  1. Definitely yes. It can handle the FX-8350's overclocked with ease, and those things produce far more heat! I would recommend you reuse it for your i7. It may even be quieter, too! Be sure to lay down some new arctic silver to get the best heat transfer possible.
  2. Why are you buying a k model if you're not going to overclock? Save $10 and buy a 4770 or buy the new one, I think it's 4771.

    That is wrong, the 4770 produces way more heat when overclocked than the 8350. If you plan on overclocking the 4770 I would suggest the Noctua NH-D14 or at least a Corsair H100. The new Silverstone TD03 is a very good option as well. If you don't plan on overclocking, then the 212 should be able to handle its heat with ease, although I don't know why you would be buying a "K" labeled processor...

    I think you misunderstand my post and OP's. An overclocked 8350 produces more heat than a stock i7, which is what the OP wants (see OP). If a CM 212 is shown to work with the hotter processor, then it can work with the cooler processor.
  5. Yes, it will handle it. People are using them on 6 core 3930k's.
