Overclocking the i5 750 - what cooler should I get?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm hoping to get a really good overclock from my 750, I don't want to upgrade yet and I know I can sqeeze more from the 2.66Ghz Chip, maybey 3.5Ghz?

But what cooler?

Coolermaster 212+
Corsair A50

Good contenders. Most likely these will help you get closer to 4GHz.

4Ghz!? I didn't think that kind of thing would be possible on this chip - i'm looking to spend around £40

I have an i5 760 and the 212+ gets me from 2.8 to 4.0 just fine. 212+ should be sufficient.

My i5 750 did 4.4ghz. I think you can do 4ghz if you feel like trying.

You should also put some effort into that 2500k.

Agree. those two are budget, but beastly coolers.

A 750 can pul. 4-4.5 GHz on air with ease.
