    Need a new CPU cooler, Halp!

    I need to buy a new CPU cooler. I currently am using the stock cooler on my FX 8320. It sits about 40-45C idling and can get up to 80C while playing BF4.

    My options atm are either this: https://nz.************.com/part/cool...r-rr212e20pkr2

    or this: https://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139...Specifications

    What would be better for my CPU?

    Just put a cucumber in the pc. It always does the trick. Just remember to change the cucumber every 2 weeks, you don't want worms on your pc now do you.

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves youeven, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.

    I literally don't know much about computer parts. So what I do, instead of asking people to do my shopping for me, is to look up reviews on the items that I'm interested in buying. I compare them and then get the one that proves to be the better option.

    TL;DR
    Stop being a lazy cunt and do your own research.

    I've been doing that. I just want other peoples opinions on what they'd get and reviews if they've used them before. I want the reassurance that I've chosen good parts for good prices.
    Oh hai der.

    Mellow
    I've researched a few for a new Gaming PC I'm going to build soon.

    The one I'm probably going to use is this one: NZXT Respire T20 CPU Cooler

    It's pretty cheap but apparently it does a good job of keeping the CPU cool.
