i5 2500k ~50-70 cooler help?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My first post here, so yay!

So ive got the i5 2500k OCd to 4.0 on stock, but im looking to go a little higher, and also much lower temps than this
possibly 4.5-4.8 ish?
So ive been looking at the:

-Thermaltake frio
-Cooler Master V6 GT
-Xigmatek Dark Knight

I would straight up get the dark knight for its cheapness, but is it enough?

And also, I own an Antec 900 two and I have 2 sticks of Ripjaw X series, will they fit in my case?

Lastly, where should the heatsink fan be pointing to? Rear fan, Top fan, Ram? Just asking because I've seen them all on youtube, although pointing towards the ram would probly mess up the front-back airflow of the antec 900

Personally if I had to choose from those, I'd take the Dark Knight.
Although there are better coolers, it is pretty good for its value.

Not sure about the RAM, but if only the fan is getting in the way, you can just raise it by a bit.

I've always had my HS fan point to the back even though I have a top fan also.
TBH there isn't that big of a difference either way it is installed
