    Need help choosing between these 2 it's for Q8400 and i'm going to try and pull as much mhz as possible for this CPU (aimed is 4ghz not more not less but if i can't reach that much oh well) and which is sufficient to cool this CPU during prime95 testing? :)

    I'm getting really impatient now with TPC 800 coming to europe it's gonna get shipped to here in like month and half i don't know if i can wait this long it's getting hot outside... So i don't know if 212 EVO can cool Q8400 on 1.4volts Bellow 60c on full load?

    Hyper 212+ is a great cooler for the price and the Hyper 212 Evo is a newer revision. Without posting reviews i can tell you it would cool a Q8400 adequately. The Evo doesn't have gaps between the heatpipes like the + does and the Evo'f fan pushes more air.

    are you guys sure it's going to be able to cool Q8400 @ 4ghz with like 1.35v or 1.4v?
    PS: i'd rather buy TPC 812 but it's coming here in 2 months and i cba wait that long i'm impatient guy :/

    I was thinking of getting TT frio but thats like 55 euros and i'm not sure there are any in stock here atm how better is frio to 212 EVO and if 212 EVO is sufficient please say so now before i accidently buy frio and find out that it's overkill in cooling Q8400 and feel like damn i wasted money :D

    212 Evo should be great. Buy it and a second fan for it and you'll be set. :D

    aight thanks for ending my suffering for searching adequate cooler for OCing Q8400 retaining normal temps of 50-60c max :D... Can't wait to buy it and test this CPU if it can run at 4ghz :D

    I've got the 212 plus on both of my 2500k's @4.7 ghz crunching 100% 24/7 and it cools them great. I'd spend less and get the 212 evo. :toast: Just buy better fans and push/pull. :toast:

    EDIT: had to double check i had it on both... hehehe

    yeah exactly what i was thinkin if it's keeping temps in normal workin temp margin few temps lower for 30e or so more is kind of waste of money... So 1 more CM 212 EVO is gonna get adopted today and will get slapped with additional fan :D
