hi i want to know that is this 212 evo is good for fx 8150 or should i get h60 which one is great for lowering temp at full load
i know h60 is water cooling but still hyper 212 evo is cooler which one

More about : 212 evo h60

h100 is out of budget

Why not get the H100? It's about the same price difference from the h60 as the h60 is from the 212.

Unless you can't fit a 240 rad. Then go for the 212. Honestly the 212 is fine for everyone unless you want the best of the best (which would be a custom loop).

They perform very nearly the same (the H60 is about 1C cooler in most tests that I've seen), so it's a toss up, really.

I prefer the 212 Evo, personally. Almost half the price of the H60 for nearly the same cooling performance.

Not as good as the 212 Evo.

Then the H60 may be the best choice.

You can, however, just raise the fan of the 212 Evo up to clear the RAM (assuming that you install it parallel to the RAM slots). If you install it perpendicular to the RAM slots, you may need Low Profile RAM (but you may with with a lot after market air coolers, anyway. That's the only real reason to use a closed loop water cooler).

Are you using all 4 slots anyway?

I honestly don't know if it will or not, but unless you're using all 4 slots, it doesn't even matter.

Yeah, that's some tall RAM (I have a Ripjaws X 1600 kit myself).

Well, like I said, if you install the 212 Evo so that the fan is is parallel to the RAM, you can just raise it up (what I would do). It's also possible to just switch the fan to the other side of the cooler and make it a "pull" fan, instead of a "push" fan (it's the fan that causes the problem, as you can see, at least in that configuration).

so will it take any difference instead of push into pull will increases the temp of cpu by pull method

Not much (a degree or two at most).

I hate to say it because I don't like the thought of closed loop water coolers costing as much as they do for how they perform, but in your case, I think it probably is the best choice, yeah.

and full load 70 will 212evo perform well and how much cooler then my cpu


I honestly don't know what your exact temps will be (too many factors involved to know), but it'll definitely be cooler than that.

Idle won't be a lot cooler (doesn't matter anyway), but I'd say load will be in the low to mid 50's.

That I really can't tell you because I have no idea what voltage you'll need, etc. My best guess (and that's literally all it is, a guess) is around 60 or a little more.

I had a Hyper 212+ with push/pull ( EVO a bit better) and could crank my 8150 to @4.2 Ghz before the temps got too high. I went to a CM HAF 912 case (in retropect a bit too small) AND a Corsair H100 and now running solid at 4.5 Ghz When these 8150s get OC'd they start to really ramp up the power and thermals. Since your budget is pretty limited buy the Hyper 212 EVO with matched 120 mm fans for Push/Pull and see if your temps are acceptable up to 4.2 Ghz.

Be warned that the 8150 uses Tons of power and gives off tons of heat as you ramp up the clock speed from stock. When I refer to 4.2 GHz that is for all 8 cores.The 8150 runs all eight stock at 3.6 8 at 3.9 turbo but only 4 cores at 4.2 Ghz. When you run all eight cores at 4.2 Ghz and above watch the heat build and the power usage spike!
