overclock i5 750 arround 3,8 Ghz

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi everyone

I'm looking for a good cooler that would eventually help me bringing my cpu arround 4 Ghz. I'm oriented towards 2 model :
  • Noctua DH14 (arround 75 euros in my country)
  • CM 212 EVO (arround 35 euros)
  • Other models?

I know they're pretty much different in terms of performance, but what i'd like to ask you is if the money for the dh14 would be well spent to reach 3,8 ghz, or if i can achieve that temperature even with just the CM without worring. I have an HAF 932 Adv and my ram is high profile (Corsair Dominator): the RAM height is not a problem since i can detach the cooler from the top of it, and the case has plenty of air flow. Budget max = 80 euros

Tanks you guys!

I was able to get 3.8GHz using a Thermalright MUX 120.

When I was using my 760 with a 212+ (more or less the same as the evo) I topped out around 3.6-3.8GHz (don't remember exactly which, it was awhile ago). I wound up buying the Noctua U12P, a step (or two?) down from the DH14, but still pretty good air cooler. It allowed me to get to 4.1GHz stable although the temps would get to the high 70's/low 80's on P55-GD65 (from what i remember this board was okay for OCing).

If the DH14 is in your budget I would probably get that as it will most likely outlast a few gen's of CPU's unless you go full-blown water cooling.
