Best After-market cooler for the i7 2600K? Tags: CPUs Cooling Intel i7 Product Last response: August 25, 2011 8:26 PM in CPUs Share chadclifton March 21, 2011 1:49:23 PM I'm looking to do away with the Intel one and get a good one 3rd party, but I don't want to have to deal with Liquid cooling madness. So what I am looking for is either a air or self contained, easy to install water-based cooling soluation. What do you guys and girls like?

Can't see any reason for going higher for now, especially with the 570GTX and RAM helping out. majin ssj eric March 21, 2011 4:20:57 PM Just installed a Hyper 212+ on my 2600k this weekend and my temps dropped 20C+ under load. I'm OC'ed to 4533MHz and Intel Burn Test caps at 70C now. Idle temps get as low as 23C... soloby March 21, 2011 4:28:40 PM Yup. I have my 2500k at 4.5 with the 212+ and idle/load with prime95 is at 32/65. I definitely recommend the 212+ chadclifton March 21, 2011 4:34:36 PM Thanks guys, ordering now. cybersrs August 25, 2011 8:26:07 PM Please, could someone tell me if can I install the cooler CM RR-B10-212P-G1 (Hyper 212) on Asus P8Z68-V Pro?
