I recently Built an AMD 4200+,ASRock A780GXH/128M, 4 gigs Corsair 800Mhz ram, in a Cooler Master CM 690 case. I overclocked the 4200+ from 2.2Ghz to 2.6Ghz. Now to get to 2.8Ghz I feel I need a better cooler. Any suggestions?Alan

I can only review what I have used.

Xigmatek S1283, Xigmatek Dark Knight, and Scythe MUGEN-2. All were used on overclocked I7 920s, and all did a great job. The MUGEN-2 was the best of the three, but it is so da*ned big. One thing you need to pay attention to with AMD mounts is that the cooler can't be "clocked" in any direction, you are limited in your mounting options. It matters when you have RAM with tall heatsinks.

Sometimes you can find the S1283 for $29, which is a bargain.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)
