I heard bad things about this one...some say it's noisy.Anyway,it's watercooling and it's over 50$

I'd go into watercooling with H80 or more,i would not recommend cheap watercooling.I think that under 50$ you better get a beast heatsink!

I'd spend the Money on the EVO and invest in a Pair of Really good Bitfenix Pro fans. Should be more than suffice for your CPU there.

That, or splurging the extra and grabbing one of those new AIO coolers.

Honestly, just get the one of the Hyper 212's and call it a day. You're really not cheaping out by buying one of these, they're seriously great coolers especially for the cost that it is.

Depends on your case, if you only willing to go for air , 212 evo is like best bang for the Buck. Basically if you aaren't going extreme oc, any heatsink in market wouldwork , but the stock fan can be noisy , if you want like stock good fans look on noctua, thermalright or phantek when they are on sale, if you looking for aio kit , saw a 39.99 for zalman 310 aio water kit, very good value already

Indeed - Mine is OCed at 4.0 on air cooling using the stock cooler! Personally I could go do even 4.2, but I would personally go for an AMC of any OC above that..... however, I don't use AUTO settings in bios, I do everything manual, and doing so I could reduce temps. I guess I have a good batch of chips because mine is tweaked at a manual 1.1V and running at 4Ghz stable, I've stressed with AIDA64, and hours of gaming, video encoding, etc, and it's running strong, never exceeding 72C under full load (all cores maxed out to 100%). On auto settings (BIOS) same speed, above 85-87C. Proper case airflow and fans, manual tweaking trial and error.
