Need advice for a CPU cooler W/Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P

I've had my PC for a while using the stock AMD fan. The stock fan is okay... however it's loud and I would like to OC in the future which isn't really an option with the stock cooler.

I wanted to ask you guys what CPU cooler I should get with a budget of £20 - £40. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.




CPU: AMD FX-8350

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P ATX AM3+ Motherboard

If you need any more information just ask.


You are not going to get a good overclock out of that motherboard as it has a 4+1 power phase you are going to run in to throttleing or melt the power phase.

If you whant a cheap cooler the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is still the best bang for buck cpu cooler there is for £25

Okay thank you.

avoid the cooler master and get yourself a thermalright true spirit 140. I looked it up in amazon UK and found this awesome deal

If you haven't heard of thermalright, it is one of the top heatsink companies that used to be very popular back in the day. Nowadays for some reason I don't hear much about it. This cooler pretty much blows most of the others in its price range. just look at the reviews and be amazed.
