Why not buy a hyper 212+? The stock heatsink is terrible.

First problem: it's not going full speed. This fan is supposed to go to 6500 rpm. It's loud, but it works, and will cool up to 3.6 Ghz (C2) or maybe 3.7 on a C3. Take the fan off the sink and make sure that little thermistor sticking out of the motor is in the airstream. Sometimes they're bent down and it won't go over 4000 that way. Fix it and it's the hot air dryer it was born to be.

Second problem: AVC doesn't know how to make this thing flat. Mine was so crooked it only touched 2 corners of the CPU and left the rest to hopes and dreams. Took me hours of lapping to make it right. Of course, if you want to RMA, don't do this because AMD will say "haha nice heatsink, have it back"

Your vcore is fine. Mine will hold the CPU temp at 58C (core 60C) at 6500 rpm, in prime95, at 3.6GHz/1.40v, with cpu-nb at 2400mhz/1.20v, with an ambient about 75 degrees F.

I switched to the H50 because of noise, mainly. Didn't get much more for an overclock and listening to that 6500 rpm whine all.day.and.all.night while running F@H was NOT going to happen!!!

I have no idea what you're talking about with the little thing on the fan I have to lift up. Are there any pictures out there?

If your not overclocking and your not worried about buying a new cooler for the CPU, 72'c is fine. The chip isn't just about to die. Most likely it wont die for 10 years with the same cooling. Anyway, if it does die within 3 years, just send it back to AMD for an RMA and you'l be sorted.

Here's AMD's recommended thermal compound:

When the fan itself is removed from the heatsink (there are snap tabs holding it on, so it's easy to put back together), there's a tiny ceramic disc-looking thing on the exhaust side of the fan motor. It looks like a capacitor, but it's a thermal probe. Really out of place too- everything else is under the plastic but this thing is kinda sticking out there.

For some reason this thermistor really needs to be in the airflow. Once I put it there my fan went from 4100 rpm at load to about 6450. Be careful though, those wires that hold it are TINY. Bend carefully.

Then use your mobo's fan management to bring it down to something tolerable when the CPU's idling about.

Coming from a user which had the stock cooler. Don't even bother with it. I had it, high RPM and it did squat. The heatsink just sucks. No thermal paste is going to help you.

Since i got the 212+, i've forgotten about temps, sensors and even noise.

After it was lapped it matched the performance of my lapped XP-120. However, that's not saying a whole lot on this thing. It was the noisiest thing I'd ever heard in a computer for sure.

If you only stress it now and then, it's a usable heatsink that can handle a deneb at 1.4v no problem. If you're gonna run flat out for longer than a few minutes at a time, I'd recommend something quieter as well.
