hey guys, im running an i5-3570 @ stock (dah) and it hits 78oC while folding, thats too high for my liking, folding is probably the most CPU intensive task i will be performing, (although this does stress the cpu for extended periods) is it worth forking out $43 for a P/P set up on the Hyper212 evo or just paying $30 for a P/P on the TX3 evo?


Thanks, LordTumnas

i got the hyper tx3, and it does a great job, although i havnt overclocked yet, but yeah the 212 is better. I only paid about $18 for my tx3, i tried another fan for push pull and it did nothing, unless i cranked the fan up to rediculous levels and it was too noisy. I dont see the point in push/pull, i'm sure benchmarks will show 1 or 2 degrees better, but for the added noise its not worth it imo.

ive seen temp tests on a heavily overclocked i5-2500k where the p/p hyper212 evo was about three-five degrees (celcius) cooler than a single fan configuration
