Which one should I get?

Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B ($45.49) or Noctua NH-L12 ($70)

on a GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813128546

Probably going to have an i7-3770. Socket LGA 1155

My case is a p180 or p182. I have two Nexus 120mm PWM Fan D12SL-12 PWM.

I see from this thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=65934 the NH-L12 with i7-3770S at 60s is normal now. (I was hoping it would be cooler) than my current E8400.

lol, the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B for $45 was out of stock.

I guess I get the Noctua NH-L12.

Ivy Bridge temps run hotter than many of the previous generations. The NH-L12 is nice. You could also get the Thermalright TRUE Spirit 120M and substitute in the Nexus fan for ~$50-55.

If you are going for a discrete video card, an Xeon e3-1230v2 could save enough money to pay for a nice heat sink upgrade.

If you need integrated graphics, an e3-1245v2 will still save a few bucks.

Thanks, I think I'll go that route. It is $44 at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thermalright-TS ... 27d1acca92

Edit: $40 + tax = $43.49 @ superbiiz.com


@QUIET!, I am going to try to find a i7-3770 for $225 or less or so. Possibly used, but I'll see when Haswell come out if there is a selling spree for inventory or people who just upgrade. I was initially thinking the i5 3570, but it seems its all ~$200 anyways.

I got the HIS iSilence H775P1GD Radeon HD 7750 for GPU already.

Thanks for the info.
