I've been reading up on different CPU coolers and I found there are 2 types: Regular block heat sinks and heat pipe coolers. Regular heat sinks have the fan blowing down on the processor while the heat pipe version gets the heat from the pipes and blows it out the back of the case.
How much more efficient is one from the other?

I thought about that one too, but the Hyper 212+'s great height would put it right up against my side panel with 0.5mm clearance. The Hyper 212+ has a height of 158.5mm and my case recommends a cooler height of 159mm.
Understood on your choice and space limitations. Either way, you will be good to go. Have fun!
