Can it cool a 6600k while playing 1080p games?
Yes but I would recommend the Cryorig M9i for around the same price.
Really? I thought the M9i wasn't that good for cooling.
The m9i is better the the CM 212 Evo plus it's smaller
Same temps for each:
Under AIDA64 with a 4.2 (mild) overclock, it did 1C better.
Scores in the bottom 25% here:
It's pretty quiet though.
Beat the H7 by 6 or so degrees, which is odd since the other test results contradict that:
I'd blame that on reviewer error.
But yeah, the 212 and M9i are $20, so M9i seems like a good pick.
Its about the same as the Evo 212.
As far as I know the M9i has performance comparable to a 212 EVO and is currently less expensive.
