FX-8350 and Hyper 212 Evo 1600 RPM

Hello. I'm replacing the stock cooler on my AMD FX-8350 @ 4GHz to Hyper 212 Evo.
I missed a slight detail though - the part number - I wanted 2000 RPM and didn't know there even existed a 1600 RPM version, which I purchased by mistake.

I use my PC for various tasks, including data generation, computing, virtualization, RDP and gaming, often all simultaneously, so the utilization usually will hang around 80-90%.
Also, planning to overclock to 4.4GHz soon-ish.

The question is: Is 1600 RPM going to be enough to keep the CPU and core temps below 60C in decent ambient temps, or should I replace it with 2000 RPM model?

The case is Zalman Z3 Plus, the ambient temps are good and the air circulation is proper.

Thanks!

  1. run prime 95 for 10 min under full cpu stress and watch your cpu temps. after 10 min will have the same temp area. as an owner of a 8350 I would suggest a AIO liquid cooler though if you really plan to run the cpu at 100% load for long periods of time at overclock. I use a corsair h105 and it needs to run at 80% speed with my cpu at 100% load... I honestly don't see any air cooler support long periods of time at 100% load while staying under 60c long term limit amd recommends.
  2. Thanks, but I need to know at least what to expect before I unbox it.

    No budget currently for liquid AIO, but then, it's a similar Corsair I was going to get.
    Mind, I am not overclocking yet. The CPU is stable with stock cooler at about 50% load of random data computing (math and sorting), at 62-64C.

    I was hoping to get up to 80-90% (fluctuating) at 61C. Does it sound achievable with this 1600RPM cooler?
