CPU Cooler for 3570k/NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT

I'm a few weeks away from grabbing the following;

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Mobo

G.SKILL Ripjaws SEries 8GB (2x4GB) 1600 RAM

Intel Core i5 3570k

NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT

I've heard a few things about the NZXT case being difficult to fit a good CPU Cooler. Just looking for something under $50 that will cool the 3570k well enough. I don't really plan to extreme overclocking. Probably only to like 4.0 max.

This is my current choice for CPU Cooler.

  1. if yoiu want a cpu cooler around the 50$ mark i recommend

    Xigmatek Dark Knight
  2. I'm looking at that too, :lol: I am thinking about the coolmaster hyper evo 212
  3. the hyper evo 212+ is more or less the overall choice for cost to performance ratio cooler.(as well as its moderately sized so that it can take slightly more than low profile ram) and fits most cases.
  4. hey there!!! i have the same parts as you exept the mobo and the case but i use a hyper 212+ it is great and my 3570k can oc to 4.2 ghz and the max temperature i encoutered was 37C
