Best Heatsink for Cooling and Value Tags: Heatsinks Cooling Overclocking Product Last response: December 10, 2011 5:03 PM in Overclocking Share Justinieon December 9, 2011 1:50:59 PM I am getting an i5 2500k system built and i was planing to OC to about 4ghz I've Heard that the Cooler Master hyper 212 is great at cooling and light on the wallet. (I've heard as low as 18-20℃) I've also got a friend who swears by zalman. Noise is not a factor for me. I use a Headset to game so its canceled out and I have a room dedicated to the pc. I've had some systems that sound like jets So What do you consider to be the better of the market? EDIT: I guess it could help to mention the system will be in an Antec 300 Illusion Case More about : heatsink cooling steadywaters a b K Overclocking December 10, 2011 8:01:01 AM My vote goes to the CM Hyper 212 EVO.
