Compatible air cooler for i7-4790k

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have built my new PC with i7-4790k processor (Socket LGA 1150) on Asus Z97-A motherboard. I fitted the stock cooler that came with the Intel processor. During idle time, the CPU temperature averaged about 36°C. Is this normal? I plan to do heavy video editing and encoding. I am sure in that case the temperature will go higher. Should I go for an aftermarket CPU cooler? If yes, then which CoolerMaster product is compatible with my CPU and motherboard? I read good reviews about Hyper 212 Evo, but its specifications do not list LGA 1150. Also, does CoolerMaster air coolers come with thermal paste or we need to purchase it separately?

 

By the way, my case is CoolerMaster K380.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Regards

Thank you very much for your reply. I will go for Hyper 212 EVO then.

 

Will it fit in the case CoolerMaster K380?

 

Also, is 36°C normal for a CPU temperature in idle state?

K380 wont be able to fit Hyper 212 EVO inside.

Have you considered the K280 or K282?
