Im planning to OC the 2500k to 4.0~4.2Ghz and im wondering if i need the Hyper 212 Evo cooler or will a CM Hyper TX3 Evo do the job adequately well for the 2500k at those levels of OC? As the difference in price of the 2 is around USD$16 in my country. ($51 vs $35)
Appreciate any inputs and suggestions for improvement for my setup
Heatsink Dimensions 120 x 80 x 159 mm
But above it show the fan dimensions of 120 x 120 x 25 mm
So it's suggesting that the width is more than both the length and height...which doesn't make sense. I wish they'd use proper damn units.
That case looks like a normal-width case, though, and this coolder isn't really any bigger than normal ones. I'm 99% sure it would fit.
Hyper 212 EVO is definitely your best bet for that price range. I like the Havik 120 by NZXT and at only 55 bucks it's not a bad deal either. For your OC range I would say both of these would be awesome choices. If you wanted to go a bit higher in price you can get the Noctua HD-D14 for about $85 or a step up to liquid cooling.. the corsair h100 for about $110
BTW I can't WAIT for D3 to come out! I even started playing D2 again just to scratch my itch!
