CPU Cooler for 3k

Myth

Cyborg Agent
I am looking for a cpu cooler with a budget of around 3k.

This limit is flexible to an extent if I am convinced with proper data/reviews.

My current preference is a CM Hyper 212 Evo + CM 90cfm fan (push pull). Any new option should perform better than this.

The budget can be totally ignored if a noctua nh u12p se2 is available for purchasing now. :razz:

System config is given below. Consider case width(cooler height) and placement in matx mobo.

Other thoughts: Purchasing a Sapphre 7950 vapor-x + tx650v2 + this cpu cooler within 30k.

BMG ftw!!
Nothing can match Hyper 212 EVO + CM 90cfm (or xtra-flo) push pull.
There is no other alternate with same performance.

^^ Not even the higher priced models ?
Eg.
Thermalright Venomous X ( + cost of 2 fans *sigh* )
Cooler Master Hyper 412 Slim
Corsair A70

btw
the situation with the Indian distributor is a bit difficult. We are working on improving the situation soon - Noctua support team

A little more wouldn't hurt. :razz:
How is your system running ? Oced ? Temps, OCed and stock?

My system is fine.
No OC yet. Not needed (And actually I am a lil scared to overclock on the GS600 :p).
Added a couple of 120mm 90cfm cm fans (intake).
Temps are 22-30 idle, maxed out at 48-50c after playing max payne 3 for 1 hr for the CPU. Need to check the GPU though.

The gs600 can easily handle that.
Tempting :p

My idle temps are 35-40 :(
Mine is at stock. And the ambient temps helps I guess.
One wired thing about the temps, one core always run hotter than the other 3 (like 21,24,25 and 32)

Btw, when are you getting the SMPS? What is in store for your CM xtreme power?
I have a friend who is also using the same SMPS. I have talked him to get a new one :p

Checked the GPU temps at idle, hwinfo showing two temps, temp1 = 32 and temp2 = 29

I will get the 3 items this weekend. The CM extreme will serve as backup.
The old nvdia card will be experimental (read hybrid physx).

I wonder what is the complication :rolleyes: *itwares pushing deepcool* :razz:

The markets are running dry of noctua products as per Vedant. And nobody has an idea why.
