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


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

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. ;)
