am planing to do some overclock on my i5 2500k and am at lost on which Fan should i get, am running on a limited budget under 50$, i was thinking of getting Cooler Master V6 but its currently unavailable so my choices are :
- Cooler master hyper t4.
- Cooler master hyper t3.
- Cooler master hyper 103.
- Cooler master Vortex plus.
- Cooler master hyper 212 evo.
- Cooler master hyper TX3 evo.
- Cooler master Geminii M4.
- Cooler master hyper 212X.

hyper 212 evo is best bang for buck :)

I would exclude those with a smaller 90mm fan. 92mm fans are less effective and get noisy under load.
The hyper212 evo with a 120mm fan is a good choice.

The 212 EVO and 212 X are basically the same just the X VERSION is the latest generation.

The others aren't worth consideration.
