I'm putting together a new rig for myself with the following specs: Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 mb, 500Gb hd, GTX460 GPU,4Gb Corsair Ram, 600W PSU, Phenom x2 555BE (hopefully oc to get all 4 cores) and i'm looking for a good cooler. The CM Hyper 212+ looks decent and a good price to go with it.
Two questions: 1 - Will this go into my rig, 2: Is it worth buying this cooler. If not can any one recommend another one for round about the same price.
I have a CM Hyper 212+ on my unlocked 740BE and it keeps it so cool I've forgotten the temps it's been so long since I last bothered to check.
If you're buying from Newegg though, they recently jacked the price to $35. The 120mm Xigmatek Gaia is similar, and is $30. I'll probably get that one for my next build.
