would a cooler master hyper 212 evo or plus do it or do i need at least a h60

More about : 3570k cpu cooler atleast ghz

The H60 and Hyper 212 Evo have pretty similar performance. 2 Fans on an Evo setup as Push/Pull should do it. If you want a good water cooling loop, the Corsair H80 & H100 or the Antec H20 620 & H20 920.

An evo 212 can handle a 4.3Ghz OC

Hey there, you could definately go with the 212 Evo, it is an excellent cooler for an even better price. One thing you should note though is that it is not the best in class. If you're willing to pay a little extra get a Noctua NH-D14. The Noctua runs about 6 degrees celsius cooler than the 212 Evo which I feel is quite substantial see as Ivy Bridge runs pretty hot as it is. Adding an extra fan to an Evo 212 makes minimal difference and increases the price by $15.

I feel that you should avoid all-in-one liquid cooling solutions; they don't provide for very much air flow around the voltage regulator modules which is especially important when overclocking.

Those all in one Water Cooling solutions are actually pretty excellent. My H80 keeps my 3770K below 60C under load @ 5GHz. And how much airflow they allow to voltage reg modules depends entirely on the case you own and where you mount the radiator. Also adding an extra fan to the 212 Evo can know temps down 5C, which is worth $15 (and seeing as you can get a decent 120MM for $7...).

any cpu cooler closer to 50 bucks that would do it, i was hoping i wouldnt have to spend 100 bucks on a cpu cooler

Either the Evo or H60 would do it. The Evo would even be slightly better than the H60 with a second fan for push/pull (since the H60 is only 1C cooler than the Evo in most tests that I've seen, and adding the second fan to the Evo drops the temps by 3-5C under load).

wow an 3770k @ 5 ghz under 60 degrees with h80? thats very nice!! my 3570k @ 5 ghz under prime load has 90°C. but only with single fan h80.

I meant to type H100, oops. Although the difference between the H80 and H100 isn't huge with only 2 fans. I have 4 on my H100 in a push/pull.

Those liquid cooler aren't really that good. A powerful air cooler will outperform them and with less noise and cheaper price. HR-02 Macho is may be the best bang-for-buck higher-end cooler while Silver Arrow (Extreme) is the king of the hill.

Dude, you're so wrong it's not even funny. The nicer water cooling loops are excellent. Yes those are nice air coolers and they are competitive with cooling ability. However, they aren't any quieter at all, and they hardly are cheaper. They aren't really much better at cooling, if at all either. They also are massive and can have trouble fitting in cases where a nice H80 will easily fit and they can block RAM slots.

It's entirely a matter of preference.

Coming from someone that has a H100... :lol: 

Of course you would say that. I, on the other hand, can't stand closed loop coolers. I think they're just a waste of money for most people. The only time a closed loop cooler makes any sense is when an air cooler won't fit, or causes RAM clearance issues.

Do they work, and work relatively well? Sure they do, but I'd rather have high end air or a real W/C loop.

I did state it was a matter of preference which one to get didn't? I pointed out exactly what you did. A nice air cooler can keep up with or even beat an H100, no doubt, but to say they are a waste of money isn't really true. Some people prefer the loops for a lot of reasons.

I do agree with that (aesthetics, mostly), but there is around a $25-$35 price difference between comparable air and closed loop coolers. Not a huge amount, but it's money that can be put to better use elsewhere.
