How much does the CPU Cooler Hyper 212 Evo help?

My CPU: AMD FX 6300 (at stock speed which is 3.5GHz) with stock cooler

My Mobo: M5A97 LE R2.0

To get to the point, while playing World of Warcraft and watching a 720 P livestream my CPU averages 57 degrees Celsius.

If I upgrade to a Hyper 212 EVO cpu cooler about how much of a difference in temperature would I get or should expect? This is because I want to overclock to 4.4 GHz

  1. The 212 EVO is a budget cooler for mild overclocking.

    Your motherboard isn't built for overclocking.

    That's not my question. And your reasoning is false because an FX 6300 with my mobo is an extremely popular combo and as long as VRM heat sinks are bought for the mobo people have oc'ed up to 4.6.

    Forgot to mention, as a moderator from the CPU section you shouldn't be commenting on overclocking issues especially when providing misinformation.
  3. Still need help with this issue guys, thanks.
  4. Apparently no one knows? :(

    Far too many variables to guess.
    Your ambient temp, case, cable management, other fans, etc, etc, etc...

    It will probably be 'cooler'. How much? No one knows until you try it.

    Thank you, appreciate the help. I don't know what to say though about all those variables. They will stay exactly the same, nothing but a new cpu cooler changes in my pc. I assume it will be a lot because the stock cooler that my AMD FX 6300 brought was garbage. Extremely small, small fan. No cobber base OR copper heat pipes. Like I said I assume it will be by a decent 10 degrees difference, correct me if you think I'm wrong. thanks :)
  7. The hyper 212 is a great cooler, I have one on my SB 2500K and it runs at 4.8, have a nother on my IB 3570K and it runs 4.7 (also 24/7), with Haswell it's good through 4.4 24/7 (used one while waiting for the release of the CM GTS V8...they are great on the FX CPUs
  8. I have it and it keeps my overclocked 8320 at 31 degrees Celsius and my GTX 770 at 40 on level6. It's not really loud but you can hear it a little and some people even set it at level4 because it's pretty cool even at that level.

    Is it OC'ed? If not thats still very impressive. Yeah, I get the impression it will help me a TON because the stock 6300 heat sink has no copper base or copper heat pipes.

    It will be significantly better than the stock cooler.

    Only OC'd by 15% (to 8350 level) :) but ya stock fans suck I used one for 2 or 3 weeks and it killed my ears.
