hi people as the title states i am wondering which cooler i should use. noise is not a huge concern.
i have done all the research both should fit and stuff like that all that matters is cooling performance. :pt1cable: 

Best solution

the h55/h60 won't give much of an upgrade from the hyper 212 EVO, not to mention they will cost more. To get a real upgrade from the hyper 212 EVO, you need to go to liquid cooling that has a 240mm radiator.

I got a refurbished (I'm expecting some scoffing lol) h100 and it works great. It was only $50.

The Hyper 212 EVO is a much better value for money!

Or you can go for big air, like the Noctua NH-D14. Check space requirement though.

212 EVO out performs those at a much lower price easy decision.

Yes it will easily. Only get a more heavy duty cooler if you really want to push the overclocking. The EVO is awesome value for money and good for most overclocks. If your going to move the case around a lot, maybe think about the watercooling, as it is less stress on the mobo, but otherwise the EVO would be my choice. Note the EVO only gives 37mm ram clearance if the fan is on the front, so check that your ram isn't too high. Or just remove the heatsinks or move the fan up.
