So my 2 options are hyper 212+ and corsair A70 given my budget. Which one is better of these two? And what size fan would I need if i wanna add another fan onto hyper 212+ ?
post #14 of 18
its 120mm for hyper 212 plus. both will probably perform simlar considering they're both direct touch. However looks like a70 already comes with 2 fans so price of both will be pretty much equal if u buy another fan for 212 plus for 10 bucks or so..

edit: acutally nvm A70 is cheaper with mail in rebate and it looks like it has thicker heatpipes thus better cooling

The A70 is MUCH better than the 212+
four 8mm heat pipes vs four 6mm heat pipes means almost double the heat transferring capacity.

I have an H60 in push/pull keeping my i5-2500k that's OC'd to 4.6ghz nice and cool. I'd recommend it, especially because it has the simpler installation than the 70 and 50. My 2 cents.
