There is a reason for the above admonition. Hyper 212 is a decent, but nonetheless value cooler. It is not a top end cooler and originally came out for the Sandy/Ivy specs

Look at how these TOP end coolers do with haswell to understand what is meant:

Theoretically yes. Of course this depends on other factors, such as how well it is seated, the thermal paste used and how applied, case airflow, etc etc etc. They all work together my friend

Best solution

I'd recommend Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

or the Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler for 4.5ghz or higher.
