Windows 10: Looking For Effective Yet Relativly cheap Heatsink

    Looking For Effective Yet Relativly cheap Heatsink


    i have an upcoming PC build that im trying to finilze and refine. and im trying to figure out if the heatsink im currently getting is even worth it.

    this is currently what the build looks like atm


    me and a mate are trying to refine it as best we can. im just wondering how effective the Hyper 212 evo CPU heatsink will cool a i5 8600k.

    really not wanting to add a water cooler as that adds to the budget which is all ready over budget for me. had to sacrifice alot to fit in the i5 8th gen processor.

    any recommendations or advice on this cooler ?? and is anyone able to share some personal experience from using it ?

    btw budget is roughly speaking 530 and possibly 610 - 2 months after Christmas

    I haven't gone to more-expensive coolers but the heatsink/fan combos have been working for me, usually come boxed with the AMD CPUs. Haven't checked if Intel come the same way.

    The Intel K processors don't come with a cooler anymore.

    The 212 EVO should be more than sufficient for the i5-8600K at stock. The only reason you'd want to go to a larger one is if you're going to OC and/or you want to keep the noise levels very low.

    intel k and X upwards from 8th gen processors will no longer come with CPU's. instead they are opting for waterblocks as their new form of cooling now. but for right now its just no heatsink or fan

    i mean there are single waterblocks that i could possible fit in but the pump noise is always a complaint. so thats a no go.. but yeah i have no plans to OC as i done have the available power needed to get it to 5GHz. in which case id rather go with the CM v8 or a dual closed loop water cooling. solution.

    yeah its just stock as well and the turbo clock.

    Water pumps should not make noise.

    What was the brand of the noisy pumps?
