Recommend a good cooler for my 2500K

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I had my CPU overclocked to 4.1 ghz-4.2ghz and the temps had been pretty stable 60-65C max but i just ran burn test today and it seems that the heatsink has already given up. I was getting much higher temps no idea why that has happened. Anyway, can you guys recommend me a good cooler within $50 price range? Thanks

Coolermaster Hyper 212+

I was initally running stock cooling on my 2600 (yeah go ahead and laugh) and I was not satisfied with the temps. This little puppy allows the CPU to idle at ~31C at stock clock setting, a reduction of ~11C (3.51GHz according to Open Hardware Monitor)

Hyper 212+ is gonna be a solid pick, price and preformance. Slap a pair of ap-14's or if you can find the ap-15's and you'll be sitting pretty.

The 212+ comes with extra clips for another fan by default. Just purchase the correct size fan and you are good to go afaik
