Heat Sink Help Tags: New Build Systems Last response: March 8, 2012 1:43 AM in Systems Share ryanjh March 7, 2012 11:02:06 PM I'm updating my system (more of a new computer while recycling some older parts) and trying to determine which heat sink to purchase: Cooler Master Hyper 212 $35 http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-RR-212E-2... or Noctua 6 Dual Heatpipe $82 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002VKVZ1A/ref=ox_sc_a... Budget I prefer buying quality parts that will last a long time versus cheap and short time. But that being said I'm trying to go as 'cheap' as possible. New Build (not purchased yet) CPU: i5-2500K Mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 Case: Cooler Master HAF X Full Tower RAM: Corsair Memory Vengeance16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 'Recycled' GPU: 5770 Radeon Dual HD LCD Monitor setup PSU: Corsair HX750 Usage I'm not a big gamer but I play Skyrim and I'm a big Photoshop user. Overclocking I've never done it before but I intend give it a try this time around. Note: I built my current system 4 years ago with some help so I'm not a complete noob but I'm not an experienced builder either.

Save the money and invest it elsewhere in your build. m 0 l ryanjh March 8, 2012 1:26:24 AM Thanks! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
