My stock fan has a couple broken push-pins so it's not entirely secure (plus my heatsink paste looks dried out), and my CPU is reaching 90-95 C while I'm gaming, which I hear is too hot and can cause damage over time. So I'm looking for a new fan...I have an Intel i5-2500k, which I'm told is socket type 1155, and my motherboard is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157304

I was looking at the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, but I'm not certain it'll fit. I don't have a very large case, nor does my mobo seem very big either. So I'm thinking I should go with something smaller? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Alright guys I'll go with the Evo then. I was hesitant cause I only have a mid-tower case but if it'll fit in there it seems like a good fan. Now I just have to try and avoid PC gaming until it gets here so my processor doesn't go over 90 C again.
