i5-4590 - How is the stock cooler? Worth it to get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO?

My condo doesn't have central air, so in the summer my office can get a bit warm. The only A/C comes from a huge wall unit in the living room. I'm currently running a dated Phenom 940 with the stock cooler. It never got above 60C in the summer while gaming, but since I'm looking to do a new mobo/cpu build, I figure it's the best time to entertain an aftermarket cooler.

Would the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO produce a noticeable difference in CPU temps? My full size case has excellent cooling, and I'm not looking to overclock the CPU.

I keep hearing that the 212 evo is the best, but please feel free to offer other suggestions.

Thanks!

    There is nothing like Hyper 212 evo being the best, but its a real value for money cooler and it does its job very well.

    As for the other thing in your new build, stock coolers usually run fine and you would only need a aftermarket cooler to Overclock your build.

    Also please state your new CPU/MoBo build so that we can determine if you really need an aftermarket cooler or not. ( usually it depends on the overclock only)

    Hope this helps.
  2. Instead 212 EVO get Raijintek Aidos it is cheaper and performs same as 212 EVO or if you have bigger chase get Raijintek Themis for a bit better performance and silent work.

    Thanks for the input! I will check on these.

    I do have a full size case. Plenty of room.
  5. Well then Raijintek Themis would be perfect fit and low noise solution.

    Okay. 3pc or 4pc? I see 2 options when looking on Newegg.
  7. Can you give me links.

    4pc: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA66Z28G5714

    3pc: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA66Z28G3802

    I see reviews saying these are a lot easier to install than the 212 evo. I would certainly welcome that perk.
  9. Ok i found it.With 4pcs is Themis EVO a bit better version and more fancy one,so if you dont mind sending extra take it, but you rly dont need more then regular Themis or Aidos.And check how much room you have in case for cooler height,better be safe so you dont have to keep case open for cooler to fit.
  10. It is easy to install if you dont have to remove motherboard so if you case have hole where CPU socket is in back when you open panel then it will be easy if not then you will need a bit more work.
