This is a good heatsink, but according to this: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/[primary-term]/cooler_master_hyper_212_evo_review it's virtually identical to mine, which is the Hyper 212 Plus. I also have the 3570K.

For me, I am changing the CoolerMaster PWM 120mm Fan that came with my heatsink to something more performant and quieter. Specifically, I'm picking up the Noctua NF-F12.

When you get your EVO, I would run some tests and see how it performs for some time before O/C. If you are planning at staying at stock, then the CoolerMaster fan is fine, but if you ever plan to O/C, depending on your results, get something better.

I don't see the purpose of buying K sries without OC-ing it. On what speeds you have your 3570k while using Hyper 212 Plus?

Yeah, I agree.

Right now, I have it at stock and after 10 minutes on P95, it climbs to 63 with my exhaust fans set on high. On Low, after an hour, the hottest core is 67, still respectable. I prefer silence, though. So I'm switching the fan for O/C to bring it down even more, or may add another in push/pull.

However, in push/pull configuration, I hear that it's not that great. Maybe 1-2 degree difference. That may be more pronounced with two high-end fans, like the Noctua. I don't know.

The CoolerMaster Hyper 612 is pretty effective for a fair price - but steps in to the Bigger cooler style...
£32.99

The Thermalright True Spirit 140 is a Good cooler (Just beats the 612) at a slightly higher price while staying as small as the Hyper 212 Evo(£26.99)
£39.95

However the Thermalright Archon seems stunningly good for something that Very similar to the True Spirit - but is more money again. Not sure how they made it so good lol
£59.99

I might get one in my next build if when I read some more reviews showing it this well

I read in one review that the Corsair A70 was great on the Nethlam CPUs but only 2 of its 4 heatpipes contact the newer Sandybridge chips - I guess same story for Ivybridge. Even without that problem it is still not what I would call a high end cooler performance wise - so best avoid that one...

The Noctua NH-D14 is a high performance cooler - one of the best, but is quite noisy at high fan speeds, but Really pulls ahead of most other coolers performance & noise wise at Low fan speeds - see:

http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2525&page=5

But...

The Thermalright Archon quite easily beats out the Noctua NH-D14at both low and high speeds with its default fan 610 - 1260rpm by 2 - 3c or 4 - 6c depending on site review + can add another fan for another 2 - 3c cooling power and still be smaller than the Noctua

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coolers/display/thermalright-archon_4.html

Don't forget that the review I linked is of the original Archon and there have been 2 x revisions since which cool a little better still

This review of the Thermalright Archon Rev.A :

http://www.rwlabs.com/article.php?cat=&id=539&pagenumber=6

shows the NH-D14 doing a little better than the X-bit Labs review at high speed, and not falling so far behind as X-Bit Labs found on their example at lower speeds...

It seems the Thermal right Heatsinks have a tendency to have a slightly convex base and lapping their heatsinks could gain even better temps still.

Seems clear where my choice would lay atm talking about the coolers mentioned in this thread - I used to be so happy with my CoolerMaster Hyper 212, but am glad things have improved so much since then lol

oh one other thing...

the Archon is 170mm tall so make sure it will fit your chosen case

(sorry - cannot edit my posts - is that normal at the moment?)

I should also add that due to its oversize 150mm fan on the Archon... some motherboards find their 1st RAM slot can be blocked which would be a problem if you want to use all the slots on such boards

But could also fit smaller fans to this cooler ofc if stuck with a non-ideal motherboard
