good HDT guide, as well as good methods for all coolers

Just watched the CM212 video on newegg.. that is SO sweet you can mount just about any 120mm fan to the Heatsink..

You're right c00lkatz, I should be going with the cheapest solution. But the 212 is a very attractive solution! Also, are there any guides on how to apply TIM to the 212? I'll do a forum search quick. Also, should you apply TIM to the HS AND the CPU itself? Or is that overkill?
I applied some TIM to the heatsink and rubbed it into the spaces between the heatpipes with a coffee filter. I did the same thing to the CPU to fill in the microscopic valleys, essentially "tinting" the CPU.
Afterwards, I did the dot in the middle of the CPU method.

Thanks man! I think this is a pretty good idea.

Thanks, Seen this before. Very good guide. But the 212 differs from that HPD that they used. I believe the 212 has more pipes, therefore applying the time in the 2 line method there, would probably best be done to one of the actual pipes on the cm 212.

yeah, that was just a guideline. Since there are 4 pipes a dot on the 3 pieces of metal between the pipes would probably offer nice coverage, but definitely make sure the gaps next to the pipe are filled

Hair dryer can work. I used a hair dryer to heat up the backplate/adhesive on my Dark Knight. Then I got a plastic credit card to pry underneath the backplate/adhesive. It is a PITA for sure.
