Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO on a i7 4790K?
Yes, a little bit. But if you can a Cryorig H7 is a better choice for a slightly higher price unless it's unavailable for you.
Yes, but better coolers exist, like the tx3, T4, H7, and any decent liquid cooler
I wouldn't call the TX3 or the T4 better coolers than the Evo 212...
256 christian would tell a different tale
Unless the person has proof of what he says, then how do you know what he says is true?
I don't have proof for things I don't think. (cough)
So are you saying you never said the the TX3 and T4 is better than the EVO?
Is 256 christian my evil twin?
Crap. Messed up the name.
No, i believe your evil twin is 666christian
The T4 performs the same as the 212 EVO, but the tx3 is not better at all. It is worse.
So t4 ~ 212 evo > tx3
What about the H7, seems to be nice, but i can never find a price for it.
Well the t4 is not actually as good. It loses in some cases but is equal in others. I would say the 212 is slightly better. It has a WAY better mounting system. The one for the T4 is quite flimsy.
The H7 beats all of these.
Any idea about the price for the h7?
Honestly, just going by the price points for those coolers, but I think they're all in the "budget cooler" range. So while they can handle a light OC on the 4790k, they won't allow as much as a better cooler, such as the Phanteks TC12DX, which is a large single-tower cooler (40~50$ range), and the Phanteks TC14PE and Noctua D14/D15 models, which are large dual tower coolers (70~80$ range), which on the high end, will provide cooling of similar performance to a good 240/280mm radiator AIO cooler (CM Nepton 240, NZXT X61...), while being quieter.
As for liquid cooling, unless you're constrained by fan mounts and case size, such as with a small form factor build, the 120/140mm AIO coolers are not worth the price. Either look at 240/280mm coolers or just go with an air cooler.
