I cant decide between these two coolers, I know the cooler master is just a fan with heat sinks, and the Corsair is Liquid CPU Cooler which something unfamiliar with?? But sounds neat lol If someone could shed some light on these two or maybe recommend something better that would be fantastic Thanks

i think you should go for the h60 i had one and it kept my cpu cool if you can afford it the h100 is better but costs alot more but if your not overclocking the h60 would be fine.

well Hxx is no better than high end air coolers.H60 stock fan is crap.i would suggest a better air cooling option like D14 or silver arrow.latter one is dead silent!

Get the H70 Core (which comes without fans) and put your own fans on it. That way you don't spent money on a fan you are going to replace anyway and the H70 has a bigger radiator than the H60, aka more cooling capacity.

Pump Noise is the only bad thing that you might encounter. And yes you can get a high end air cooler for about the same price, which can be totally silent for sure.

The really good air coolers are a beast size wise, which can kinda suck, also the Hxx doesn't get in the way of your RAM, ever, even with 2 fans on it.

How much are you wanting to Overclock? I personally would go with Air cooling over Watercooling any day unless its a custom loop system.

I say go with the 212. If you want AMAZING cooling go with a more topend cooler like the Noctua.

http://www.amazon.com/Noctua-Heatpipe-Bearing-Cooler-NH...

While large it will provide epic cooling.

Prolimatech Megahalem or Super Mega (successor of Megahalem) are good choices, too. Albeit their naming suxx (imo :D  ...), they are top tier heatsinks and do not take away to much space since they are more built to the sides and height instead of depth. You can run fans at extremely low RPM on these and still get low temps.

^It can Overclock Core i5 2500k to 4.3GHz without any problems..while keeping it under 65C

& also it comes with a 1 fan attachment.. :kaola:

If u had a Core i7 2600k or Core i7 2700k then i would have suggest u to go for Corsair H100 .. ;) 


why?do you think 212+ can't cool 2700k?

I have an H50 (older) that runs a 120mm fan/radiator. It kept my OCed Q8200 at 23C and my stock i3-2100 at 24C (idle, never goes over 40C on both CPUs). I replaced the fan with a Yate Loon when I bought all new fans for my Antec 300. The thing works great, and makes NO noise except for the radiator/case fan, which you will have anyway more than likely for cooling to begin with.

If you get a Corsair, I would recommend using the fan as exhaust, check temps, then use it as intake (adjust other fans as needed to maintain you + or - pressure) and see how it runs better. Mine worked better as intake and then I run my 2 front intake and side and top to exhaust. My 2 cents...

Overclocking Core i7 2700k to 5GHz+ with Corsair H100 is worth it..

But using Corsair H100 with Core i5 2500k is definitely not worth it.. :)

a few more mhz does not justifies price difference of more than $70($25 vs $100+) :pfff:

and why is that? for gaming 2500k>2600k/2700k.
and is H100 liquid watercooling?

1GHz overclock on i7 is much more powerful than 1GHz overclock on i5.. :p
