    H60 or H80, which is adequate?

    Hello Hexus, this is my first thread and im building a pc for the first time and have a few questions. One of them being whether or not a H60 will be enough to cool an overclocked i5 2500k and whether or not getting an H80 instead will show a reasonable temp. drop for the money, thank you in advance. And yes i've googled but cant find any tests that include both of them on similar hardware.

    I dont think the h80 is worth the extra money, but I dont think the h60 is that good anyway. I would get an Antec Kuhler 620 review: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...ooler_review/3

    Its quiet, cool, and many people reach 4.5ghz so I think its the best for the price.

    that Antec Kuhler 620 is blatantly made by the people who make corsairs, looks like a sticker swap and maybe a different spec fan

    Are you sure there won't be any differences in build quality? Or is that what corsair would like me to think.
