So, I'm doing my first ever build and I'm super excited, I read many reviews on swiftech's h220 liquid cooler and was extremely impressed by it. I'm ordering my parts online and the only website to sell the H220 is NCIX (I'm in Canada) but they are sold out until the end of April, the thing is, I could pre-order it now, but I don't want to use a stock cooler until then.
I was thinking of the Noctua NH D-14 but, at that price, I know it'd be silly to buy it, then buy the h220 (I'm not one to throw money like that). I was also thinking of going with the cheaper EVO 212 since I heard great things about it for the low price, would it do well with an overclocked i5 3570k?
I know these types of "What should I do?" questions are annoying, but I'm just looking for suggestions and would be grateful for help.
TL;DR: Wait for the Swiftech H220? Forget about the H220 and buy something else (Noctua NH-D14 perhaps)? Or buy the cheaper EVO 212 and use it until the H220 becomes available?
I truly appreciate any help you guys throw my way.
Edit: I also forgot to mention, I'm a little worried about the size and weight of the NH D14 and what it could do to my motherboard, do you guys think this is an issue?
