Not happy with my 212 Evo. Should I get an Kuhler 620 for $35 or a V6 GT?

Anyone know about my cooler? It seems a little high, considering the Phanteks cooler is supposed to be one of the best air cooler on the market.

The comparisons that people are making here are pretty pointless. You simply cannot directly compare absolute temperatures with different processors running at different frequencies at different voltages with different case airflow in different ambient temperatures.

This... but I'm still calling BS on the 2500k/4.5Ghz maxing at 39c under load. Should be around 60c in the vast majority of typical setups.

It is interesting to see how other peoples set ups fair, though.
Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

The problem is when you start drawing conclusions from other people's setups.

"Oh no, that person has lower idle temps than me, I need a new cooler!"

Would you agree that TC's idle temps are unusual though?

Could be a bad mount, or just really high ambients. My point is that you simply don't know without more information.
