haf922 i52500k cooling questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys right now I am running a stock hsf @ 3.8ghz. Runs great under crysis 2 temps hit 75 degrees or so idle <35degrees.

I am thinking about getting an aftermarket cooler, I was thinking the cooler master hyper 212 or corsair h60. These would require me to pull the motherboard out tho, which i don't mind doing but would avoid if possible.

So would either of those 2 fit in my case? If not what are other good coolers out there that would fit?
Is there a cooler that would work with the same pin configuration as the stock hsf?

Thanks in advance!

Both will easily fit in your case. The 212 is the best bang for the buck with decent fans.

The 922 doesnt have the removable door on the back of the mobo tray?

I'd say Hyper 212+ is a better choice. I consider those all-in-one "water cooling" systems to be most useful in cases with very little free space. There are definitely other, better performing coolers, though. You just have to be willing to pay and (sometimes) experiment a little to get the best performance.

no removable door but it does have a large precut hole in in the motherboard tray so i suppose that would make it easier right?

Correct but not all mobo's line up to the hole.

If it does you dont have to remove the mobo at all.
