I've been wanting to OC my Intel Core i5 750 so I'm looking to buy a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ cooler for it. My question; will it fit in my Thermaltake Armor+ MX case?

Who said you need a special cooler to overclock?

So you're suggesting I OC my CPU to over 1000Mhz+ on a stock cooler? I'm shooting for ~4Ghz.

lol okay guy...

Oh, and to answer your question, basically anyone with a brain unless it's a very small OC.

1st of all, where does it say you were going to overclock to 4.0GHz?

2nd, how much overclocking experience do you have? I've been building computers for over 15 yrs & have been overclocking since the days of the Pentium 1.

3rd, while admittedly I have no experience with the Core-i series, I have regularly overclocked other CPUs, both AMD & Intel, as much as 25-40% (depending on CPU/board combo) using stock cooling. I've never had any problems.

BTW, how the hell can anyone tell you whether a HSF is going to fit in your case or not? Especially since we have no idea of which case you have? Anyone with a brain should be able to tell when they run out of characters in the subject line, don't you think?

I copy and pasted the title from another forum. There was no indication it didn't fit. The case is a Thermaltake Armor+ MX. Now guy, if you can't answer my question, please leave.

If you have never OC'd an i5, why did you even post to begin with? Especially with a question regarding OCing a CPU using a stock cooler on a CPU you have no prior experience with. You obviously have no useful knowledge in this area, so you have no reason to be posting. I mean, you asked me a question that you can't even answer. haha

Second, my level of knowledge regarding overclocking is completely irrelevant considering I didn't ask an overclocking question.

In other words, you're a newb. Because anyone with overclocking experience would just go ahead & do it with the stock heatsink, then monitor the temps to make sure the CPU stays within reasonable limits. I have a novel idea, how about opening the case & taking a few measurements, then googling up the size of the Hyper 212+? Then you decide for yourself whether it will fit or not.

So you don't strain yourself, here you go:

Look how mad it gets. Why are you still posting guy? haha

I did that already, guy. The temps were idling at 70+ degrees Celsius. Are those reasonable temps? Hell no.

If everyone just did everything for themselves, it would kind of defeat the purpose of a discussion forum wouldn't it? As I already stated, stop defiling this thread with your cretinism.

Why don't you stop trolling people on Internet forums and go get an education because you type like a 5th grader.
