CM V6-GT or CM V8 or CM Hyper 212 Evo?

Hi Guys, I will Make My First Custom Gaming Rig at the End of this Month with 3rd Gen Intel Core i5 3570k CPU(I Heard About It's Overheating Issue). So I am a Bit Confused about CPU Cooler, Suggest Me Which One should I Go with, About Myself I am Leaning Towards "CM V6-GT". Now You Guys can Help Me to Choose the Best CPU Cooler from the Following. :)

1- CM V6-GT
2- CM V8
3- CM Hyper 212 Evo

Which One is Better in Performance (Not in Price), Your Help will be Appreciated ! :D

  1. 212+ or 212 EVO
  2. Why are you only worried about performance? If price isn't an issue, you could get one of these: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6233/ex-vap-15/Cooler_Express_2011_Super_Single_Evaporator_CPU_Cooling_Unit_-_All_Sockets_478_754_775_1155_1156_1366_939_940_AM2_Xeon_CE-48-S-1C.html?tl=g1c195&id=vraNfvBd

    My point is that you do have to consider price. There are coolers far better than those you've listed. Technically, the best of your three is the V8, but the 212 EVO is a better value and probably the one you should get. If you really want a crazy cooler, you could get a $90 Thermalright Archon, but there's no reason to do that.

    Dunno Why I always Write Capitalized Letter, It's My Habit Maybe.. :)
  5. I don't want Such an Epic CPU Cooler as it's Expensive worth than the CPU I Mentioned Above.. :D
  6. That's why you should get the EVO. It's the best value here.

    CM V6GT is Good, Isn't it Better than CM Hyper 212 Evo? :o
    As the CM V6GT has 2x Fans (120 x 120 x 25 mm) of 2200 R.P.M with 6 Copper Base Heat Pipes while the CM Hyper 212 EVO has 1x Fan (120 x 120 x 25 mm) of 2000 R.P.M with 4 Aluminum Direct Contact Heap Pipes.
    I am still Confused and Unable to Decide between these Two..
  8. i won't suggest V8,for similar price,hyper 612 pwm is a great cooler-
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103106&Tpk=612%20pwm
    high performance cooler with a fairly quiet fan with ability to add another fan for push/pull configuration.

    Heat pipe numbers and fans don't matter. Only actual temperature testing matters. Here we see that the EVO's actually cooler than the V8 when both are at high fan speeds, but not as good when both are on low: http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2655&page=4

    how about we use a heatsink with a single heatpipe and no fan??? a potato will cool better than that!
    more heat pipes(not in all cases but in most of the cases)means better heat dissipation,2 fans mean better cooling because of high air flow.to back this statement,here's a little story.hyper 212+ and hyper TX3 are pretty similar but guess what!TX3 has less heat pipes and smaller fan-
    hyper 212+ with a larger fan,more heatpipes and bigger cooling chamber-

    and it is better than TX3 in terms of cooling-
    http://www.guru3d.com/article/cooler-master-hyper-212-plus-review/7
    moral of the story-A bigger heatsink with a bigger or 2 fans and more heatpipes is most like to perform better than a smaller heatsink.
    no offence meant,just my opinion about your post ;)
  12. I'm not saying that they truly have no effect, because they're obviously the things that do the actual cooling in a cooler, just that you can't compare by them.
  13. The CM V6 GT has great performance but the right push fan blocks my first ram slot, for this I would say "do not" get this cooler. This problem has been a thorn in my side.
  14. Dude I have the V6-GT and I overclock my 2500k pretty high and I live in a pretty hot place over here in SA so the the ambient temps are pretty high also and no issues...

    People are going on about the 212 /EVO too much, it does`nt even look good...
