HEllo there :) I'm interested in overclocking and so need an aftermarket Heatsink for my CPU - an AMD A8-5600k 3.6Ghz Quad core - was looking at the Arctic Cooling A30, The Freezers Xtreme Rev2 and The Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212 - have no idea which is better and which will fit in my Aerocool Strike One which has 158mm clearance for the new heatsink - Please Help!!! - Any advice or suggestions for any other heatsinks would be appreciated :)

The Hyper 212 Evo should fit, it's a really strong cooler for the price. You could go for liquid cooling like a refurbished Corsair H60 for about the same price, too.

The ARCTIC Freezer Xtreme Rev. 2 will fit, it's 130 x 100 x 131 mm. Go for it.

I thought it was 149 for some reason. The Arctic Freezer will work.

Hyper 212 evo will fit too. It needs 158 mm and if it needs 159 that 1 mm will nog matter..
