people saying tht cooler is 70c but they dont say if it is oc or not
Keeps my i5-2500k below 70C all the time no matter how long the load.
70c is out of my comfy zone i love building Computers but i wont love frying my cpus im trying to keep the cpu a long time about 5-10 years im even going to get a modular psu soon to keep the air flow going stronger i want to make my computer last along time because it will need to with a gtx 560ti
I have a i7-2600K with a COOLER MASTER 212 Plus. On full load (not overclocked) the highest temp I've hit is 52C. That is only one fan. I could buy another fan and put it on but I don't plan too unless I want to overclock it. I don't see the need yet to overclock yet so... yeah. I recommend 212 Plus.
Alright, my final suggestion is go with Hyper 212+ and use the stock thermal paste that comes with it and save $10 not buying Arctic Silver 5.
Just so you know, it's safe to have temps up to 75C according to Intel I think. I know lots of people say this though. I've had my laptop CPU run up to 89C and it works fine like nothing ever happened. I didn't know that it was dangerous then. =) So this fan will definitely keep your CPU at a constant 50C-55C range at full load.
I just realized you had two threads about CPU fans. Well, I've already suggested a 2nd fan so use that Arctic Silver 5 money for that $10 fan instead. I've read that it can decrease temps by 5C or so.
