Hi there,

I have a 880gma ud2h Mobo in a Lian Li V351 - a setup which I am very happy with.  However, I would like to replace my stock AMD HSF and was wondering if anyone had any advice.  Due to the size limitations of both the case and the mobo I think I have narrowed it down to one of the three coolers listed below:

Scythe Shuriken Rev. B

Scythe Samurai ZZ

CoolerMaster Gemin 2 S

I am looking for a good mix of cooling ability and noise reduction.  Does anyone have any experience with these CPU coolers on this Mobo and or this case?

Thanks

  With a little digging on each unit (google) you should be able to find out the DBA (noise) rating and Thermal ability (WATTS) that the fan/sink can get rid of,   reviews are invaluable in this regard.

  Recommendation are good but I prefer to trust my own eyes, ....hope this is of help as I have no experience with Air much these days!

As Allan says, research is invaluable when swapping the stock cooler for a 3rd party one and with your Lian Li case it is even more important.

Being totally honest any of the three coolers you have linked to will do the job you require but, if it were my money I would probably choose the Coolermaster as it seems to be the quietest.

Of course, you could save a bit of money by just changing the fan on the AMD stock cooler. I have done this on a few builds and it is amazing the difference a decent 3rd party fan brings.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
