you want. I'd save my money and go with one of the higher tier Noctua, Phanteks, Cryorig or Thermalright air coolers, unless you're willing to do an AIO liquid cooler. Don't bother with any of the smaller liquid coolers as they're not going to give you much if any improvement over the better air coolers. Of the one's you have listed, the Mugen is probably the best.
