Corsair H60 vs. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at getting a new CPU cooler to replace the stock cooler that came with my i5-3570K. I have been for a while planning on the 212 EVO, however, a friend has a refurbished but unopened H60 for $30. Which one is best? I plan on overclocking basically as high as safely possible.

I would go with the 212 if you have the space. I personally wouldn't trust a refurbished AIO. It just...Bugs me.

Just thought I would update that, after further research, I went with the 212 EVO. Thanks, Ig!

As a Corsair fan I would suggest the H60 but, as it truly is, Cooler Master it meant for exactly what it says. They cool like heck for cheap. (And the fan on the Corsair is not quiet!)

I've heard that the H60 stock fan is fine.
The fan is PWM with max 1700 rpm.
It could be loud at higher speed.

I would say that the H70 comes with louder fans.
They're 3-pin fans with two speeds 1600 rpm - 2000 rpm.

The Evo stock fan isn't quiet at higher speeds.

AIO/CLC whatever you call them I call them are not as good as top air coolers at this time.
Quality water cooling system will cost £120-150+ and are component kits, not closed loop.

Tw33k compared TC14PE, Silver Arrow SB-E and H100. I do know heused 4x UK-3000's on H100 but not sure what the combo was on air coolers.. I assume only 2x UK-3000's (one on each end) and either empty or stock fan in middle. Either way the air coolers were handicapped with 120mm fans as they are designed for 140/150mm fans.

Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E / Extreme compared to Corsair H100 the SA SB-E Extreme was 7c cooler than H100 and 8c cooler than SA-SBE and only 1dBA louder than H100 wink.gif
i7 3820 @4.75GHz
Temperature is delta.

H100 . . . . . . . . 41c 2500rpm. . . . . . . . 55dBA 2
SA SB-E . . . . . . 42c 1100rpm & 1300rpm 38dBA TY-150 & TY-141
SA SB-E Extreme 34c 2500rpm. . . . . . . . 56dBA 2x TY-143
