As the tile says, I'm wondering which of these coolers will perform best with an overclocked i5 3570k. I will be looking to hopefully get an overclock in the 4.0-4.5 range.

Antec Kuhler H2O 620 ($57)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO ($35)

Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM ($50)

I would also like to know if you can recommend any other coolers in the same price range.

Also can anyone add if it is worth it to buy a better thermal grease such as Arctic Silver 5?

Any help is appreciated :)

yes IMO it is totally worth it to throw down for a big tube of AS5....that way you can replace all your paste with it def lowers temps....of all the coolers in the world I would recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO....it performs great and is quiet and costs the least....it will perform the best out of the three coolers there and is the cheapest...you will def be able to hit the speeds you want with that cooler

One more thing, can you recommend good fans for the hyper 212 evo in push pull? I read somewhere that it is highly recommended that the fans are the same.

well it depends on what you are going for pure performance or do you want it quiet? also do you like LED's if so what color? if blue LED's are your thing these are some good fans that can blow a lot of air but can also be turned down when needed

For fans I would prefer ones without an led and that are a good balance of performance and low noise levels.

Personally I love the fans that Corsair makes now. They aren't the quietest in the world, but they do their job extremely well, and have high static pressure, which is a very good thing for fans blowing through heatsinks.

I've got the Hyper 212+, with a single of those Corsair fans. My i5-3750K is at 4.4GHz, 1.18v, and doesn't ever break 60, even when gaming.

Very nice temps, any chance you could be more specific on which fans those are?
