I7 8700k (Waiting for release) can be cooled by hyper 212 or a h100i v2?

Hello, im bulding a gaming pc, and i waiting for Coffee Lake to release.
Im wondering if someone can give me opinions or recommendations about my new rig.

Case-Phanteks p400 Tempered Glass

CPU-i7 8700k (waiting for release)

GPU-Gtx 1060 (i know i could get an i5 and 1070 but this is my build and im not looking for another cpu-gpu combo)

SSD-Samsung evo 850 250gb

HDD-Seagate 2tb 64mb cache

PSU-EVGA 550w b3

MOBO-MSI Z370 A PRO (waiting for release)

RAM-CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 8gb ddr4 2400mhz (I know i should get 16gb but i will do it later in 2 or 3 months)

CPU Cooling- Corsair h100i v2 or hyper 212 evo?

My main issue is that i know theres a big difference on the price, but i need to know if the i7 8700k can be coold by a hyper 212 evo or should i get and h100i v2 (Im going to overclock just a little this year and the next years i will be overclocking it hard). Thanks and sorry for bad english.

  1. h100i, defenitly if you want to oc hard it will be so much better!!!!
  2. Do reconsider that you are risking compatibility issues if you are buying a single ram stick now and adding 1 more later. It's always better to buy ram in kits that are testet to work together in dual channel mode.

    Thanks for replying, but how can 1 ram stick make compatibility issues?

    on intel side no.
  5. 1 stick cannot but when adding the second stick it can.
  6. So, we are arguing for an old air cooler and an H100i? Not much difference. Close loop coolers aren't that great overall. They're widely used but they don't offer significant cooling over a good air cooler.

    Just because it is liquid cooling doesn't mean it's good liquid cooling.

    Also, OC is far more reliant on the person performing the OC than the cooling itself. Your knowledge of how to overclock is far more effective in temps than spending money you don't need to spend on a cooler.

    Sooo... what do you recommend?
    Notice that im going to be cooling an i7 8700k, it is a 3,7 with 4,7 boost. The thing with 7700k
    is that the people doesnt recommend to cool a 4,2-4,5 with air cool, specially if you are going to overclock
  8. I have a H100i GTX and its just not working as well as I would like.
    It works but I think a good fan cooler would be about the same. Shopping around for a better AIO or if I can mortgage the house a custom loop build. The 8700k gets pretty hot.
    Turn Turbo off and your fine though. Agree that when you overclock you can play around and get temps down to a decent level.
    Havent had much time to play around yet so discovering myself. But I do know I need a better Cooler. Something with a 360mm radiator.
