    Those temps are fine for no overclock but if you plan to overclock then a hyper 212 evo would be a nice cheaper option which gives good overclocking headroom.
  2. Haha, you're perfectly fine.

    If you aren't overclocking, you don't need a new cooler, and temps of 40 degrees are nothing - the 3570k can easily sustain temps in the low 70s without harm.
  3. thanks i might consider the evo if i do ever decide to oc
