I currently own a Intel 4670k processor, and plan to OC to 4.1gz. I have the Rosewill Aiolos Heatsink and 120mm fan. I also will have a case that will have 3 stock 120mm fans.(It is the cooler master CM Storm Scout 2, fans seem pretty decent.) And am buying 2 cooler master jetflo 120mm fans so i will have 5 120mm fans installed in the case and the 120mm fan on heatsink. Will i have any problems Overclocking to 4.1ghz. More importantly will i have to liquid cool? I don't plan on going over 4.1ghz. I also have the Z87 Sabertooth motherboard.


Thanks

for 4.1ghz you should be ok with a simple aftermarket air cooler but, 4.3GHz and above may need something like a closed loop water cooling kit such as the H80i/H100i or a high end air cooler such as the Noctua NH-D14.

If you are overclocking to 4.1, an air cooler should do just fine. However, if you go much above that, a liquid cooler will be definitely needed.

For air cooling, check out the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It has superior cooling power, for an awesome price.

For water cooling, check out the Corsair Hydro series. This series is one of the best performing, well-known group of liquid coolers out there.

If you mod your case, a Kraken x60, but the 212 should be good enough for you. Like the others stated, you'll need something better for higher OC. Noctua, H100i, or something like that. If you're willing to shell out a little more for cooling, a custom loop would be a nice choice. If you want to go to insane OC's though, you might want to check out peltiers.

Yeah like i said i don't plan on going much higher than 4.1ghz if i even do go any higher. But is the 212 that much better than the Aiolos Plus?

Yes, most definitely.

Well that fucking sucks. Lol they're basically the same price, but whatever i'll just buy the 212 and deal with it. I'll just keep the Aiolos as a backup or something.
