Coolmaster 212+ or Corsair A50
Sep 9, 2011, 9:45 PM
I am thinking about buying a heatsink and I don't know which one to choose.
There is a few deals on NCIX right now and I saw the following deals:
Coolmaster Hyper 212+ - 24.99$ -
Corsair A50 - 19.99$ -
Which one will give me the best performance?
My system is a i5 2500k, 8 GB RAM, P8Z68-V, Antec 620W gamer, and everything in a Antec 300 case. I do not overclock.
Which one should I buy? Should I keep the thermal paste that comes with it as well?

The hyper 212+ is the best option of those two. The TIM that comes with it is good for get low temps at idle and load.
