Cooler Install Question 212+

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey all after trying to OC for a couple of weeks now and continuous high temperatures i have decided to throw my stock cooler out and purchase a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, My question is should i use the thermal paste supplied with the new cooler (Just says coolmaster on tube) or should be buy a different type?

Any help would be much appreciated

The thermal pound that Hyper 212 includes is sufficient and will suffice.

But i would recommend something like a the Arctic MX-2 if you want to be a little more on the cool side

Also, 4.5ghz OC on the hyper 212 would be quite decent. I wouldn't go above that if you don't have proper ventilation/water cooling.

I would recommend another thermal paste such as the Artic Silver 5 or if there is newer ones. It helped me reduce 5 celsius when I used that cooler.

But it's not that bad either.

I would stay away from Arctic Silver 5 just for the fact that it is electrically conductive. Better to be safe than sorry. It had it's day as the best TIM, but now I would recommend Arctic Cooling MX-4, or even MX-2 like others have said. OCZ Freeze is pretty good as well. But in all actuality the stuff that came with your cooler is good as well. But when you run out, give MX-4 a shot. I love it and use it on all my CPUs and GPUs

The stuff it comes with is fine.


All mainstream thermal materials are just fine if you use the right amount.
