I have an intel i7 4770k. I was playing borderlands earlier and the core temps were getting to the high 90s. I know I need to get higher rpm case fans, but I think I need a better heatsink/fan. I've been looking at the cooler master hyper 212 plus. It is seeming like my best option, but I was wondering if there'a anything better for around the same price.

I'd go with the Hyper 212 Evo if you can get it. It cools a bit better than the Hyper 212 Plus and costs about the same price.

Not water-cooled, Coolermaster S400 smart edition. Thats what I have, and it never goes above 120 fahrenheit

This. The Evo is a newer version of the Plus. Main difference is the base of the heatsink (no more filling in those giant grooves) and a different fan as well.

212 Plus




212 Evo (grooves are pretty much completely gone)
