i5 2500K Cooling

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to overclock my i5 to 5Ghz stable, what would you recommend on cooling, I have looked at the h80 because I really don't want to spend more than $100

and suggestions?

Dont waste your money on the H series corsair coolers, I used to own the H100 and it could just manage a stable 5ghz overclock on my 2500K,

Get yourself a noctua nh-d14 which performs on par with a H100 but is cheaper, The best value cooling kit right now is the xspc 240 rasa kit, Costs about the same as a H100 but outperforms it by a good margin, If you can afford it then go for this.

Lapped H100 and lapped 2500k should work. Get the SP120's for the fans. SP120 push and scythe slipstreams pull. They're noisy but definitely great cooling.

My H50 maxes my 4.5Ghz 2500k @ 55C and that's a single SP120 in push config... I'd imagine a H100 could easily cool 5Ghz just fine
