I'm really not planning on pushing over 4ghz

it does have hsf, the 4ghz is a stock overclock, mine does, but the temperature rise on load is bit high 70C to 80+C depends on the ambient using stock heatsink

Yeah.. For reference it essentially uses the same cooler as a Core 2 Duo E8500. (Just a slightly different size). The actual metal is the same size.

A friends i5 2400 @ stock was topping 100c with IBT. We got a $33 Hyper 212+ and its down to about 50c now. It would also assist his overclock if he had a 2500k.
It's also ALOT quieter too.

I just try and add at least a Hyper 212+ to any build i do now, just for the silence of it and temperature drop. I recently actually tried a Macho on a friends build (2500k) just to see what it was like and it's amazing!

If you have the cash go for a 212+. I do suggest it, if you can fork out the extra $20 a Macho is a fair bit better!
