Hyper 212+ a bad cooler, or TIM bad?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I installed it first on my unlocked AMD 555 X2 unlocked, but the mobo died during install (not my fault, I'm a careful person, it was a cheap board...) then I cleaned it all up and installed it on my E7300. Install was easy, but at stock 2.66GHz, I'm getting up to 53C with an OCCT. I was getting almost similar performance from the stock cooler. Any tips? I've never installed a heatpipe cooler before, but when removed from my AMD, it was nicely spread across the cooler, and applied the same way.

Looking for suggestions as I know this can do better

EDIT: I have the stock fan with a push config porting out the top of my case. 26C case temps 26C ambient.

you're only supposed to apply a pea size dot of the thermal paste onto the CPU, and then with a credit card spread it out, it is supposed to be as thin a layer as possible.

Looking for pics sec..

Try the last method for applying TIM. If the "channels" between heat pipes are sunken in compared to the heat pipes' surface, try to fill those up a bit first so it spreads properly.

THAT's the guide I followed. I'm usin some AS52 but I quickly found out that my FSB on my mobo is getting weaker it'd seem. I can't even get stable at some speeds (temps weren't an issue). I may end up re-using this with some better baste on a chip I can actually make use of.

Look for the hipper club/thread. There is lots of good info on this. Its a great Little cooler. Should not be giving you "bad" temps at all. Not as great as them latest and greatest but supper for the price and 2x better than stock.

Small dot in centre of CPU, then put your sink on, let it spread, remove and check. WAIT this is a 212+, right? Put thin beads of TIM on EACH of the heatpipes before installing, torque down, remove from chip, check the spreadage of the tim, if good, reinstall, and it should work great.

Hyper212+ and bad cooler dont belong in the same sentence.

PS. Ignore the pea or dot advice. As most people say you need to fill in the pipe gaps a bit.

And you probably only need 1 fan on it, the second fan helps make it quieter as you can lower the speeds. 1 fan is plenty for this one.

I got it running ok. It'd seem that the more I handed it, the better it worked. I mean I just kept adding voltage and speed (little at a time, I know how to OC...) and it now sits at 3.5GHz at 58C under load. I kinda forgot AS5 tends to need a burn in before it starts working at it's best too (at least that's my experience with it)
