    I not had any experience with the dark rock but the evo is a fantastic cooler, i5 2500k oc to 4.5GHz and never goes above 69c all cores on prime95 when i had the evo. Thats not bad for a budget cooler.

    Thanks I will get the cooler master hyper 212 evo then. I heard better reviews from that cpu cooler anyway but I just wanted to make sure. Also will i need to buy thermal paste or does the cool master 212 evo come with good thermal paste already? the thermal paste i had in mind of getting is this- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Arctic-Silver-Artic-Thermo-Syringe/dp/B000OGX5AM/ref=cm_lmf_tit_5_rdssss0#productDetails i am not sure if this thermal paste is any good though if not do you know any other good thermal pastes.
  3. it comes with a thermal paste
  4. Dark Rock 2 is a great cooler for overclocking.The 212 is a budget cooler for mild overclocks.
