I had a 212 on my 2500k and I thought it was junk but that's just me.

I'm a hardcore gamer, and I won't be doing any extreme OCing or anything like that, I don't feel comfortable playing with voltages

V6 GT? 50$ on amazon and outperforms H60 with stock fans, or Corsair A70 only 37$ and is 3°C hotter than V6 GT

If you are planning on pushing your chip but still being safe i'd say get the h60. I used to have a 212plus but it couldn't cope with 5ghz on my chip @ 1.448 volts.

As you say you wont be trying to clock too high then the 212plus should be plenty.
When i got my chip i said to myself i wont be gunning for 5ghz but here you go after a few days i deemed my 212plus insufficient.

lol wat? i got my 2500k to 4.7ghz at 1.25v

used a H60. temps got barely broke 70c when i was at 4.6ghz i had it at 5ghz at 1.35v but temps were touching 80c it was for a friend so i didnt want to be too high.

all 2500k should get to 4.5ghz at 1.3v easy.

the 212+ was my first option but i had the H60 laying around so used it instead. would go push and pull to get the most out of it.

__________

edit.

omg u guys are crazy over 1.4v just to get 4.5+?

doesnt temps go over 80c on stress test? would hate the numbers in the summer.

Does the v6gt outperform the 212+?
post #18 of 35
Always look at coolers base it will tell you everything about the quality of the product and the performance you will get with it.

For eample a CM H212+:
http://media.photobucket.com/image/recent/andrineri/TPU/Hyper212_base2.jpg
Notice the cpu base is not solid and has space between the heatpipes and the block itself. This dead space will not make contact with the cpu causing the temps to rise and performance to drop.

Now a noctua
http://benchmarkreviews.com/images/reviews/cooling/Best_CPU-Coolers_Q1-2010/Noctua_NH-D14_CPU-Cooler_Heatsink_Base.jpg
Notice the smooth, flat, mirror finish it will provide contact to the entire surface of the cpu giving it the best cooling performance.

You get what you pay for when it comes to coolers!

Yes ,it Does but at 100% is really good but makes noise

You do realize that 72c is considered by almost every overclocker to be the max thermal temp for a core iX series.
