CPU Cooler Recomendation?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hey guys, i'm going to replace my stock cooler with a better one. I got a HAF 922 and a i5-2500K. I only use my rig for running games. No overclocking, just wanna keep my cpu stable.

And 1 more thing, i prefer a cooler that is easy to install.


Any recommendations?

Thanks

If you don't mind me asking, why a K series if you're not overclocking?

I recommand this or this as best air cooler on the market but why not overclock if u get one of these coolers ? if you are under 1.5volts and under 70 degrees temp you're ok ! you won't damage your chip and you will get better performance.

Any specific reason you're replacing the stock cooler if you're not overclocking? Also, why the K series chip?

Well, i'm noob at OC & don't want to risk my cpu.

And i got high fps in many games.

So, why OC?

You don't risk anything mate you just go into bios and set multiplier to x41 for example for 4100 mhz. There are also many posts around the forums here at wonderfull overclock.net you can learn from
