Hello everyone. As you can see in my sig rig I'm building my SB build in early May. As for cooler I had my mind set on the Corsair H70, but from looking at reviews and reading replies it won't be great for maintaining decent temperatures after a decent overclock.
Can anyone recommend me a great air cooler that will be able to handle an i7-2600k for 24/7 use? I will be overclocking to 4.0ghz+, depending on how far I can go. It also needs to be able to fit in the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe LGA 1155 motherboard. The heatsinks are fairly large on the board.
Budget for a cooler? I'm not interested in spending more than $70-100.
**This is still a budget build in a sense, water cooling is out of the question**
Honestly, if you want to run 4.8+ 24/7, I would highly recommend the Rasa RS240 kit. It will run at least 10 degrees cooler than the h70. Of course you will need a case that can fit a dual radiator. Regardless of what some people are saying, these chips do get hot - especially with AVX. So buy a really good cooler - "any cooler" just isn't going to cut it.
