Cooling solution for 3570k and Cooler Master question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm looking for a budget air cooling solution for my G1 Sniper M3 (micro-ATX) board with i5-3570k.
I currently run at stock speed with stock cooler and I'm a bit confused... I removed this kit: Hyper TX3 (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6602) from my old computer, where it was happily working with Core2Duo 8200. I have no idea whether it's usable for socket 1155 or not (there is a lot of misinformation around the web) and if it would be a good idea to use it with my i5-3570k?

If not, can you advise which kit to get? I don't want to spend much as I don't plan any extreme overclocking (4.4-4.5 GHz is max). I see there are a lot of versions of Cooler Master kits, like Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo etc... Which one to get?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Try out the TX3 first and if it doesnt go well then buy a 212 Plus.

The Evo is the newer version of the 212 Plus. The Evo is slightly better. I'm pretty sure both of them will work well for that overclock. You can get the 212 Plus for $20 after rebate.

OK, an update. It turned out that Hyper TX3 is NOT compatible with socket 1155 (or at least mine was not). I bought Hyper 212 Evo and installed it without problems. I'm happy with it, temperatures @ idle oscillate around 45 degrees C, I haven't done any serious OC yet.
I have a question though: you can attach 2nd fan to Evo (pulling hot air from the radiator towards the case back) - is it worth it? Currently I have 1 fan installed, pushing cool air towards the radiator but I could attach another one - the one I have left from Hyper TX3. The question is - should I do it or just leave it as is?

You should overclock your CPU and stress test while monitoring temps. Then do the same with the second fan.
I have two blade master fans on my hyper 212 plus. The most a second fan will do is lower temps 1-2C. That was a good enough reason for me. :-)
