Is it worth it
Jun 11, 2010, 1:01 AM
I am looking to do some minor overclocking with the Intel I5-750 just purely for gaming purposes.
This is the heatsink I have first had recommended to me.
cheap at 20 dollars, but worried about the bottom not being flush x.x
Then I was looking around and found this beast and was amazed it won't cover up any slots, and I am getting a larger mid tower,
Then lastly I found one kind of like the first but has a flush bottom and is only 10 dollars more then the first.
Wondering since I am probably just going to be doing minor, nothing over 3.6ghz, what should I do?

Any of the top ohhh, 25 and your in good shape:
Of those your cheapest would be the 212+ at about $25 now.
