Hello, I am looking forward to upgrade the stock cooler of my 8120. I've read about a lot of high-end air coolers, but most of them are not compatible with my 8Gb (4Gbx2) of Corsair Vengeance memory.

So what air cooler would you suggest me? I'm planning on overclocking the most that I can without hitting 40°C on idle and 55~60 °C on full load.

The cooler you pick depends on the case, motherboard and the number of ram dimms you have in your dimm-slots. If you've got a moderately spacious mid-tower case with a standard ATX board, you shold be fine as long as you dont use the dimm-slot thats right next to the processor.

Since you have just 2 dimms, and will be placing them in the alternate slots further apart from the processor, You're all set for any basic 120mm width and 160mm tall cpu air cooler.

May i suggest the CM 212 Evo, its got One fan and is 120(l)x80(w)x159(h).

Yeah, I guess I may take the EVO, the price and performance looks great. BTW, what is the difference between the 212 Evo and the 212 plus?

The bases are different.


The 212 EVO has a better base, so I would grab that over the 212+.

But is there a lot of difference in performance? Because I can get the 212+ in Mexico, more expensive, but it would be covered by a warranty. But if there is a big difference I'm going to the US soon and I may take the EVO, even though I would not have a proper warranty.

You don't need a warranty on a heatsink.
