Hi Experts, lookin to take my new i5 to about 4.2Ghz. Nothing too dramatic as its my first time.
I have a Bitfinex Colossuss case and so the heatsink wont be seen at all and noise wont really be an issue either. Would I be better off going with a small water cooling unit like a H60 or just slap a Hyper 212 Evo on that bad boy?
How much performance would I need for this OC anyway? Any ideas? Moneys no big deal, but if I dont need a beast, why pay for it, right?
ps just realised I have Corsair Vengeance ram. WIl that be too big for the Hyper?
going to 4.2 shouldnt be an issue with the hyper212, i have mine at 4.5 with a 212+ and it works great. it DOES cover the first ram slot on my mobo, i think i could get low profile in there but not my g.skill ripjaws. depends on your board and whether you have 2 or 4 sticks of ram, i just put mine in slots 2 and 4
