This is the list ,


I require no more than 4,5 Ghz (keepin it real)

My plan is to only adjust my vcore slightly perhaps even >1.300
And my multiplyer up
And my BCLK just to make a nice round figure (no 4,399:p )

My price range is 8euro's to 80euro's

I'm interested in easy to place 4pin cooling (water or air) i rather have air because im reading good things about high end aircoolers
i dont care about noise,

i dont care about coolers that are not listen in this store.

Thank you very much .

PS: overclocking advice is welcome also

Well, for coolers just to get ya to 4.5Ghz, a Hyper 212+ or evo will do just fine. With a budget like that, I would bump it up to something like a Corsair H Series or a Frio by Thermaltake.

The Frio is a good bit better, but the Hyper 212 should do the trick. It really depends on if you have the money.


hmm ok , my neighbour has a V8 Master cooler,
he claims it to be the bomb..

better than the frio ?

Um, the V8 is NOTHING compared to the Frio. The V8 was considered to be a fail by many people. Not to mention, it is REALLY heavy and may cause damage if not mounted properly.

+1 for Hyper 212. Best value out there. I'm overclocked to 4.5 and have stellar temps. Might hit low 60s BRIEFLY when I run Intel Burn Test. With normal use it stays in the 30s during heavy gaming. For $30 you can't go wrong. I'm running one push fan on it.

what do u meen running one push fan?
i'm not fermilliar with the term,

do u need to buy a fan loose from it ? or do get the fan with the heatsink?

lol its the same guy who i asked today how HE overclocked his 2500k and has the same mobo ,

he kept telling me something about his v8 being at 30 degrees when stressed with a burn in test,
and how he only upped his multiplyer and got 4,5 whilst leaving the vcore on auto ?

and all kinds of crazy *** i tried to tell him that i dont think it works like that but he seemed so confident i just shut up :p 

the frio will be it then

The FrioOCK is better, but also has a 3 pin.

if i put the 3way pin in my mobo , wich does not support voltage controls for it only for the pwm

does the frio have a nob ? or switch like the scythe does ?

or can i just plug it in the 3pin connector on my mobo and hope it will go full power.

getting 3pin to madox 4pin power adaptor is hard in holland, aspecialy for one who does not own a credit card.

i could just wack off the top pull out the strings and manually add it to my PSU but i dont want to damage expensive equipment.

Just get a hyper 212+, well the evo that I have has a 4pin for the fan and I can control it through asrock's software.

Hmm looks nice , wich one is more powerfull

the one you picked? or this one http://www.alternate.nl/html/product/CPUs_Koelers/Therm...


My suggestion was based on what you asked advice on, a 4.5ghz overclock (keeping it real) and 4 pin connection.

An additional reason for recommending the Cooler Master EVO is the mounting bracket system is one of the best thought out mounting systems out there, at this time I don't have any actual experience with the Frio even though I have one on my shelf to test, but I know the Cooler Master will give you good 4500mhz results.

Now if you want to shoot for the moon and possibly go past 4500mhz air cooling then get the Noctua NH-D14.

Really, if you want a 4-pin, just get a 212 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That is on Newegg, I don't know if you can find it where you are at though.
