asus p8p67 pro is much better in overclocking and in sli/cf.and your cooler good but hyper 212+ is much better.

i like the idea of the little 50mm fan at the bottom of the cooler thats supposed to cool the surrounding part etc.

I'd really do the move to the Hyper 212+, the freezer 13 isn't that good and is a little basic.

That fan will not blow air to your RAM and chipset
November 4, 2011 4:40:48 PM

why?their next to it,its horisontal so it will dissipate the air around the cpu base area..

what do you think that it will keep your ram and chipset cold?

http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=260... know,theres so many on the market and they all hype their own products.its just that i read an article absout the chipset on the asus next to the socket getting hot+ when oc'd that i think its worth a try...i might be wrong,,i'm pretty new to this type of thing.

reading the article i would say yes it can blow air to other components
November 4, 2011 5:39:30 PM

thats what i'm thinking,when i do the build next weekend i'll run some stress tests,if the cpu gets to hot i'll wire another 120mm fan on the opposite side to increase the overall cfm..lets hope.....

1- The fan is horizontal, the air don't blow in the same way than the fan is installed, so, if the fan is horizontal the air goes from top to bottom.
2- The chipset are far away from there and the RAM runs fine without additional cooling.
