Trying to find a simple to install Cooler for the I5 3570k CPU.

Nothing too crazy like water cooling but something better then the stock cooler.

Motherboard is a: Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3h

I've heard people saying its pointless since my motherboard might not be able to overclock the cpu. But I pride myself in having my system run very cool. And regardless would like a simple to install cooler for that processor.

Simple meaning: Installing without having to remove the motherboard. Similar to installing the stock cooler that comes with the CPU.

Thanks again.

Big shout out to all the fellas and possibly gals that help people like me all the time. Your knowledge and expertise is greatly appreciated.

I really like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo/+. If you have access to the backside of the board you don't need to take it out of the case.

I have access to the mobo if I take both sides of the case out. Would that be enoug to install the cooler?

Also my socket is the 1155. While the hyper 212 says 1156 would this still allow me to fit if in into the 1155?

If your motherboard tray has a cutout under the cpu you should be able to install the hyper 212 all right without removing the motherboard. It will work fine on 1155. They come with decent thermal paste.
