Coolmaster 212+ or Corsair A50 Tags: Heatsinks Corsair Overclocking Last response: September 10, 2011 1:46 AM in Overclocking Share jeffjeff666 September 9, 2011 9:45:50 PM Hi! 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$ - http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=41337&vpn=RR... Corsair A50 - 19.99$ - http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=53611&vpn=CA... 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? Thanks!

The TIM that comes with it is good for get low temps at idle and load.
