    Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. Unless you're shooting for super high OC's at any point, that will be plenty. I'm at 4.5 with my 212 Evo (push/pull, so not completely stock) and my temps in Prime 95 (constant 100% load @ 1.277V) are 58-62C.
  4. EVO is nice but the 212+ can often be had cheaper is $20 now after MIR on newegg for almost the same cooling performance!

    Very true. Only a few degrees difference (if that, depending on how well you apply the thermal paste with the 212+. That's really the main reason why I like to recommend the Evo over the Plus. Harder to screw up the thermal paste application on the Evo.)
  6. alright thanks for the suggestions guys!
