distilled water. Really easy....

Water scares me. This build needs to last me 3-4 years and I honestly cant afford 1 little drop of water killing my system.

When I milkyway@home with my 2500k @ 4.8ghz 1.4 vcore my cpu reaches around the 70 degree mark with the 212+. I won't even consider taking it to 5.3 @1.52 which it will do with this cooler.\

I have the same cooler but a 3570K, mine reaches 98 on burn test (not load, not prime but burn test) @ 4.8Ghz lol. But at 4.6Ghz its around 77 degrees, Hyper 212+ / Evo are good for his desired clocks tho if money is no object ofcourse noctua 14s etc are better options, would shave off couple more degrees for extreme clocks.

Did you know distilled water pulls metal from whatever it is running it to replace trace minerals? Check out any automated carwash. All of final spotless rinse hardware is plastic. wink.gif And I now automobile coolant is best used with distilled water.. Key words being "used with"

I'm aware that the noctua is the best air cooler on the market, and after i decide on my monitor(if i dont have to go with a more expensive BenQ) i'll buy the noctua. But as it stands right now i would just like to have more options just incase i need the money else where. Also i hear the noctua would be a problem with 4 ram sticks is this right?

Cool. Been water cooling with same WC loop for about a year now. Have not had any trouble. Had distilled water spill onto my mobo and cards with no issues. Pretty sure the components that the system is made out of help with negating the water from pulling minerals........

As for automobile coolant.... Are you referring to anti freeze? All of my vehicles use water. I make sure to have a good anti freeze mix in there during the winter. Perhaps I am missing your point.... biggrin.gif

At 4.2-4.5 a 212+ is fine. Don't spend money you don't have to.

Edit: To my knowledge, no. AFAIK the 212+ evo is the best cooler at that price range.

I second the CM hyper 212+. I did a lot of research before my newest build. I looked at quite a few different coolers. I finally decided to just go with the CM 212. I used 1 in my previous build and knew it worked great but I wasn't too sure how it would do with the i5 2500k. I've had this CPU as high as 4.7 Ghz and temps were great. I've been really happy with it. For the price you can't beat it.
