    as far as budget coolers go, the cooler master 212+ tends to get the most recommendation and for good reason, its cheap and works great. costs about $25 on amazon.


    So the V6 is about how many times faster than the hyper 212?
  2. The V6 is like $69 on Newegg, you can get a Noctua for less than that -

    If you want to spend less though the CM212+^.

    So this CPU cooler is good enough if i dun plan to overclock or just overclock alittle?
  4. The 212+ will do fine but the Noctua is better and quieter but more expensive.

    Lastly if a CPU cooler is Faster at cooler CPUs down.Will it need more power? Or just a little.
  6. Best answer
    On these coolers the only part that draws power is the fans so 2 fans will draw more power than 1.

    These fans don't need a great deal of power to run, its nothing to worry about. :D

    I have an i7 920 with a CM V8 attached to it. Hands down the best air cooler I've used. If you're planning on doing serious overclocking, go with this. I got my i7 up to 4.2 GHz from 2.66, 24/7 stable with this thing. Temps were very well managed even with this 60+% OC.

    Keep in mind that the i5s have a lower TDP than the i7s and therefore don't require the extreme amount of cooling that the i7s do. Still, if you're going to push it to the limit, I'd go with a CM V6 or V8.
