Thank you, but I already know that the Silver Arrow is better. I would just like to know if the Hyper 212+ would do the job or if I should spend the extra $50 to get the Silver Arrow.
I just bought a Hyper 212+ for $25 at my local Fry's here in Texas. That's cheaper than most places. Newegg raised their price on this model to $50. I don't understand that, but I think it must be a result of all the good reviews that the 2121+ got and newegg thought that they could just make some more money while the sun shined on them and this cooler. They seem to be in short supply at other stores and the prices mostly run from $30 to $40 other places, so the $25 at Fry's is a bargain. MicroCenter's have them for $30 if you can get them. Micro Center also has the i5 2500K for $180 which is a great price.
I read a lot of reviews of heat sinks and coolers before I bought the 212+ There are some coolers that are "better" for more high end gaming, but I don't do that. Save the $50 on the Silver Arrow and put it toward some more RAM.
