    Toms Hardware did a test of 10 socket 1156 cpu coolers


    There are plenty others out there - I'm sure - but here's a benchmarked comparison of the 10 listed above.

    i have it

    my CPU (E6400 stock 2.13GHz Overclocked to 3.0GHz) is running 33 degrees idle and 44 degrees load (ambient 25)

    pretty good...

    gonna see how it works on a i5 system though...

    it works better for lower heat applications, and its also very dependant on how you put the thermal paste...

    this review though shows that it beats out a prolimatech (until max oc is reached)

    i really think if you can put the thermal paste on the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus properly, you will get good temps (as i have)
