Which cooler to choose

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I’m planning to change my air cooler, and not sure which to choose out of the two , both are similar price and I know Hyper 212 have really good reputation, not sure about other one, but he will fit my black/green build.

Both are brand new from Amazon, and thx buddy

I think you miss understood there is a new 212 from CM and there is the old 212 from CM also but the difference is the old one sucks more. Even if its the new 1 both of them (new 212 and 34) is in marginal difference.

They're similar. 

What system are you planning to use the cooler in?

I’d go for the Arctic Freezer 33, has great reviews. However I recommend saving up some more and getting a Noctua NH D15.

Thx for advice but Noctua is quite expensive and for my cpu (i5 2400) which I cant even overclock is a bit overkill imo , any of the two above are adequate for this cpu and I’m going after look as well (black green build)
