Hey,i am looking for a cooler for my i5 3570K,i plan to overclock to like 4.5 Ghz,My budget is mostly 50 USD,and if its not possible with such budget,then what Ghz should i be expected with a 50 USD heatsink?
If youve got a good motherboard and know how to overclock you can reach 4.5GHz even with a 30$ cooler.Still though it'd be running hot and noisy.
There are 3 coolers around that price that you should really consider.All of them are high-end to top-end air coolers.
The third cooler is the well known Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM.It's the smallest of all three.Its also the only cooler that actually fits your budget .Its pretty much does everything the Tuniq cooler does but a bit worse.It does have one upside though.Its more likely to fit in your case.
With ninja 3 at stock 3.3 Ghz my 1100T run at 19-20 celsium at idle, I haven't seen any low price watercooler to give such great result, the main issue with ninja 3 may be his height, it may not fit some cases so keep it in mind!
