Hi guys i have a i5-2500k cpu and its overheating alot lately so i want to buy a good cpu cooler for under £70 if thats possible? ive found a cool zalman cooler that would match the rest of my setup but according to what ive read its brand new and i cant find any reviews on it.

arctic freezer i30 have a good review and expert recommendation.cheaper too.30pound i think.it can easily handle overclocked 2500k 4.5Ghz.

Are you sure that would be a good cooler for me? i play games ALOT and at this moment my cpu's idle temp is between 48 and 51C on 4 cores for some reason when it should be below 40... ive found a few more but i dont know if they will do what i need what do you think?

dark pro is quite good too,but i wouldnt spend more than 30 quid on cpu cooler alone.if money isnt a problem,go for h100,if budget do concerns, i30 freezer would do almost the same job as those monstrosities.

Would that still be good enough? all reviews i can find of it are a year or 2 old

Ok thank you :)  but what is better between the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and the i30 freezer? and would there be a big diffirence between them and the h100?

I own a hyper 212 and a 2500k at 4.5
It does the job very well esp for the price

Nice, what temps do you get while idle and under full load?

I have an X6 3.8ghz 192w tdp overclocked AMD with a 212 evo and by golly, I lost 50 degC by stepping up from the stock cooler.

My CPU temp under stress is 63degC under prime95!

P95 temps on each core is as follows...
56,60,61,58
Typical gaming no core over 55 and idle cores from 28 to 30
Its a great cooler for 30 bux
