Cold enough for ya?

Hi there I've been recenlty thinking of doing some major work on my pc.

I'm going to overclock my cpu an i5 3570k ivy bridge to 4.5 ghz.

I've had my eye on a cpu cooler called cooler master hyper evo 212. Its cheap and great quality apparently
Also I'm going to add another fan called coolermaster silent 120 mm.

My case is a thor v2 it has 1 120 mm exhaust fan and 1 210mm fan I think on the top of the case as an
Exhaust as well. There are two 120 mm intake fans one at the front and one on the bottom it also has
A very large 240mm intake fan on the side.
So I need to know will my cpu be cool enough it won't well over heat?

  1. What makes you think it wont be?

    Everything looks good here, move along.

    Every overclock is different but that cooler should easily enable 4.5GHz.
  2. Not cool enough for me, but as stated, the 212 will see you fine there

    Then what would you use? If it's liquid cooling count me out!

    I had a bad experience with them once and ever since don't trust those things!
    The piping it came with was badly stuck on and the whole thing soaked my cpu motherboard and gpu!

    closed loop liquid coolers cost.more and perform worse than good air coolers. the coolermaster is OK, especially for the price. I have a nice tower zalman that was 50, with 120mm scythe fans in push pull. works great, shoots right into the rear exhaust fan.

    FYI your case has 230mm fans on the side, top, and front, a 140mm exhaust, and a 140mm bottom intake. (I have one, love it)

    Yeah, my loop is pretty insane so thats what I meant by not cold enough for ME,
    I should've been clearer hehe,
    I'm sorry you had a bad experience with an allinone cooler,
    but we don't often recommend them here, we try to build your confidence to build a real loop and reap the benefits that way, because you can be better off with aircooling than those things
