another logic that i can think of by not filling the gaps is that the after applying tim by line method it can find its way up those unfilled gaps.
is there a substantial diff. in temps. you got with and w/o filling the gaps??
reg. the mobo i guess i will only find by putting the cooler on, but yes the M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 has similar distance between cpu socket and ram slots and also that my ram dosent have heat spreaders!
I noticed about 2C difference. But the big change was that the temps between all 4 cores was closer together than the other way.

What do you guys think of the Yate Loon D12SL-12's push-pull setup on the front page of this thread? Would it be better or worse than the stock single fan that comes with the 212 performance and noise wise? I have a red theme going on and think it would look sweet in my case.
A pair of Low Speed Yates would be a LOT quieter than the single Blademaster, but your temps would be several degrees higher. I would go with the Medium Speeds personally. A pair of them should be within a degree or so of the single BladeMaster and considerably quieter.

You may opt for a second stock Blademaster fan though, that way you can control them both w/ PVM. You'll need a 4pin Y-adapter for this, but they are pretty cheap.

Temp wise at full rpm from best to poorest.
2 Hi Speed Yates > 2 BladeMasters > Single Hi Speed Yate > Single BladeMaster > 2 Medium Yates or 2 BladeMasters at 1,600 rpms > > 2 Low Speed Yates. For the most part you'll probably only see 1-2C difference between any jump until you get to the low speed Yates.
As far as sound goes, it would be the reverse order. If you don't OC much then the 2 Low Speed Yates should be okay, but the Mediums give you more leeway. See this thread
for some actual numbers. A Medium Speed Yate should give the same results as a BladeMaster at 1,600 RPMs.
