Hi! I know I haven't really been posting important threads in the last few weeks, but this is an important one. And I need to make the decision fast.

I found, for very similar prices, the coolers listed above. I have a heap of information about the Scythe Ninja 3 about cooling the Xeon X5650, but no information on the Arctic Freezer Xtreme, which looks pretty good and is very silent.

So, which one would cool better a Xeon X5650 and, of course, which will be able to overclock it further?

P.S.: Please don't tell me about coolers like NH-D14. I know they exist, but I can't spend that much money on a piece of metal with something that spins fast sticked to it.

I think the scythe may cool better slightly. It is more expensive. Personally I like the be quiet! Dark rock 3. It might be a bit more expensive, but it is quiet and cools well.

I know that the "Be Quiet! Dark Rock 3" cools well, I wanted to buy it, but that is over my cooler's budget, which is $45.

Oh, and by "slightly" what do you mean in terms of degrees celsius?

I have no way of knowing, there are too many variables(ambient temperature, amount and type of thermal paste, fans, ventilation, system load) maybe you should read some consumer reviews.

I know I should, but they are generally related to Phenom X4s, on the Arctic Freezer Xtreme, and on the Scythe Ninja, they are about i7 4790Ks, i5 4670Ks and modern processors. I could have solved the problem by just reading reviews, but I couldn't do that because of the reason above, that's why I posted a thread. I know, my last threads have kinda been solved by me, but I don't think it'll be the same on this one.
