Solved 2500k 4.5Ghz, Hyper 212 + enough? Tags: Heatsinks Cooler Master Intel i5 Overclocking Last response: January 24, 2011 1:52 AM in Overclocking Share bpgram January 23, 2011 3:04:40 PM Hello Was planning to overclock my i5-2500k to around 4.5-4.6Ghz and was wondering if the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ cooler would be enough to do the job? If not, any suggestions? By the way, I am using GSKILL Ripjaws X CL7 2x2GB RAMS, so please suggest a cooler that may clear the RAM. Current build, Asus P8P67 Pro i5-2500k Palit GTX 570 sonic plat. Cooler Master HAF 922 case w/ window. Thanks tomshardware community!

Btw a 212+ and Ripjaws are compatible as far as clearances go. m 0 l bpgram January 23, 2011 3:33:47 PM Yeaps, a reason why i chose the Cooler Master. If anyone else has an idea on whether the 212+ would be enough for a 4.5-4.6Ghz over clock, please do advice! m 0 l Related resources Is a cm hyper 212+ enough for i5 2500k @ 4.5GHz - Forum I5 2500k Blue screen 4.5GHz @ 1.3v (Hyper 212 Evo) - Forum Is Hyper212+ good enough for 2500K OC? - Forum 3570k @ 4.5Ghz Hyper 212 - Forum Overclocking AMD Fx 8320 up to 4.5Ghz with Hyper 212 Evo - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Right below the CPU-Z screenshot he says he got that 4.4ghz clock speed with the stock low-profile cooler. That thing is tiny compared to the 212+, I think you have nothing to worry about. http://www.anandtech.com/show/4083/the-sandy-bridge-rev...

If you already own it, why not try it out and report your results in this thread for all to learn from? If you're considering buying it, and people are getting 4.4G results on the stock cooler, the CMH212+ will definitely out perform the stock cooler, so that's really a No_Brainer. m 0 l ghr180 January 23, 2011 5:22:10 PM On newegg TV the Asus Rep used the 212+ to push a 2600K to 5.2 GHz. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lajZi-JAFXA And http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vBN-cBPs98&annotation_i... So you should be fine. m 0 l bpgram January 24, 2011 1:42:14 AM Ok thanks all! @4ryan6 I'm considering buying it and once I get it, I will post my results!
