Thanks to some gift cards, I will be purchasing a nicer after market cpu cooler. I will be using an 8320 and plan on overclocking to 4.5ghz(+/- depending on heat levels of course).

50$ for amazon, and don't really have anything else to buy at all, and I can add 20 bucks if I need to. Don't particularly see a need for anything much higher end then those I listed, but if you have a STRONG suggestion for something else, I'm all ears.

Thanks in advance.

Kind of on a time crunch, if I don't order tonight, I have to wait a solid week, whereas I can get it tuesday if I order now.

not a fan of water cooling as leakage can occur and really depends were radiator sits in your case some cases have it right at the back of the casing which to me is a bad idea as it blocks out the exaust.

i would suggest 612 or the 812

the 612 is probly better deal due to it only loses 2 heatpipes

and is round 50 on amazon

get a second fan preferably with better cfm and faster for pulling

get some mx4 paste though from my experiance the paste that comes with coolermaster is absolute crap. it dropped in my experiance temps down by 5c on load not in idle though and seems to keep the temp from rising any higher.

This is from my experiance though so your results may differ due to occing and diffrent case

you should also look into fans for the case to improve airflow if you havent already. 4.5ghz is a tall order and your board may not be able to take it since i dont know your board i cant comment on that though

Interesting. I have some artic silver 5 thermal paste still, I was just planning on using that. 4.5ghz was just an arbitrary goal provided temps and voltages, but my setup should be able to handle it fine. I made a custom case, has tons of airflow, just need the final part.

I was impatient so I went with the 212 evo because my prime membership runs out tomorrow. The 612 and 212 seem to post similar numbers though, I don't think I can go wrong with any of those coolers honestly.

i see evo is a good cooler but i myself have tried using it with a older 8 core used stock paste i couldnt get the thing stable changed to aftermarket paste and it sat comfortably 30c-32c and 45 while not occed course your temps may differ largely i had 3 sickleflow case fans lol and you may have more so your temps may be better however i do have 1 solid advise were temps are usually there worst in a case is near the bottom i found sticking a pci exaust works wonders

also the fixing that holds it in place is a bit fiddly to get to lined up i also found apply a lil thermal paste between were the pipes meet helps keep temps stable least for me it did unsure what arctic silver 5 will show i do know it needs curing time of 200 hours for max effect

but like i said get another fan slightly faster or hell i find getting similar fan to the rear fan gives you a wind tunnel effect

just make sure the fan thats pulling the air towards a vent is faster then the 1 pushing or youll just trap hot air in the heatsink
