Which CPU Cooler for a Non Overclocked i5?
Hi everyone, I have an i5-4430 that I'm putting into a gaming pc. I know that I could use the stock cooler, but I'd like something quieter and cooler. It doesn't have to be anything crazy since I'm not overclocking. I know everyone recommends the Hyper 212 EVO, but I'm not sure how quiet it is.

212 EVO here, too. But I've never heard anyone complain about the loudness of the stock Intel cooler. It is dead silent in all the builds I've done with it. Maybe yours is defective.
The 212 EVO will be a bit overkill for a stock i5, but it will look bad and run quiet at low speed all the time.

my personal favorite fans are the nactua, but they be a bit expensive & only if you OC
