Hi all, I am in the process of choosing a air cooler for my i5-3570k that I would like to overclock to 4.5ghz (lets say hypothetically I can reach 4.5ghz with my chip). I have my eye on the Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev.A (with 140mm fan) or a Thermalright TRUE Spirit (with 120mm fan). I know the CM 212 Evo is highly recommended but I can't get that here in New Zealand (and I'm paying an absurdly high price for these coolers aswell :(  )

Thanks in advance :D 

Oh and the Macho is $100 and the TRUE Spirit is $70 (I said it was absurd, did I not?)

Good to know it's actually worth it to spend money on :) 


Thanks guys, so should I go with the cheaper one (TRUE Spirit) or the more expensive one (Macho)?

Just an FYI, I am running my 3570k at 4.5ghz @1.32v. Never hits more than 49 degrees with the GPU and CPU at full load.

dual pumps -> RAM -> CPU -> 140mm -> GTX690 -> 360mm -> Res

Thats the loop.
