so i'm planning to get a cpu cooler for my 3570k and i'm deciding between:

deepcool gammaxx 400
deepcool ice blade

i'm aiming for a 4.2ghz oc at most, no 24/7 usage or folding. just gaming and regular pc usage. i'm leaning towards the gammaxx as it's a bit cheaper but if the ice blade provides better cooling, i might as well get it. any thoughts?

cheers!

I'd get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

The ice blade has more surface area on the cooling fins but is larger so make sure it will clear the top of your RAM and MoBo heat-sinks. I could not find prices to compare so I'm not sure how much more you have to pay for the added surface area.
Just my $0.02

I like the design of the deepcool ice blade pro. It has an interesting fin design.

thanks...i can get the ice blade locally for about php1550 (~$35) compared to the gammaxx @php1400(~$32) so i feel it's a pretty good deal.

too bad it's crazy hard to find a 212 here.
