Is getting CM Hyper 212+ worth it for i5 2500K ?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Just wandering cause i wanted to save some money and go with stock since i will be only overclocking to 4.0-4.5 GHz ?

And also how much temperatures will be with stock and how much will it be for CM Hyper 212+ ?

It is worth it for sure. I wouldn't even raise clock rates by 0.2GHz with the stock cooler. That thing is a piece of junk.

My temps with my 2500k at 4.5GHz 1.32v 24/7 is around 30-35 degrees idle and 57-60 degrees while on full load while folding, which are more than acceptable temperatures.

The stock fan on the 212+ is pretty good too. I added a second fan a few days ago though for push/pull and that dropped temps by 3 degrees and it acts as a safety incase one fan fails during the middle of the night while folding.

Intel HSF is a joke (expect it to skyrocket to 80C). For 4.5GHz and below, 212+/EVO is a perfect choice.

To give you an example. For my i3 2100 with Intel HSF, Prime95 pushed the temperature to 70C. With 212 EVO the temperature drops to 45C.

It's definitely worth it to pick up the 212 imo.

I have a Hyper 212+ and it keeps my i5 nice and cool. Microcenter sells them for like $27, so if you have a MC nearby, check it out. Definitely worth it, especially for OC'ing.

Yup, I'm definitely happy with mine! 4.5 GHz with 1.35v at 61C max.

Totally worth it. As people above said, the stock cooler is junk. My temps were hitting 60+ even without overlclocking. THe 212 dropped that to a nice 28.

But will less temps make the performance in rendering and games increased ?

I'm not really understanding your question, but with rendering and games, the temps will never be as high as folding or torture testing with Prime95. For normal/everyday use, the Hyper 212+ (Original or EVO) will be perfect.
