Hi,

I am on the hunt for a good(quiet) CPU cooler for a Intel i5 2500K that will be OC a bit. This CPU is placed in a Fractal Design R3 with orginal fans(2). Regular memmory modules is used (no extreme heatsink).

I hade the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro on my Q6600 OC that i was vary pleased with but I supose that this will not work that good on a i5.

So I have been looking some alternatives :

Antec Kühler H20 620 : 42,40 EUR
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus : 33,81 EUR
Cooler Master Hyper 612 PWM : 42,40 EUR
Noctua NH-U12P SE2 : 54,27 EUR

Any suggestions?

Kuhler is a liquid cooling kit.
the best choice would be 212+

for high overclocking go for Antec Kühler H20 620
for normal overclocking go with hyper 212+

Yes, it might cool a couple (2-3) degree extra, but is it a "best buy"? I will not overclock extremly much but I need it to be silent when not gaming.

It sounds like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus would be a great buy.

Antec Kuhler 620 In my book. If you can't afford it wait until you can. Side bonus of water cooling is that CPU heat is directed and vented straight out of the case, meaning lower circulating air temperature for all components.
