Cooling - Air

Air coolers, heatsinks and fans. Third-party cooling solutions can help you achieve lower temperatures, better overclocking and lower noise than the coolers typically supplied with cases and components. Here, you'll find coolers for processors, graphics cards and other components to suit every budget and style, from high performance towers and hydro coolers to discrete or even passive heatsinks.

120mm System & Case Fans

Ideal for today's high-end cases, these fans rotate at a slower speed than standard fans but due to the increased surface area this ensures a larger volume of air is passed which in turn means a cooler quieter PC system.

Active Fan Multi CPU Coolers

Each cooler here is compatible with the modern AMD and Intel sockets, and include at least one fan to blow over over the heatsink. Some models include multiple fans to please make sure your motherboard has sufficient free fan headers available, if not you will need to purchase a fan splitter. There's something for every budget but, as ever, ensure the cooler will fit in your case. Clearance with motherboard components is also worth checking, especially with the large units, some of which will let you add a second fan.

AMD CPU Air Coolers

From dinky low-profile units that fit in the tightest confines to larger models that offer better CPU temperatures and reduced noise, these third-party coolers provide a host of benefits over the stock AMD cooler. Make sure your chosen cooler is compatible with your CPU, that it won't interfere with other components on your motherboard like RAM or heatsinks and that it will fit inside your case.

Cooler Brackets & Fittings

Not all coolers fit all of Intel and AMD's processor sockets, so these kits can be used to make a heatsink work with a previously-unsupported motherboard. This category also includes spare screws, fan attachment brackets and other accessories for popular coolers - perfect if you've lost a crucial component.

Fan Controllers / Front Panel IO

It's worth thinking about a fan controller if you've fitted your machine with numerous cooling fans and third-party heatsinks. These are generally installed inside the front 5.25in bays of your case and are used to monitor temperatures and fan speeds - so you can speed fans up if your hardware's struggling or slow fans down to quieter speeds if you have the headroom. Basic models are affordable but have fewer features, and pricier products include high-end features such as touchscreens and Internet connectivity.

Graphics Card Cooler Kits

VGA coolers are the best way to cool your Graphics card when overclocking. This prevents damage to your components and can also decrease fan noise on certain graphics cards. Updated

View:

Intel CPU Air Coolers

Third-party Intel coolers seek to better the standard processor heatsink with improved temperatures and quieter fans. Different Intel CPUs can have different sockets, so ensure that your cooler matches your socket. Also be sure that any cooler you buy will fit onto your motherboard and into your case without issue.

Motherboard Chipset Coolers

Chipset coolers are the best way to cool your motherboard chipsets when overclocking. This prevents damage to your components and can also decrease fan noise.

Multi CPU All-In-One Hydro Coolers

These coolers allow anyone to water-cool their processor. They combine the pump, tubing, radiator and fans into a single, sealed unit that's simple to install and doesn't require maintenance or filling, and they're compatible with modern Intel and AMD sockets. They can cope with high-end, overclocked CPUs too, but larger models with more fans will have lower temperatures and noise levels. You need to make sure your case has the appropriate size and number fan mounts and enough space for the radiator and fans.

Passive Silent Multi CPU Coolers

These heatsinks can cool processors passively, utilising existing case airflow rather than their own fans, although some can also have fans attached for added performance. They're unsuitable for high-end, overclocked CPUs but are perfect for building silent PCs. Just check motherboard and case clearance first, as while they offer multi-socket compatibility they're usually pretty large.

RAM Memory Coolers

High-end memory modules can be overclocked to deliver extra speed. If you fancy ramping up your RAM, coolers like these will improve heat dissipation and prevent turbo-charged chips from overheating. They look fantastic, too, so they're useful if you're going for a particular aesthetic in your latest PC build.

Thermal Paste & Pads

Thermal paste is used to create a heat conducting medium between your heatsink and processor/chip. This aids in the maximum possible heat transfer away from your chip and into the heat sink. Allowing your chip to run as cool as possible and hence allows your heat sink to do what it is meant to do.
