Remember to check the size of the processor cooler to make sure it goes into the tower. Also, the compatibility with the motherboard, see on the manufacturer website. The last fans have made a lot of progress since then, while those of 2009 allowed to cool the processor between 194-212 ° F at full load, we now reach 140 ° F.

Watercooling allows you to cool the processor further, which is very useful for overclocking. But this technique is a little noisier, we hear a noise of pump.

Given the number of notes, the Noctua NH-D15 seems to be the best CPU cooler.
