Hello everyone, I have never installed any after market coolers or anything like that, but I have built computers and I have a good and general understanding of it all.
I currently have an Intel i7 2700k with the stock heat sink. It can get up to 80-90c when I am rendering 1080p videos or similar things. I am looking to lower the temperature with a after market heat sink that has an affordable price. I found this heat sink on sale for an incredible price and it has amazing reviews
Yes it will work with your processor and motherboard, I have never owned one but I am working on a build right now about I am going with the cooler master hyper 212
based on price and reviews. You may also want to consider liquid cooling
Alright, thanks for the video. Before I order this I want to make sure both my case and mother board is compatible. I believe my case has a CPU cutout. My case is an Antec DF-85, and my motherboard is BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Generally speaking, you should not worry about Motherboard+CPU cooler compatibility. If a CPU cooler manufacturer states their cooler works on a given socket, your motherboard will 99.999% of the time support the cooler as well.
The only thing you should be worried about is if your case will support your chosen CPU coolers or not (Your DF-85 will fit it just fine, so no worries there).
