hello i'm trying to find a good heatsink for my i5 2500k, i want my rig to be 35c on idle and 50c to 60c when playing games on high settings, i don't really plan on overclocking but if i do then i would only set it to 3.7 GHz, anyways i narrowed my search down to two choices the cooler master hyper 212 EVO and the Noctua NH-U9B SE2. which one do you think is the best ?

Well the 212 evo is $30 and the noctua 60. The 212 has 120mm fan and the noctua has twin 92mm.

I'd go witht he 212 evo and buy an extra fan for the push pull configuartion. Your temps will be right where you want them, even when over clocked.
