really? i have 2xCM blade master on one 212+ and it doesnt sounds like that on my closed HAF 912(It has 2x fans)

Yeah. Either I got a defective fan or I'm more sensitive to fan noise or something. The Blademaster 120 that came with my 212+ is about twice as loud as my Cougar Vortex and TY-140 fans that I put in my Rosewill Challenger and it's quite a bit louder than my Scythe Kama Flows I was using for a while. I had to crank up my headphones quite a bit to make it inaudible.

A little bit more than the 212+ but comes with better out of the box performance.

I had the same experience with the 212. Also second the thermalright recommend.

The D14 is really nice, though, and I dont think you need to be doing high overclocks to appreciate a good performing cooler. More efficient cooling=less burden on fans.

As of now I'm trying to find a balance of performance, silence, and aesthetics. I want to be able to get a fairly decent overclock, while staying quiet, and not taking up half of my mobo while doing it. I think the 212+ would do a decent job, in performance and aesthetics but I havent been able to find many videos of the sound of it. The thermalrights would surely be quieter because they're 140mm fans, so lower RPM's, and they should technically perform better, but then we lose aesthetics because theyre so damn huge. I've got the Asus 6950 running at 45% fan speed all of the time, and it is the most audible thing in my PC as of now. I think I'm leaning towards grabbing the 212+ along with a second blade master, and keeping them around 1200 - 1400 RPM, whereas together, they will perform quietly and effectively. Or so I hope.

The 212+ will easily do 4.5GHz if your chip isn't abysmal.

Adding a second fan though, I've never heard of more than a 1-3C difference.

The 6950 @40% will be louder than the 212+ at least my reference 6950's at 40% were.

Well I will be cooling a 3570k, which runs with less power than a 2500k, so in theory, it should run cooler. Should I bother the $11 for the second fan? If not I can place the difference between the price of the 212+ and the D14 into new case fans. I'm still running the stock corsair fans in all spots of my 650D. I'm thinking 2 Cougar 140mm fans for the top for silence and better air movement than the 200mm. The only problem is I only have 1 intake spot, though it is a 200mm.

EDIT: I like the cougar fan designs, and I'd have $58 in difference to spend, so I could grab 3 of the 120mm fans, and replace the 200mm fan on top with two, and the 120mm fan in back with the third. Theyre the only pwm fans that I can find that are quiet, look nice, and perform well.

Look at the Xigmatek Gaia, Gelid Tranquillo, or Zalman CNPS10X Performa instead of the 212 Plus or Evo then. They're roughly the same level of cooling, but they're quieter.

I might consider the Gaia. Thanks for everyone's advice.

Yet another edit...: Any recommendations for the best TIM?
