Default From stock Intel cooler to Corsair H70 on p8p67pro with Intel 2500K

15'C cooler
OC'd to 4.6 GHz stable.

That's a win!

Good to hear, though that should be expected to when switching from Intel's crappy stock to some real after market heat sinks. Kipper is correct, temperatures under load is what you really want to see the difference then idle.

Wow, it looks I really have to replace my Intel's stock cooler to the corsair H70. Btw, I don't know if I should buy the H70 or the expensive one, the H100.

If you have room for the H100's radiator then it would definitely be the best choice.

Oh forgot that it has that "XL radiator" :/
But I can mount it out of the case, right?
My case has that rubber holes in the back, besides the case is small :P

Thats 15'C cool idle (60C -> 45C)

Under heavy load (Handbrake) I haven't seen it go above 61 yet.

I'd take the H60 over the H70 as it works just as well and doesn't take up near as much room and uses corsairs new pump

Something does sound off, shouldn't be idling at 60C with the stock cooler, or around 40C with his after market. When i had a CM 212+ installed i'd idle in the 30s and that has less coolant power then his LQ.
