HSF recommendations Tags: Overclocking Last response: December 28, 2009 1:26 PM in Overclocking Share woozyM December 23, 2009 6:26:32 PM Hey all, I'd like some suggestions on a HSF for the following system: COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail 69.99 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... ASUS P7P55D EVO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail 219.99 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80605I5750 - Retail 219.99 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ - Retail 100.99 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... I'd like to be able to run 3.6 to 3.8ghz 24/7 and hopefully boost to 4.2-4.4ghz for gaming. I've heard lots about the hyper 212+, however it's sold out so anyone knows an equally good substitute? Is it possible to reach my OC goals w/out cpu lapping? Thanks guys and happy holidays!

Only difference is the finish and you can't see it much. BTW, lapping the Prolimatech would be a bad thing. Invalidates warranty and decreases performance. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer jsc a c 197 K Overclocking December 28, 2009 1:26:54 PM The only valid reason to lap an HSF is if you know for certain that the base of the heatsink is not flat. Otherwise, it serves no useful purpose. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
