Processor Coolers

Processor coolers attach to your processor and keep the temperature of your processor down. A cooler processor will have a longer lifespan, overclock much better and run with greater stability. They also aid noise reduction and improve case air flow. A popular option for all gaming computers as they offer good gains for little money.

When choosing an overclocking option these are essential to ensuring a good overclock amount is achieved and can be fitted to non overclocked processor to reduce noise levels.

 

 

Stock heatsink and fan

The standard CPU cooler that comes with a processor. They do exactly what they say on the tin - keep your processor cool enough to run at stock speeds. Useless for overclocks!
