Upgrade to hyper 212+?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'd like to push my i5-750 to 4ghz. I've heard my cooler isn't great for quad cores and I've heard good things about the hyper 212 price/performance. Is it worth the upgrade (will I have a decent chance at 4ghz)? Would I be better off getting something like the Corsair H60?

Thanks

The hyper 212+ is a great cooler but if you want the best I would suggest you go with the Noctua NH-D14.. its huge though so make sure it fits in your case

I know that's the best air cooler though I feel like a closed loop water cooler like the H60/H80 wouldn't be able to beat it and they are cheaper. I'm also guessing the noctua isn't going to give me 3x the performance and it costs 3x as much.

Lol is that you saying it's worth the upgrade? That's a massive difference. The noctua is so dominant.

Anything listed there is certainly worth the upgrade over your current HSF; here's another benchmark using your exact i5-750 overclocked to 4GHz.



As you can see, the Noctua is still on top, with the H50 (you mentioned the H60 before) just a couple of degrees behind.

I can also recommand you a Corsair H80/100. I have an H100 and have 65 degrees load temps on a i7 2600k at 4.8ghz and at 5.2 i had 75. I stay at ~4.6 usually and my full load prime temps are 57-61 depending how hot my room is.

Don't forget the Megahalems, Venomous-X or Super-Mega... but at their current prices, they may be too much compared to the low price, and great performance of the 212+.

I got my Venomous-X when it was 50 bucks on Amazon, it's now 70 atm.

Fry's is selling the Hyper 212+ for $19.99 and it'll get you to 4ghz if your chip can handle it. If that's all you're looking for, there's no need to spend more money for a higher end cooler. I use three Hypers and they're great for the price. A quick and cheap upgrade for them is simply to add another fan for push/pull. They even come with the brackets to hold the extra fan if you decide to do it later.

Depending on your budget, there are many options out there. Having your budget would help. Take for instance, the

A70 A70
can be had for ~22 at Amazon, or I know Best Buy stores are having them on Clearance for 19.99. But limited as there moving em out quick.
Plus, there is the Sunbeam Twister 120 $23, comes with 2 nice 120mm fans and a tube of TX-4. But, if your budget is higher, then the $103 @ Amazon, with free 2day Prime shipping!!

(BTW, if you are a student, or have a .edu email. You can get a free Amazon Prime membership!)
