Hyper 212 Evo vs Intel Stock Cooler.

I've heard the 212 Evo only makes your CPU cooler by 1-4°. The difference seems minimal, is this true?

  1. The CM 212 Evo can lower temperatures to even 20 degrees. The stock Intel cooler is basically crap.

    Much more than 1-4C, and much quieter.
  3. Better thermal paste will drop it 1-3C. A better cooler like a evo will drop it 20C. Though it will depend on the cpu. A lower end one may only see 10C.

    a better thermal paste could drop temps as far as even 10degrees, sometimes even more.
  5. I'm going to get an Intel i7 4770k, I've heard it gets pretty hot easily.

    A Hyper 212 Evo will easily cool that bad boy. Also i'd recommend using a different thermal paste than what the cooler is deliverd with like: Noctua NT-H1, Arctic MX4, Indigo Xtreme, Phobya HeGrease or Prolimatech PK1.

    All of the above are amazing thermal pastes that will improve cooling significantly for just a few bucks.
  7. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/thermal-paste-performance-benchmark,3616-18.html 2c from the stock cooler master paste to any of those that you posted. This one is similar. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-January-2012/1468/5 Sure 10c from the best to the worst but the cooler master stuff is decent.
