Best fan for i5 3570K - Budget: 50$ - Page 3

post #21 of 49
Hyper 212 $25, or, Hyper 612 $45. These are THE best in their price ranges. After that I wouldn't look at buying anything until I could afford the Phanteks. The Phanteks kick Noctua's butt all day, and looks better.

Hyper 612 is less than 2c cooler than Hyper 212. Definately not worth $20 more money.
Phanteks are only slightly better than Noctua.
If you believe Phanteks is so much better than Noctua give us some proof.

You are on the internet right now, do you own research. Click this thing called google and type "Phanteks Benchmark," and then when you are done with that go back to google and search "Hyper 612 benchmark."

Click a link and read.

I know what I am talking about, so I just gave a credible suggestion. I've owned over 20 heatsinks, built many computers, sat and researched for hours on end. Every time someone ask for help I could spend all day writing a Thesis, compiling benchmarks, and writing rebuttals about their problem, but us much as I would love to help everyone that much, you are not that special and I don't have that much time for you.

Nah you're right, Phanteks is only a little better than Noctua, there isn't a worlds difference.

You made the claim not me. Show proof or be quiet.

not necessarily. Ive run across few test runs (here on the forums) whether which is better with the Hyper212+ or evo. P/p isnt always the best choice. In fact Push wasnt that good either. Pull configuration was the best in those tests and in my own experience. I tried all configurations, and in the end the pull configuration brought temps a good 5-8 degrees lower than the others. but that was with my case. It could be different with other cases.
But i would recommend the hyper212+, for the price and performance. The fan that comes with it works just fine. It can go up to 2000RPM and it still relatively silent. I changed mine out for this dell fan i jacked from an old dell optiplex. Its thicker than most fans, but the blades are sturdy as hell and it spins up to 3500RPM if need be. if im not mistaken it'll push about 150CFM of air at full speeds but i will warn that it does get pretty loud. Think jets. But at lower speeds it runs pretty quiet. You can always find that sweet spot though if you use Speedfan to control it. (usually about 1700-2200RPM)

So should I take the evo or the plus?

I would honestly say unless you are spending the big bucks for the big boys like the phantek, thermalright or noctua offerings just get the hyper 212+.

All others are pretty much a step below these, but imo its not worth spending $45 for a extra 2c, if you really want better performance buy the best ones or just simply get the hyper 212+ and be done with it.

I have a frio with a pair of Corsair Vengeance RAM with the tall heat spreaders and it fits just fine. If you stick to 120x25mm fans then there is absolutely no problem. Granted I only have 2 sticks, but when I was playing around with my fan setup earlier today I believe you could fit 4 sticks of tall RAM no problem.

Now the thing with the frio that surprised was the noise. I was thinking that 62dBA was just exaggerated in reviews... I was wrong. These things on max rpm's sound like a vacuum. It cools like a champ and is right up there with the twin stack coolers, but is loud as hell. So I would only recommend this heatsink if you have a fan controller where you can easily adjust the fans, or just get pwm fans. I ended up opting for a set of ap-15's during that ncix sale for the ap-15's. I think its still going on if anyone is interested.

Now to your dilemma with the CM 212's. The EVO is slightly better performance wise if set up with blademasters than the 212+ (the EVO comes default with some other fan whos name escapes me ATM). But that would mean having to invest another $10 for a fan. So now you have to decide what your optimum balance of performance and price is. We can't really decide that for you.

Good Luck! thumb.gif

get the frio, people he's on a budget, and depending on the amount he decides to oc, if it's a mild oc, the frio will do more than he needs.

I have one of my friend's rigs that I built running 4.5ghz on the i5 3570k on my old used hyper212+ just fine with just one blademaster fan
