I was hyped up about buying CNPS9900 MAX, but it seems like it won't be available in my Country for at least a month (I guess all the stores buy from one distributer). To top it all off, the price has jumped up by almost $20 which is unacceptable to me.
I plan to overclock my i5 2500K between 4.0 and 4.5 GHz. Will Hyper 212 EVO suffice? I can get it right now for $34. That sounds great compared to Zalman's $64 old price and $81 new price.
Should I go for it or is there a third, better option? I was thinking about Corsair A70, but it has RAM clearance problems on my MoBo with Corsair Vengeance (non low profile).
Thanks for help.

Performance wise, the EVO is better. I "had" the Zalman.
And yes, 2500k to 4.5Ghz the EVO will do just fine.
I bought EVO in the meantime.
Better at half the price, huh? That's pretty impressive.
I was under the impression that 9900 MAX has better overall performance (at least from most benchmarks I've seen), but EVO is the king of performance per dollar.
