Don't think you need a H100 to hit 4GHz on a chip that's 3.6GHz at stock. Hyper 212+ or Evo should do it in my opinion. Obviously H100 if you want to hit max clocks though.

Processor AMD FX-6100 Hex-core, 3.3GHz > Intel Core 2 Duo, Dual-core, 1.6GHz

Memory 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz >  Crucial 3GB DDR3 1066MHz

Graphics Radeon HD7770 + Radeon HD5570 > Intel 3000 Integrated Graphics

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Socket AM3+ > OEM Latitude XT2 Motherboard Socket P

Storage Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA 7200.14 > Samsung 64GB SSD SATA 3Gbps

Power Supply Cooler Master Elite ATX 500W > OEM Dell Power Supply 90W

Case Zalman Z11 Plus 4x 120mm fans, 3x 80mm > OEM Dell Latitude XT Case

:withstupid:

Hyper 212 EVO is more than enough for descent overclocking. You can always add another xtraflo or any other good fan to make it even better.

hyper 212+ is the right choice here, cheap and it cools like a cheaper watercooler

Now exactly. It's way too much inferior than good closed loop water coolers having at least 120mm rad.

But only advantage being it is a greatly valued product..

What's your budget and how long you plan on keeping the build before upgrading? I usually spend extra $ for a component that will carry to a new build eventually.

 

I have a Corsair H60 and paired witha silent Enermax fan I'm very happy with it!

there is the problem of your logic ;P

like i said a CHEAP watercooler

 

the hyper 212 shaved 25c off my cpu and a lower quality watercooler would shave 22c of my cpu, i base my opinion on that.

Just to throw in another product, I personally use a Cool IT ECO ALC which is a liquid cooling solution. I don't use any over clocking but my CPU remains cool despite any gaming or other hardware intensive tasks that I throw at it. I give it a 4/5 stars just because it isn't a revolutionary product that makes my CPU temps ice cold like some really high end professional solutions. And at the same time, it didn't break the bank to use it. ;)
