Default Extreme cooling

I have this in my wish list at Newegg. It's $20 off and I have a Xigmatek cube case so there's plenty of room. It'll be for my socket 1155 MoBo.

ARCTIC Freezer 13 CO with 92mm PWM Fan for Continuous Operation - Newegg.com

Y'all using one?

No OC, just because I want it. The CPU is i5-3350P.

Stock cooling will be more than plenty for a chip that can't OC.

Well I'm just saying, there is no point in spending the money and putting that extra weight on your motherboard when the stock cooling solution is sufficient enough. That particular chip doesn't have an IGP so there isn't any extra stuff to cool either.

I say if you really need the extra security then spend a little extra cash and get an H55 or H60. It won't put the extra weight on your motherboard for nothing and will actually provide decent cooling for the money.

How is a little weight gonna hurt my mobo? It has a metal plate underneath and standoffs all around. This has six heat pipes and lots of surface area so how is it crappy?

I know I don't need it but I want it.

The NH14 is only a pound more than this thing and Noctua recommends using it in test benches and removing it when your PC is in transport. The size difference is great but the pound difference not so much. AIO units are getting more popular for a few reasons, and the biggest one is getting that weight off the center of your board. I used to use a TRUE120 for the longest time but never wanted to. Let me reverse that question, how is having a hunk of metal hanging off the center of your motherboard good for it? Look at how video cards sag because of aftermarket heatsinks. Your motherboard is strapped down to your case but has the same amount of pressure put on them.

It is relatively tiny compared to similar sinks in that price range, like the 212 EVO. It has a low RPM 92mm fan that can't be replaced with conventional fans to increase cooling performance. The EVO has a 120mm fan that you can put a Noctua fan on it for maximum silent performance, or something ridiculous like a Scythe Gentle Typhoon. You can also do push pull with it for even better cooling performance.
