what overclocks can i achieve with an h100 or a hyper 212?
Also what will the temps be?

CPU: i7 2600k

More about : hyper 212 h100

your cpu will run atleast 15 degrees cooler. you will be limited to about 4.5 with the 212+ and to about 4.8-4.9 with the h100.

get the h100 or a noctua nh-d14. they perform about the same and are actually good compared to the hyper 212+

Those aren't even in the same price range. If you want water cooling, go custom! It will be a little bit more expensive but will outperform the H100 EASILY!

That's a horrible comparison... The better comparison is the H100 and NH-D14 as cbrunnem mentioned. At least they're closer in price and performance.

Regardless, I agree with muffin here. If you want to go water, go all the way with custom. No need to fool around with closed loop stuff.

And temps depend on a lot of things (ambient temp, voltage, etc.), so we can't give you an exact answer on that, just our own experience (mine being that I have core temps from 59-63C in Prime 95 @ 4.5 on my 2500K with a 212 Evo in push/pull). But I've seen other people with lower AND higher temps, so there's no set range for each cooler.

well i do agree it's unfair to compare the two, the h100 will obviously be better but i want to see if the h100 will be overkill for me. I also don't have the time or money to go custom. Basicly I want to see where each coolers hit there limits.

1.277V at 100% load and 1.328V idle with SpeedStep disabled.

What clock speed were you aiming for?

4.5ghz is about max on the 212 EVO, I've got one and I'm at 4.5ghz with 1.31V.

H100 isn't going to get you much higher than a 212+. Just because it says 'liquid cooling' on the box, doesn't mean it's very good at it.

H100 is nice if you are space constrained. I have a 212+ and I cannot fit a DIMM into my 6th ram slot since the thing is huge

212+ is $30
h100 is $115
WTF?
at least compare things of same price range.
still,i vote for 212+ for it's better price to performance ratio.

Pretty much something like this:


They put a girl on a POS car, in relation they try to simulate real watercooling (girl) and put it in a closed loop.

If you don't want to spend much then go with the 212 and aim for 4.5 GHz. If money isn't an issue and you want higher clocks then pick the H100 or custom.

all i really want to know are your guys: max temps, voltage and clock speed

also i cant really go for a bigger heat sink i have corsair vengeance ram and the hyper 212 1-2 cm from touching my ram (based on others builds and experience with the 212 evo/plus)

ammuffin why do you use folding instead of prime like everyone else. do it run a lot cooler or something?

I fold for the TH folding team! It gets me points and as well can check for overclock stability :)

BOINC (which runs SETI@Home, MilkyWay@Home, etc) are very similar for loading, but Intel Burn Test works better than anything I've found, including Prime. It's brutal for stability and load testing...I haven't found anything that loads a CPU harder.

i looked into that and downloaded it but when it asks for team number for toms you just put in 40051 right. also task manager shows 100% usage but the process only shows 13%? is that normal.

is there anything else i need to know.
