  1. They like all other intel CPU's come with a std heat sink which is not suitable for good overclocks, an aftermarket heat sink is recommended.

  3. I think I will buy the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212

    Do you think it will fit in a coolermasterHAF922 case ?

    Good choice for the fact you don't need a $50+ h/s with these sandy bridge cpu's in order to keep them cool with a decent o/c. And yes that case has more than enough room for that h/s.
  5. Yes it should fit fine. The cooler is 158.5mm tall and the case is 253mm wide.
  6. My friend has a Hyper 212 and a Haf 922, it fits PERFECT
