I swear by the CM hyper 212 evo. I use them in push pull with CM sickle flow 120 mm fans and arctic silver 5 paste and have never had any system come close to max temp

It keeps my 960T that i overclocked 1.25Ghz under 50c after 24 hours of max load. I have become so comfortable with this cooler that I dont even question it's capability anymore and see it as a viable cooling solution for most any situation (minus EXTREME OC'ing like world records)

This is the Enermax ETS T-40, not many people know it but it does perform better than the 212 by just a bit. If you can find it cheaper than the 212 then consider going with it.

Also you should take a look at this:

The Enermax is a bit better than the Hyper 212 when it comes to handling overclocks as seen in the benchmark.

An alternative to the DH-14 that actually performs better with a bit of a lesser price is the Phanteks PH-TC14PE.

Edit: What is your computer case? These are some monstrous looking CPU coolers that need quite a bit of space.

Hahaha, that's not a problem. Like I said the Hyper 212 and Enermax cooler are very close, I only recommend the Enermax when it goes on sale and is very close to the Hyper 212 in terms of price. Anyways the DH-14/Phanteks will fit fine since you have more than enough room.

haha okay!,also sorry for being a pain in the a** but could you recommend a real decent mobo? 100/140£ i was getting a asrock z77 pro4 but theres mixed reviews and it doesnt support sli, so anything you would personally use?


i am looking towards the gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, anygood?

Hey no problem, I will look for one in a few minutes, will edit the post to include it. (bit busy ATM answering other threads :lol:  )
November 23, 2012 1:12:46 AM

alright:)  will look over in 20 or so minutes(hard job you got going;))
November 23, 2012 1:24:44 AM

yes i am:) ,would you personally buy one for a rig if you were to build a new rig?
November 23, 2012 1:25:33 AM

^okay at that price I wont lie but the hyper 212 is a win win compared to the Enermax :lol: 
If you want to close the gap between the 212 evo and plus then add a second fan on to it to create the push-pull configuration which causes 2-5 degrees of a difference typically.

Edit: I would buy the AsRock Extreme 4 if I was building an Intel build, too bad that's not happening for a while until I finish saving up for that 3570k rig which I am halfway through, I bet by that time when I'm finished the Haswell will be out and I will need to think about re-selecting a build :lol:
