Solved I5-2500K Temps and Cooler choice Tags: Heatsinks Cooler Master Cooling Intel i5 Overclocking Last response: November 11, 2011 2:45 AM in Overclocking Share marshcorps November 10, 2011 10:30:12 AM Hi, At the moment I am running the stock cooler, but after a couple hours of gaming my temps are reaching 70C. I want to get a proper cooler, but my choices are limited: Coolermaster Hyper 612S Coolermaster V6 I heard that the 1156 coolers fit on the 1155 boards, is that true? If so I could also get: Deepcool Gamer Storm Zalman CNPS9900 I am not OCing at the moment, but figure I will if I can keep my temps down. Thanks for the assistance.

The site I was looking at is "www.prophecy.co.za", I am in South Africa. I have had good service from them in the past as well.

Best solution blade061188 a b K Overclocking November 10, 2011 12:14:14 PM Sure. If you are looking for a great cooler without spending too much, the cooler master 212 series is great. The latest model is the 212 EVO (Compatible with LGA1155) it does a great job and doesn't break the bank. http://www.prophecy.co.za/coolermaster-hyper-cooler-int... I personally have the 212+ (the older model) and I have my 2500k at 4.5Ghz and my highest temp in Prime95 is around 70C marshcorps November 11, 2011 2:44:25 AM Best answer selected by marshcorps. marshcorps November 11, 2011 2:45:15 AM Hi Blade, Thanks a mil. I will look at getting an EVO at the end of the month. I saw people posting about the 212+, but I wasn't too sure about the EVO version of it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
