CM690II - Intel i5 760 & Hyper 212+

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys and gals
I am experiencing what I think is worrying temps, I have an i5 760 @ 4.1 GHz and a Hyper 212+ with just one stock CM fan on it.
i have the stock blue LED intake in the front of my CM690 and the stock exhaust on the back aswell.

I get about 38-46* C idle and about 62-68* C load, with my GPU (GTX 460) sitting at 30*-40* at all times.
my GPU does feed hot air into my CPU area.

that's the info, now here's the proposed upgrades:
I want to get two Akasa Viper 120mm's for a push/pull on my CPU cooler, and three Xilence Red Wings (one for the front intake, one for the rear exhaust and possibly one for floor intake/ceiling exhaust. Supposedly the Akasa's produce alot of pressure, and that's why I'm thinking of putting them on my Heatsink

would I see a good drop in temps?
and would you all reccomend me some better value fans?

and what are the advantagss of a fan controller? when the fans are just plugged into my mobo, do they just run a high load or will they change speed related to the temperatures it's experiencing?
any help is appreciated

You're at 4.1GHz and load temps of 62-68c, and you're unhappy with those temps?

You're doing just fine. Don't touch a thing. Don't even remount your 212+. Leave everything as it is and feel fortunate.

Sounds about normal to me. If you want less for your temps, install a WC loop.

You could try putting your top fans as intake instead of exhaust, they'll be blowing right on the 212+. Just open some PCI brackets to help the airflow be pushed out by positive air pressure.

Those temps are great. Especially since your GPU dumps hot air, and your using stock fans.

Time to get my 750 up to 4ghz now

All you really should do is if you have a side panel fan set it to exhaust to help with the GPU a bit, and if you have a 120mm fan laying around just stick that on push pull with the cm212.
Your fan probably isn't even running full speed on it so you could just turn that up a little bit too.

Well, that's the thing, when I reseated my cooler, I installed it all and for the next day I got 38-46* idle and 60-70* load, then midday after that I noticed idle was up to 48-54* and load is 65-77*

I would also like to know what kind of temperatures I'd have to reach in order to really do any damage to my system - and whether those fans are suitable for my intentions?


And thanks for the replies so far
