    Cooler Master Hyper 212

    Excellent cooling for the money.

    PS: Your temps aint that bad at all.
  2. 60-70degrees celsius isnt bad for a cpu? so would you say its safe to play a game at 70C cpu temp? what point do i start worrying?
  3. get one of the Corsair H series.... H50 or 70, my i7-2600K is OC'd to 4.4 and runs @ 45C in game...
  4. Your CPU usually does great under 70c. Above that its getting abit risky but it aint gonna go boom. It also differs from CPU to CPU and from brand to brand alot.

    Personally i would not buy an aftermarket cooler if your temps doesnt often exceed 72c. Although purchasing one of those i listed above would probably bring it down to under 50c in games. Its up to you, my friend.

    PS: I would strongly advise you to ignore the post above. You are not in need of watercooling if your not planning to overclock your system highly.
    @corroded: try to fit in fatjoebro's situation instead of bragging about your completely irrelevant oc temps.
  5. ill never overclock ro buy watercooling due to the riskiness of it haha thank you guys. i think im still going to monitor my temps and if they indeed do exceed 70 consistently im going to purchase the cooler master 212 that is a good one right? easy to install?
    i appreciate the help.
  6. Its very good and quite easy to install. You should be very pleased with it.
  7. I have the Zalman CNPS 9900 MAX. The price is very reasonable, and my i7 2600k is idle at about 25 - 30 degrees Celsius. It fits you'r socket, check it out.
  8. thx again guys
