Wanting new cpu cooler

Hey all! So I just built a new system and after finding out how awful my stock cooler is, I am looking for a new one.

System Specs:
Core i5 3570k
Gigabyte GTX 670
MSI Z77A-G41
8gb of dual channel corsair vengeance
OCZ 600W power supply
2tb drive
and a Corsair 400R case

I was looking at a cooler master Hyper 212+ or a cooler master v6 GT. I was wondering which would be better for my system and which would honestly actually fit in my case. I don't want liquid cooling for this build as I am on a budget. And while some of you may say I am not on a budget due to my gpu, know that it was a gift (along with the cpu and motherboard) and I did not pay for it.

So which one would be best and would fit?

Thanks for the help!

  1. Hyper 212 Plus is, for the most part, the best choice unless you are planning to overclock the cpu to its absolute limits, to which i would recommend the V6GT or the TPC 812.
  2. For more $10 (after rebate) you can get COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099
  3. if you want to get a really good cooler get a noctua NH-D14 although it is HUGE link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018
  4. Take your pick mate the first two are for hardcore overclocking the other two are for mild overclocking CPU Cooler:THERMALRIGHT SILVER ARROW DUAL14CM ROUND FAN HEATSINK

  5. Lol!I didn't even read your post i apologize as for your question either one would fit the v6 has a led strip on it which you can change the colors and it also is a little better than the evo the evo is so popular because of it's price and how well it preforms really it's up to you to decide because either one will do.
  6. Thanks all! I plan to overclock to 4.0 Ghz at the most, is the evo still the best for keeping the temps low?
  7. You can go 4.0 GHz with an Hyper 212 EVO without any problems.
  8. Any idea what the idle temps would be around?
  9. 40-50 degrees celcius
  10. Ok, thanks! What about at stock speeds?
  11. There are too many factors, all I know is it will be lower than the stock cooler.

  13. Good point. My stock cooler is idling around 35C, the cores fluctuate from 25C to 42C...
