So guys, what makes a good HS/F for the i5-3570 (non-K)?

I have a Xigmatek Gigas cube case which is very roomy and the motherboard lies flat on the bottom so the weight shouldn't be a problem.

I have my CPU turbo-locked at 3.8 Ghz on all cores and the highest temp were 52C (core 1). No cause for alarm right? I have the alarm set at 60C in the BIOS just in case.

Would like to cool the CPU more so what your favorites? My case is set up for water cooling but not interested in that.

Gday Brazened.

No, that's a great temp, double check temps by using a second monitoring program. The TJMax is 105C, > https://www.kernel.o.../hwmon/coretemp
I would leave well alone and be happy, also remember that were the CPU is supplied with a cooling solution, using an after market cooler will void you warranty, no clam if damage occurs.
If you do decide to fit an alternative, > Noctua, > http://www.tomshardw...3-max,3607.html

Hmm... I haven't thought about the warranty part. Thanks for the heads up.
