I am going to get an i5 3570k and intend to overclock it to no more than 4.5 GHz with an asus p877-v pro mobo. If I was going to get the hyper 212 evo I would replace the stock fan and put on two Coolermaster Excalibur fans; the noctua would cost me an additional £20. Both fit in the case im going to get; the NZXT 410 phantom. I have searched the internet for reviews and comparisons but everything compares VALUE for money and points towards the 212 evo. My question is; for an additional £20 would I see a significant performance increase?

Thanks.

The Hyper 212 is value for money. However, if you have money to spend, then you might as well get the Noctua. Trust me, it performs very similar to the Corsair H100. You won't be disappointed.

Im also wondering due to the sheer size of the noctua the airflow in the case may be a little more restricted, causing a higher case temp?

Only 100mhz difference between the 212 evo and NH-d14? Doesn't make sense, since the Noctura is over twice the price of the 212 evo, has two heat sinks, 8 pipes, vs six, and dual fans.
