More about : 3570k stock cooler height DJDeCiBeL July 6, 2012 6:25:57 PM Just went and dug out the stock HSF for my 2500K (I don't use it, since I have a 212 Evo), but I think it's the same as the one for the 3570K. I measured it, and it's a little over 1.75 Inches or about 46 mm tall from where it touches the CPU to the top plastic bits on top. naama July 6, 2012 6:40:56 PM DJDeCiBeL said:Just went and dug out the stock HSF for my 2500K (I don't use it, since I have a 212 Evo), but I think it's the same as the one for the 3570K.

By the way, why did you choose not to use the stock cooler?? Heavy OC? Was the cooler loud at stock CPU clock?

At a 4.1 OC, I was running 85C+ in Prime 95 with the stock cooler, and now, at 4.5 with the 212 Evo in push/pull, I'm in the high 50's and low 60's with Prime. HUGE difference, lol. naama July 6, 2012 6:52:10 PM Yeah, huge indeed . I think stock is enough for me though. If it's quiet enough... Thx for help. DJDeCiBeL July 6, 2012 6:56:58 PM You're welcome.
