A70 vs CM Hyper 212 vs ???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hello guys,


my question is, which budget cooler should I get?

I know many OCNers like the hyper 212, but here, in germany, the A70 is only 8€ (11$) more.

I need the cooler for oc'ing my 2500k, 4,6-4,8ghz is my goal.


any other suggestions? please no Noctua NH14 and stuff, this is not on my budget.


thanks guys and rep ² all with helping answers.

They're both great coolers. Most people go with the Hyper 212+ because it's so cost effective, but if you can get the A70 for only $11 more, I would go with that.

From most of the reviews I seen the A70 does performed very well, but you should noticed the two fans setup to achieved such performance. In the end is it really better than the CM 212+, probably just around the similar performance difference is minimal between the two.
