i7 2600k cooler - Page 5

post #41 of 43
The 212+ has gotten me really far with my i5, but then again it's a no HT chip. I'm at 4.8ghz 1.41v right now... before I did any lapping I was basically floating around 78-80C in Prime small FFT (the 8K FFT), so that gives you an idea. Using push pull with cured AS5 paste.

4.5ghz is a really mild overclock, and while you cant do it on the stock cooler pretty much anything halfway decent will do... at least on the i5. My prime temps with the 212+ at 4.5ghz, 1.32v, were around 65C iirc... which gives plenty of room.

Go check the Sandy Stable Club for max temps on various coolers, with the i7 and HT on. These are the MAX temps though over a LONG period of time, so remember that.

Another thing to consider is not really knowing how high of a clock the chip will go. 4.5ghz most people reach, but there are a decent amount of people that can't hit a stable 4.8ghz clock. And less for 5.0ghz. Since you can get so high in clocks without a top performing cooler you have to at least consider a cheaper option. I will say though, its only an extra $20-40 for better/best, so its not the end of the world if it turns out your chip is mediocre. Can always use the cooler in the future too.

Also, coolermaster is coming out with the Hyper 612... basically seems to be a high end air cooler for $50 (based on reviews and my own personal thoughts about the thermal design). I really don't know how they do it, lol.

Why does it have to be Silent cooling?

As for silent, as in no fans at all, I would vote for the Prolimatech Megahalem.

edit: donkrx have you lapped your 2500k or your cpu cooler? What are your temps after lapping?

This may be the last generation of cpu's to need the big heatsinks. If you intend to keep the system, during its later stages software might have learned how to use hyperthreading. So the investment may pan out.

OTOH, if you swap out rigs fairly quickly you might be satisfied with a 2500K.

As for cooling, I'd recommend the best and quietest: the Silver Arrow. But make sure you buy low profile RAM. It does not tolerate tall RAM heatsinks well. And since there is lots of high quality low Voltage low profile RAM out there at reasonable prices, getting low profile RAM is no hardship.

Enjoy your rig.
