Get on your senses people and stop senselessly recommending the Hyper 212+
. Although it is a good heatsink that I have recommended to friends before, at present it is NOT the best bang for buck heatsink choice
. Look harder - there are better heatsinks available at lower prices.
The Hyper 212+ to meh has turned into a "meh" thing. The Sunbeam Twister
is a better deal for around the same price - it comes with dual fans, better thermal paste and OUTPERFORMS the 212+. The Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer
is a better deal for a lower price - it provides roughly the same performance.
Ensure your VRMs are cooled properly (heatsinks) if you pursue aftermarket CPU cooling - this will remove VRM cooling, which may be unsafe on a limited 4+1 setup.Edited by xd_1771 - 8/18/11 at 1:40am
