I have Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo for my fx 8350. I want to buy H80i ( my case only supports this) will it worth ? Are there differences in temps ? I will sell my evo also if I buy h80i.

I believe the general consensus is that, for $80 or so, the H80i is not worth the buy. If you're mainly looking to watercool with a closed loop cooler, I would first change cases so you can support a 240mm radiator CLC.

If you're more concerned with temps and your budget is $85, Noctua's NH-D14 might be a nice upgrade from the 212 evo.

agree.. NH-D14 or Silver Arrow will be less pain in the *** and a good upgrade if you cant fit a 240 rad

(look at me saying the same thing as the guy before me, lol)

worthyness is subjective. i would rather have a cool looking, unobstructive h80i for a little bit less performance than a huge heatsink dangling on my mobo covering everything.

that's your opinion. my opinion is that big coolers are the major pain in the rear.

Aye, the distinction between performance vs aesthetics is certainly worth making.

I figured, since the OP made mention of temps, that performance was to be the deciding factor here.
