I have a question about which heat sink to get. I am getting i5 2500K with ASUS P8P67 Deluxe and CM HAF 922 case. I m thinking of OC to ~4.5Ghz.. is the Cool Master Hyper 212 plus provide enough cooling for this OC.
Also, I was recommended to use Scythe SCMG-2100.. However this one looks huge and I m afraid it won't fit in my case? is this a valid concern?
Any of these coolers is particular better (cooling, mounting, etc) to my mobo, CPU, and case?
The 212+ is an awesome cooler. You can easily OC to 4.5GHz for everyday use with yours.
@ crewton - if your 2500K reaches 70'C @ 4.4GHz, there might be something amiss. My 212+ gives me awesome cooling on a Core 2 Quad, overclocked from 2.66GHz to 3.2GHz - it never exceeds 50'C, even under 100% load with any benchmarking tool. Best have it looked at
