CM 212+ frustrations - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Just make sure the fan is off when securing the RAM, then install the fan. Sounds like you are more concerned about the RAM.

You can put the fan on the other side. Make sure you unscrew the plastic clips and screw it to the other side. That way the fan will pull air through the heatsink and out towards the exhaust fan.

This too, its not gonna hurt your temps any.

Since the 212+ has a loose leaf type mounting bracket, even when bolted down itll still be able to be twisted back and fourth. Mine does this too, but it dosnt make any problems.

Try using mem slots 2+4 instead of 1+3.

That center screw is not threaded dude that's normal. So is the twisting mentioned above

Thanks guys. On first boot last night, the CPU was idling at around 42c in the BIOS, which seems a little high to me?

I don't know for sure, but the room temperature was probably around 75-78 so nothing too drastic. I just expected an idle temp of 30c~.

BIOS isn't idle temps. Boot into windows and let it sit 5-10m for your idle temps.

Ah I did not know that Sitting idle within Windows, I'm seeing the first core at a steady 34c, whereas the others are an average of 30c.

Not very precise (I'm just using the MSI Control Center) - but those temperatures seem much better!

Something that concerns me more is that when I turned it on earlier, I heard a loud pop and some burning smell. The OS was still running fine, I managed to shut it down cleanly. After visually inspecting everything and spreading out the loose PSU cables I turned it back on, ran a few tests (memory, etc.) and all seems to be fine.

Could it be that when I squished all of the loose PSU cables together it caused the PSU to arc? As you can see below, I'm running the TX750v2.

Pop and burning smell is never good. It is hard to say what is the problem because you are saying that everything is running now.

Run it but be careful. Do another visual inspection and make sure everything is connected properly!!!

Yeah, my stomach hit the floor when I heard it. After shutting down I immediately removed both side panels and haven't yet put them back on. Windows has been running fine, as I've just installed the motherboard / video card drivers which required some restarts.

I'll continue to check things over. I want to say that it was bad cable management...?? I folded the loose cables over (as neatly as I could) and put them behind the front fan on the Storm Scout case.
