    The cooler I'm using cost less than £20 and does a great job.

    Currently running my I5 750 at 3,800mhz v1.3.

    A cheaper option.

    That tuniq tower doesnt come with a 1156 bracket and theres no sign of them releasing one yet, ive emailed tuniq about the bracket but had no reply after 4 days, so ive sent my tuniq back to ocuk

    personally i would avoid that cooler until it ships with the bracket and even so make sure your motherboard has plent of space around the cpu area otherwise you may not be able to fit the cooler , my msi p55 gd80 for instance has very little room and i figured that even with a 1156 bracket theres no way its going to fit as you cant get underneath it to tighten the fixing screws

    The tuniq should be ok if you can fit it , its quite wide and quite short as a product

    from a youtube video i saw its very loud but obviously comes with a fan controller to quieten it down, for the price its well worth considering on 1136
