Was posting in ur first thread, but i read some sites saying that the cooling difference is only 3-5 degrees, really it matters if u want the lights of the zalman, or the cheaper cost of the 212 with dual fans. My assumption is that the cooling difference wont affect much unless ur doing a high OC. This tends to be more of a cost to looks battle lol.
I actually plan on opening my side panel and pointing a fan in even after upgrading because my gigabyte 670 windforce makes my CPU really hot by blowing all the hot air into it. I guess I will go with the evo and if necessary buy a second fan for it for push/pull or whatever. thanks
