    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+
    $34.99

    The Xigmatek Aegir is $59.99 on Newegg.
    The Akasa Venom Voodoo is $54.99 on performancepc.com.

    So the less expensive choice would be the Cooler Master and it will cool the 3570k just fine. The only thing with the Ivy Bridge cpus is that when you start adding voltage the cpu starts giving off heat and there is a point where the heat becomes too much for any air cooler. Unlike Sandy Bridge where you can go quite high with the overclock and still use an air cooler , Ivy Bridge can't go as high.

    But the thing is I'm situated in the UK so they're all the same prices. So should I just go with the Xigmatek Aegir?
  3. The Cooler Master cooler has been shown to be a very efficient cooler and hugely popular. Are you refering to the 212 Evo model in your selections? If you are then that particular model has direct heat pipe contact with the cpu so it makes for an efficient heat transfer.
    If you like the Xigmatek then choose that one I'm sure it will do a good job of cooling.
  4. While all three can have two fans the Akasa Venem Voodoo is the only one that comes with two fans and it looks pretty good to me.

    Yeah but it just doesn't fit my colour scheme of blue and black so I decided to go with the Xigmatek as it has the best reviews, just a few degrees higher than the NH-D14 with 2 fans :D.
  7. You can always add a second fan if you need to/
