Out of the following....Cooler Master V6 GT or Zalman CNPS9900MAX-R 135mm, which do you good people recommend for an I5 3570 3.2 GHZ CPU ? If neither, please recommend a similar cooler. Case and RAM are below:

CM HAF 922 Mid (3x200MM, 1x120mm, 1x140mm fans)
Corsair X series 3 8GB (2GB x4) RAM (low profile)


Thanks in advance.....

Do you have the i5 3570k or just the normal i5 3570? Depending, you don't need a CPU cooler at all unless you're just anal about the noise stock coolers produce.

Anyways, I would recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212+/EVO, they're relatively cheap and they will work fine with what you have.

I would get the v6 but i also agree with mocchan i5 3570? If so you don't need a aftermarket cpu cooler it's not able to overclock

The V6GT performs only slightly better than the 212EVO which costs about half as much.

The V6 GT will beat the 212 by about 6-8C. The Hyper 612 beats the 212 by 5-7C and the V6 beas that by 1C. The V6 sounds like ya at the airport tho

I used the 212 a lot on SB builds but with IB's heat signature, I try and use at least the 612 (or scythe Migen 3) wherever possible.
