    Like the title says, i'm getting THIS to cool my CPU, but I need a good 120mm fan to go with it.

    I've a stock Lian-li from my K62 case, but it's not very good. Sacrifices CFM for dB.

    Any good recommendations?

    Akasa Apache, or Enermax Everest if you LEDs.

    TBH - i've done a bit of research since the initial post and i've came across THIS for cheaper.

    I was set on the TRUE until I saw the reviews for the Cogage.

    Any thoughts?

    Very good cooler, I changed my mind and went with the Cogage to, my i7 920 3.8 idles at 39/40 and about 65 full load. Bit of a pain to fit tho (damn pushpins) you might wanna get the bolting kit for like £10 I think it could drop temps even further, i plan to get it soon.

    One question hooFlungDung, why buy the TRUE Spirit + 1336 bolt through kit and not just buy a TRUE Rev C, you only saved £6.01 :confused: Well ok it comes with a fan but still...

    True + Akasa AK-FN057 Apache = £66.46

    Cogage + Bolt-through= £46.47

    Edit: ok fan might be expensive, but the saving is still there for the performance.

    You dont need an overpriced fan like that on a TRUE Rev C :p

    Plenty of 1500 or 2000rpm fans that cost around £7.00 which do the job, hell the two i use for push/pull cost all of £5 each and have decent CFM. Still im sure your be happy all the same, enjoy. :)

    I not questioning the coolers quality, just the savings as far more cooler could have been had which included bolt through kit. :)

    Ok then, knock £7 off the TRUE total and i'm still £13 better off.

    I tried to set myself a budget of £50 that went to **** when I saw reviews of the TRUE, so I said **** it and went over, then saw the Cogage and thought I could save some cash. I'm spending enough on this build as it is tbh...

    The benchmarks look pretty good though.

    If it's an improvement over Akasa AK-967 then yes I would say one of the best sub £30.00 coolers :)

    Id reccomend sharkoon silent eagle se pwm fans, sadly oc doesnt stock them, quiet as a mouse but they shift a lot of air.
