post #11 of 14
If you dont OC there is no point of getting that. you need to oc first to see if that H80 will be worth it.

if you got the 212+ now...there is no point of buying the H80. You won't see a substantial improvement that will warrant anything. A OC chip running at 65-70C on a 212+ vs. an OC chip running at 8-10C lower on the H80 won't make a huge difference at all when you are both OC at 4.5 ghz already.

Save your money from a H80 and grab yourself a 60gb SSD
