3570k + 212 evo

Right so the case is HAF912 in a space where 2" of air behind the case and all exposed for the front of case and about 1.5" space on each side. My room temp is 20 C in winter and 22-23 C in summer. Will the hyper 212 evo get to 4.4GHz at least with the 3570k? Thanks :) . Game sessions will range from 30min to 3.5hrs.

The HAF case is pretty big so you should be able to fit even bigger coolers. I hear the EVO are quite good coolers but the 3570K is idleing at some 35 C as I type this under corsair H50..What I'm saying is the CPU is running real hot and while the EVO might be sufficient, I'd look for some bigger, better alternative as I personally like to keep it cool.

The EVO will do it's job I'm sure thogh and if youre on tight budget than why not ...

Ill get 2500k instead then i guess cuz that runs cooler. and when i was saying those measurements i meant the air space around the case if u no what i mean.

Thanks again for your help :)

With a 212 Evo, you'll get to 4.4 on a 2500K quite easily. I'm at 4.5, not even really breaking a sweat with my 212 Evo in push/pull (high 50's to low 60's stress testing). I could go higher, I just don't NEED to, lol.

So i could get to like maybe even 4.6GHz with the Hyper 212 evo? :D

With a 2500K, if your room temps are decent and you don't need a lot of Vcore to do it, I'd say so.

My room temps are some 20 C atm. Also when I said the i5 3570k is idleing at 35 C I forgot to meantion that it's not even overclocked, as I just finished my build over the weekend. I suppose the thermal paste needs to cure a bit as well but it doesnt change the fact that the new ivy bridge are running considerably hotter than its predecessor- sandy bridge.

I prefer to opt for the latest HW possible but if overclocking is your thing than CPU's such as 2500K still pretty kick ass :)

I have a Hyper 212+, not the evo and a 3570K. At 4.5GHz I was reaching 84C after a couple of hours of stress testing. Probably best to go with the 2500K if you want to go for high overclocks.

I have the Hyper 212+ as well on a 2500k @ 4.6GHz. My temps sit around 70c when running Prime95 blend test for hours. Intel Burn Test 10 passes I dont even hit 70c.

Sorry for bumping this but how far will i get with an i7 2600k and a TX-3 cooler?
