  1. if not the 212 then do you have any other segestions for one with good cooling and good mounting? prefrably in the same price range.
  2. I have an Intel Core i7-4790 that runs at around 50°C under minimal load (5-10%) but gets up to 90-95°C when gaming, see attached hardware monitor screenshot. I am using the stock intel cooler that came with the CPU and have replace the thermal paste recently. Ambient temp is between 20°C and 25°C. I have 2 120mm intake fans and 1 80mm output fan. Even with the fans manually set to full speed the CPU never drops below about 45°C and under load they are at full anyway. I also have a GTX1070 if that makes a difference, full specs listed below. So my question is, what is the best way to reduce the temp of my CPU? I was looking at an AIO but from what I have seen 1x120mm ones are not good and I can't fit any bigger in. I am also planning on building a completely new system sometime in the next 6-12 months so don’t want to spend too much on this one.
