Well, i'm gaming like 80% of the time, my pc is on from like 7:00 am to 10:00 pm when i'm on vacation, and from 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm when i'm not. Almost always gaming.
Also, those 2 coolers i mentioned are available in my country, unfortunately the hyper 212 EVO version is not, only the 212+, which i hadn't thought about. Anyway, 1 question: is there any noticeable increase in cpu temps if you don't fill the gaps between the pipes and the heatsink on the 212+? i'll be using Artic mx-4 thermal paste btw.
