Default CPU cooler

Hey guys,

I got the evga x58 3x sli motherboard (132-BL-E758-A1) and i need a cpu cooler.
Which is a better cpu cooler for i7 920, the CM hyper 212 plus or the CM Hyper N 520?
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-GP 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Intel Core i7 compatible Hyper N 520 RR-920-N520-GP 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Please keep in mind it needs to fit the evga x58 3x sli motherboard just mentioned.

Thank you.

I would strongly suggest the 212+ unless you have a small case.

I've got some images in here... Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus AMD Installation & Clearance if you want to judge the clearance yourself. (not the same motherboard).

check out frostytech for the hyper 212 FrostyTech - Best Heat Sinks & PC Cooling Reviews

I don't see the n520 on the temp list here Coolermaster Intel LGA775 Final Heatsink Temperature Comparisons - Hyper 212 Plus FrostyTech Review

But there a good review here Cooler Master Hyper N520 CPU Cooler Review
Well after checking it out for temps it seems that the hyper 212 is better

Frosty-tech is a joke.
