  1. Best answer
    Out of these two coolers i would go for the 412slim. It performs a bit better than the 212 evo but is also larger so make sure that your case has enough room for it to fit.If you are going to overclock the cpu a lot then i would recommend getting a better cooler but that depends on your budget and availability in your area.

    Hey again. My case is gonna be Corsair 650D, and I will also buy R9 290X crossfire if the card get's so good as people think it will be :). But will it fit in a Corsair 650D or do I need a ultra tower like 900D xD? The motherboard I will use is MSI z87-g45
  3. No worries it will fit the Corsair Obsidian Series 650D.

    How is this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106161

    I found it on the site I'am gonna buy the CPU cooler on and it was even cheaper then 212 evo and 412 slim. Should I take instead?
  5. No that one is not as good as the 212 evo and 412 slim.
  6. I would go with the EVO (has better performance).

    On some benchmarks I found it's not... Can you send me a link I can read it?
  8. I don't have solid proof, but i've seen both in action (2 of my friends one bought each) and the EVO out performed the SLIM.

    Why are you necroposting in a 2 year old thread to ask that?

    Anyway, I doubt either the 212 evo or the 412 slim will fit in a 100r, as the case specs say it only has 150mm clearance for cpu coolers, and those two are 159mm and 160mm tall respectively. If it's available where you are, you could consider the Cryorig H7, which is 145mm tall. Also, if I'm not mistaken, it's newer than the prior post in this thread (as far as I can tell, it came out around January 2015).
