Need non push pin budged friendly air cooler for OC

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,Im tired of this push pin method im always like to break the motherboard and sure ill do that if i still go with push pin...
anyway,im looking for a price/performance air cooler for my i5 2500k because the stock cooler is F***ng pathetic.

Beside the CM Hyper 212 plus I could add some bucks and get better one.

I also cant find an aftermarket bolt thru kit,thats why im asking in here, there are a lot of good heatsinks with thick 8mm copper pipes and they do well on cooling but unfortunately they all using the cheapy plastic push pins.


1-Xigmatek HDT-S1284F

2-Thermalright Cogage True Spirit

3-Xigmatek Nepartak

4-Xigmatek HDT-SD964W

5-Sunbeam core contact freeze etc.. but theyre all push pin :S

Any suggestions?

The Hyper 212+ is a fantastic cooler if you're on a budget. What's your maximum price?

Thanks for your reply,as I said I could get the hyper 212+ but looking something better than hyper 212+. I could spare maximum 50$ smile.gif

After Hyper 212 next upgrade is Noctua DH-14 or Thermalright Silver Arrow. While there are better coolers in sub $50 range, it is not better to justify extra spending from Hyper 212.

212 EVO makes it easier to apply TIM due to packed up heatpipes. Temperature wise it is not that ahead from 212 Plus. You can definitely pick up 212 Plus and not miss much.

i agree with above, honestly, between the hyper 212+ or other similar cheap decent coolers and the D14 or SA, there really isn't any point in getting the others, but i guess if its your first cooler you could always get something like megahelm or fenir or true
