Hyper 212 EVO.
Thanks for the quick reply. I just used Google to look up reviews on the Hyper 212 EVO and it looks to be exactly what I need. Have you personally used this cooler in the past? I have to admit I avoided going after market for a long time because when I bought the processor it said the warranty would be void if I used any heatsink other than the factory one. I just can't live with the high heat anymore though, I want the processor to last another year or two and its just running too hot. I know its considered to be "older" now but it handles Skyrim, and Far Cry 3 on all Ultra settings and I'm looking forward to rocking Crysis 3 as soon as I get my heat problem under control.
Tiger Direct has it on sell right now for 29.99 so I think I'm going to order it now. Thank you again for your quick response.
