So i am kinda stuck as to what to get for my ivy bridge (3770K) build. I have a zalman Z11 case and i am getting the Gigabyte Z77 UD5H mobo. I need help on choosing between these three cpu coolers. CM212+ is around $20-$30. CM212 evo is around $35 and Thermalright TS140 is $50 shipped. What do you guys think? I will be overclocking the ivybridge.

well, the TS140 is obviously better, but also more expensive, so it depends on what you wanna pay wink.gif
The direct competition for the 212 would be the TS120 btw.
Personally i would get the TS140 without a doubt.

as you can see, its's pretty much up there with the best, and it's VERY quiet, too...

Got the TS140 for $55. Damn taxes and shipping. Anyone know why newegg isn't carrying the popular thermalright products?
