I recently bought an Intel i5 3570k for a new PC I'm putting together. I'm really try to keep the noise level to a minimum and I'm looking for a CPU cooler to reduce the noise compared to the stock cooler. I don't intend to overclock, but it would be nice to keep the temps low. I'm also not interested in water cooling. I've heard good things about the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, but I haven't found out much about it's noise levels compared to the stock cooler.

Any suggestions?

I'll vouch for the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. You won't hear it over your case and case fans. Especially running low.

The noise level is going to come from the fans you use on the cooler.

The EVO 212 is a respectable cooler but the fans aren't silent - I've owned one. You can upgrade the fan to a quieter fan though.

Thanks for the quick replies. I guess I'll go with 212 evo. It doesn't seem worth an extra $30 if I'm not going to be overclocking.
