BUDGET $50 for 3570k heatsink
Nov 16, 2012, 12:50 AM
I recently built myself a new computer with the 3570k as the cpu. I was a little upset after purchasing this chip because I didn't do any extensive research on the processor.
I found that a lot of people said the ivy bridge runs hotter than sandy. I wouldn't know this because I never owned a sandy bridge.
Well, according to Core Temp 1.0 RC4, I get around 27-31c when its between 0-5 load. When its at around 10-14% load, I get around 33-37c. While I am playing league of legends I get around 60c.
What would be the best cooler in that range and about how much would those coolers drop my temps?

There's nothing wrong with those temperatures.

Those temps are not too bad. You could get a cheap Cooler Master 212+ EVO cooler which would make a big difference.
