I just set up my computer two weeks ago and i want to overclock my CPU in the future. The thing is at that time i didn't have money to spare on a cooler too so i am now running the cpu on the stock cooler. It's not suck a big deal since it doesn't get any hotter than 52 degrees in games (meaning real games not mmorpgs or anything) but the thing is i want to oc it to 4 Ghz or MAX 4.3 Ghz..
Now here's the deal I've recently wanted to buy a water cooler because i heard that it cools very good but just the IDEA of water near the components scares me a bit. I'm not a rich man and my computer with taxes was 1000$ (ofc you will see that the prices of the components have much lower prices but i pay 24% OF THE TOTAL PRICE TO THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE OF THE TAXES so I paid 124% of what i wanted meaning 1000$ ).
I would prefer an air cooling cooler with heatpipes and i don't care of the price (i will buy it in the future) I just want it to be compatible with my case (I don't have a lot of room left ).
I overclocked my 6100 to 4.6 at 1.478V and am running hyper 212. My idle cpu temp is 32C. My bios tells me its around 36C for my cpu. So overall pretty cool. When I play crisis 2 or Black Ops 2 my cpu went from 32C to 45C. Not bad. When I run prime ( the most heat extensive one I cant remember) my cpu went as high as 62C. Which is not bad considering prime95 stresses your cpu quite abit. Hyper 212 is very good for air cooling and should fit your case. Since you are doing it to 4.3 ghz this cooler should be more then enough-they go for $34-$36 (Canadian money so prob 35-37 usd not sure but cheap nonetheless
I use a deepcool mc3002gx on my fx 8350 and 1100t , when overclocked they never get over 53c 8350 4,3 1100t 3.9 , not big OC but they run cool . the cooler is a bit smaller than the 212 with a low rpm 120mm fan so it runs quiet , and 18.00 .
