Specs:
MSI Z77MA G45
i5 3570k
GTX 780Ti
16 Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600
Hx850 Psu
Rosewill Thor v2 Case

What is the best air cooling solution to overclock to atleast 4.1ghz at acceptable temperatures? Im too paranoid to go with water cooling right now. Also will a Cooler master Hyper 212 Evo fit in my case with my motherboard and gpu?

  1. Yes that cooler will fit with no issues. But it's not the best. The Noctua NH-D14 is the best. But if your Vengeance ram is not LP then the 212 is the better choice as it should not block any of the ram slots.
  2. I have a 890gxm-g65 msi board and my hyper 212 evo blocks one of the ram modules but luckily I have a low profile ram so it fits right in but if you have high profile rams one of your ram card might not fit in.
  3. The Noctua cooler is not in the same price range to compare them or?

    He ask which is best. So I gave a affordable versus the best.
  5. Well then I have another question, what is the best LP RAM to get? I want a reputable brand by the way.

    I have the Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP rem in my system and it has performed flawlessly! I have even OC'd it to 2300 MHz (stock 1600) and didn't see any problems.
