BEST COOLER FOR CPU? i5 3570k

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I have a intel 3570k motherboard with a z77 extreme3 motherboard.

I want to be able to overclock to 3.8-4.0 without any heat issues.

What is the best cooler (liquid, or standard aftermarket)

This is what im thinking of getting:

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099


I want my computer to be safe and cool.

*QUESTIONS* Please read
By the way if needed this is my mobo and case

CASE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119216&Tpk=cm%20690 (WILL THIS WORK WITH THE h100 if this were to be my choice?) fit/etc
MOTHEBOARD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157330 (Will i have enough fan connectors and if it will work?)


By the way. I am also trying to get a inside cooler (on the bottom) if you can recommend any of that that would be cool as well biggrin.gif
Just want this computer to be cool. My maximum budget for the CPU cooler is 100$ and for a regular fan cooler any price range.

The h100 is great. Wouldn't have an issue getting it to your desired clocks. The downside on the h100 is the possible pump noises. But corsair is great with their RMAs.

But the cooler master is a much cheaper solution and it would also get your your 3.8-4.0 with no issues.

That's a weak overclock, bud. Your CPU automatically goes to 3.8ghz when you load it. I would do at least 4.2ghz.

Anyways, just get the Hyper 212 Plus. You're doing a small overclock (even 4.2ghz is small) and you'll be able to cool it no problem. The H100 is completely unneccesary for what you want to do. If you want to ever go above 4.0ghz, get the Noctua NH-D14 or H100. They're basically hand and hand. Don't just get the H100 cause it looks cool.

Conclusion - You're wasting your money if you get it if you only do that tiny overclock. Save yourself a boat load of money and get the Hyper 212 Plus..

SIgnificantly better than the Hyper 212 while being in the same ballpark in terms of price

So your saying that the 3570k is at 3.4GHZ but is automaticly loaded to 3.8GHZ? If i do get the hyper 212+ Will that be able to go to 4.2 easily (4.6 since you told me that it increases it)

The term "Best" is a highly subjective term. In what category would you like the cooler to be "Best" in?

Do you want the best cooler for a silent PC, the best performing cooler in terms of heat dissipation and overclocking, or do you want the best cooler in terms of cost/performance ratio?

Yes there's thing thing called turbo. If you look on the box it says 3.4ghz (3.8ghz) I think thats what it says. You will easily be able to do 4.2ghz with the Hyper 212 +.

Also, It wouldn't be 4.6ghz. When you manually set it above it's turbo, it doesn't increase. If you set it to 4.2ghz, it will be 4.2ghz. If you set it to 3.8ghz, it will be 3.8ghz.
