Yikes, Micro Center has a pretty underwhelming selection of coolers, if you're set on buying there, 212 EVO it is.

I was thinking of the corsair H115i

You just went from a $30 to a $130 cooler, what budget are you working with exactly?

And I generally won't recommend buying CLC's. They're too expensive for the performance they offer and generally are louder than similar performing air coolers and proper AIO's.

Edit: And what case do you have?

I might be burned at the stake for this but 6700k all the way, I had a 6600k before and for example in division and other games my fps was all over the place with the i5 but stable with the i7 and if its not that much more grab the i7 and enjoy, also my 6600k struggled with 4.6 but my i7 does 4.8 no problems but that's just silicon lottery.

most of that testing are either on gpu bound,single player or games dont need more than 4c, meaningless test

for example dragon age inqusiiton a known game with proper multithreading for CPU has worse perf with HT rolleyes.gif

First your post has nothing to do with HT, second i see no freaking difference.

yeah, the majority of the games...and HT to benefit to future games is pure speculation, if i needed to rely on cores for gaming, i would buy a 6 or 8 cores and wouldn't bother with that annoying HT.

Majority of games doesnt mean HT will reduce performance, instead it allow to run more background tasks withuout performance loss, and it isnt speculation is the trend has been following since 2011 , even for games that dont use all 8t on CPU bound scenarios HT helps

any way the difference between the i7 quad core and the i7 8-core doesnt warrant a proper value for its performance/price

There isa huge difference with a Haswell CPU with HT beating a Skylake CPU w/o HT rolleyes.gif
