Thats not a 280x... thats a 280... "x-edition".... Probably the most vile of misnomers ever. How they can get away with that is mind boggling.
At least he got a proper motherboard that will get him some real use out of that 8120. He can overclock the **** of out of it now.
H50/55/60's have their purpose, its not intended for overclocking. Im going to be getting one for my HTPC, the damn stock cooler is crap, and the case wont fit anything like a CM212
No kidding? X edition 280? That's vicious mislabelling. I had no idea such a beast existed.
Also, the H60 may have it's purpose, but I'm not paying $60 to get "not even Hyper 212 on a good day" performance (in CDN funds). I'd rather get a quiet replacement like one of Noctua's "lay flat" type coolers. Them thangs is quiet as heck. Less costly than the H60 too. And I dare say a little more classy looking with their horse poo and hay color scheme.
