    The 212 is the king of CPU cooling VALUE. The H100i is a watercooler and will cool better but it is WAY more expensive. You might as well as get a really good air cooler for cheaper but still performs within margin. I suggest the NH-D14 like bigcyco1 said.
  10. Noctua NH-D14
  11. which, thermal paste is best for the buck ? Pk-1 ? arctic silver 5 ?
  12. The Noctua comes with great paste i would just use that
  13. I'm getting the hyper 212 evo, is the thermal paste it comes with reliable and good for an overclock to 4.0 ghz on a 3570k ?
