So I have a gaming/streaming pc that is extremely bottlenecked by the cpu to begin with, I got most of the parts used and they're great but I have a stock cooler on my cpu (Gross I know) the previous owner never oc'ed it or anything but i'm looking for cooler temps and possibly overclocking it down the road. Which of these two Highly recommended cooler would be best for both lowering my outrageous cpu temps and for possibly a little overclocking as well.

H7 all the way, better cooling and it is smaller.

Thanks, is there anything I should be worried about spacewise with the h7? like bumping ram or anything?

My Evo 212 doesn't block any RAM modules, and since the H7 is smaller, I'd say there won't be any issues.

Alright thanks, was curious because I was going to go with a noctua nh-d14 or d15 if I had a few more bucks and I know those are pretty big and have certain ram that they will interfere with as well as some mobos or video cards

If you are worried about them fitting, just remove the heatsinks.

depends yet again. noctua is no fool in the cooler game. the D14/D15 clear any ram around 40mm tall, like g.skill ripjaws. you can also move the fans up.

The H7 is actually offset from the cpu mount - so it is as they say 'compatible with all memory'. It will not be a problem with memory interference

this is the main advantage the H7 has over the 212 EVO. it was made to have easy ram clearance. coolers like the 212 EVO and Pure Rock will cover half or the whole first ram slot. with most ram kits it's a non issue, but the H7 has no potential issues with ram.

the H7 is better for every build and in general, unless you want a build using parts that say coolermaster on them, then the H7 wouldn't do. the 212 EVO has far better availability than the H7, you can always find mountains of it at any number of stores.

H7 is better, as @GentlemanShark stated it offers better cooling. Also in my opinion looks better

These ******* computer noobs with no knowledge are all wrong the hyper 212 is the best air cooler ever made and bitchslaps the h7.

Everyby with tech knowledge who is credible will say the h7 is cheap Chinese junk.

H7's are better in every way except price. If you ever have to ask, the H7 is the better choice. You won't find them in a store so you'd have to have it shipped online.
