3570k stock cooler vs aftermarket cooler

My current temps during idle are around 30c.

When i play video games they jump up to around 59c.

When I am multitasking in windows(multiple browsers open) I get around 44c.

All of those temps are from a stock cooler at stock settings.

I am wondering if there would be a drop in temps during gaming if I bought a 212+/evo or the H60/50/55.

    yeah they will, i'm also using the stock one and temps are same. get the evo, water cooling is noisy and the evo is better than those when it comes to temps
  2. An upgrade would absolutely drop the temps. If you're not planning on OCing, save your money for something beneficial unless you're going for asthetics.

    You could even do some light OCing with the stock HSF.

    He can do light OCIng but, its minimal.
  4. If going with a closed loop i'd go for a thermaltake water 2.0 pro, temps as good as the h100 and less noise.
    Or with a Noctua NH-D14 for air.
