    Geekout What CPU Cooler Should I Get?

    Currently i'm rocking a Core i5-4590 (LGA1150) with the Intel Stock cooler. Looking into getting a air cooler. Have a budget of around 35$. Also I have 160MM of CPU heatsink support (NZXT Source 220 Windowed Edition). Any recommendations?

    Only 84 watts, almost anything would work. Just make sure it has the mount for LGA1150...

    Standard response for a cooler. The Hyper 212. Any version you can find that fits. Solid cooler for the price.

    Yep, the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo is one of the cheapest but quality coolers out there. It's $25 and fits every modern socket type from AMD and Intel.

    +2 on the hyper evo 212. That's what I am rocking in my case right now because I don't want to get liquid or closed loop cooling right now. Best bang for your buck dropped my idle temp by 10 degrees right off the bat.
