Cooler Master 212+ Question

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I just recently installed my new Cooler Master 212+ into my computer case. The cooling temps via CoreTemp are about the same as the stock cooler (amd x4 3.2ghz) I am not overclocking. So, did I do something wrong while installing it? The weather in the room where the computer is located at is very hot. So, maybe thats a difference?

Ambient temps can definitely play apart on the temps you are seeing.
You could always try a re-seat on the CPU.

Load temps. And, ambient meaning surrounding area? Yah it's about 80 F here with a 70% humidity. Also, another quick question. I had trouble getting the xclamp or whatever seated on the screws and stuff, I eventually got it...but i guess im just wondering weather or not that's ok?

Learn Celsius. The majority of the site uses it when it comes down to temps.
So ~26C. That's pretty warm, and yes. That could effect your CPU temps.

39C while gaming? That's not bad at all.

Yeah, although that's about what I get on my Phenom II 965 on 3.8GHz when I play The Witcher 2 for about 2 hours. Doesn't sound too bad.

39c is really quite decent. My CPU sees 48c after BC2 for a couple of hours, but my room is insanely warm. Probably close to 30c in here since the sun fires straight into here.

Sorry to hijack thread, but i do not want to start a new one since it has to do with this cooler.

What is the best method of applying the thermal paste since this has direct 4 heat pipes on the bottom. Will regular pea dot do?
