Hyper 212 evo on i5 4460 worth it?

I plan to play GTA V at 1080p, max setting.

i5 4460 + GTX 970

Will the difference in temps between the stock and the aftermarket cooler help maintain performance or will it be the same even if the cpu is 70 degrees or 90?

Noise Isn't an issue or price of cooler.

  1. You should never run that CPU over 70C I belive Intel says the safe limit is 65C.
    Depending on your case cooling it should be fine with the stock cooler.
    The hyper 212 will keep it cooler and generate less noise.
  2. Hyper 212 evo is a cheap and worthy alternative to the stock heatsink provided by Intel. If you plan on doing ANY hard gaming then yes, it is a good idea to get a better cooler than the stock one. Remember, heat kills. Even if your processor doesn't overheat, the higher you run the temp, the shorter the life of the cpu.
