I am not going to assume 5c is THE number for everyone. But lets says it is 5c, for the difference between the top air cooler price and the H220, its a fair price ratio IMHO. For a full custom loop, hell no, hence why I am glad I didn't build a custom loop.

Hmm I guess we just have different views on what we consider value for money tongue.gif

You have to remember though that he's comparing high-end air, which is NOT in the £/$40 category. High end air will cost about $80-120, not not far from the price of the H220. In the $40 category you have the CM 212 Evo, NZXT Respire, etc, which won't be nearly as up to snuff on significant overclocks.

A lot of people don't realize that at mild overclocks units like the H100, X60 and H220 don't show their true value. A Hyper 212 is more than enough for someone who only plans to run at 4.3Ghz and use it for gaming and general computing. The H220 and other coolers like it will allow you to push your chip to 4.5Ghz+ and use it for folding or other CPU intense tasks for extended periods.

Does the H220 have pre applied thermal paste? Or do I need to buy some, and if so, which is the best?

Comes with TIM, but it is not pre-applied.
