It will keep your pc quieter under load and let you oc higher. Backplate mount is easier and more secure too. | Report abuse Related ressources Amd cpu phenom over clocking help - Forum Over clocking my cpu - Forum Over clocking my CPU - Forum My FX-8350 lags upon under AND over clocking in a strange way? - Forum Sub $100 gaming MOBO SLI and Over-Clocking Capable - Forum Ask the community Publish keenanfullbuster February 27, 2012 6:43:48 AM Thanks a lot guys ) | Report abuse amuffin CPUs Master Overclocking Authority February 27, 2012 6:55:15 AM Cooler Master Hyper 212+! | Report abuse keenanfullbuster March 26, 2012 4:05:57 AM Best answer selected by keenanfullbuster. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>CPU over clocking & cooling system> Related ressources: ForumOver clocking ForumAbout over clocking and cooling ForumIm new in over clocking and need help ForumBest X79 board for over clocking ?
