Solved Which Cooler for OCing 2500k in Fractal Design Core 1000 Tags: Heatsinks Core Cooling Cases Overclocking Last response: April 2, 2012 8:16 AM in Overclocking Share catalog March 31, 2012 5:25:14 AM I plan on OCing a i5-2500k (ASRock Z68 PRO3-M w/low profile Samsung memory) inside a Core 1000. The case supports CPU coolers with height of 135mm. I was originally going to use a Hyper 212, but realized it won't fit in the case. Any recommendations for an alternative cooler?

Best solution Kamab March 31, 2012 5:50:16 AM Could go with the 92mm zalman fan/hsu or the corsair h60 water cooler. Both provide very good cooling to an OC i5-2500k Related resources Water cooling system on Fractal Design Core 1000 and PSU satisfiabilit - Forum Fractal R3 vs Corsair 550D vs Antec P280 - Forum Fractal Design Newton R2 1000 w PSU - Forum Cooling for Fractal Design Define Mini - Forum Fractal design define R3 Vs cooler Master silencio 550 - Forum Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer catalog March 31, 2012 6:33:50 AM Sorry, I should have stated my budget in op. I'm looking to spend under $50 unless there is a really good reason to go above it.
