Re-seating my Hyper 212+ Question

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
When I first installed my Hyper 212+, I kinda screwed it in at a slight angle and it's not parallel to my ram sticks. I had the idea that if I loosened the screws a little bit, I could rotate it a few millimeters and screw it back down.

My question is about the TIM. If I let the computer heat up a bit before I did this, the TIM would be a little more "liquid-y" right? Could I just go ahead and fix it like I planned to, or would I have to remove it and re-apply the thermal paste? I'm referring to the TIM that the cooler came with.

The stock TIM that the 212+ comes with should already be somewhat fluid enough for you to rotate the heatsink. If you would like, you can go ahead and reapply everything, but I don't think it would be neccessary for rotating just a few angles. You can monitor your temps just to make sure though.

so long as you don't lift the cooler off the CPU you should be fine. You may be able to do it without loosening the screws if you did not do it too tight.

Just check your temps when your done.

Thanks for the responses. I'm not going to be lifting it off of the CPU so it should work fine. I usually idle at 35-40C and max out at like 65C or so, and hopefully this little rotation will help (one of the fans is raised slightly over the top of the cooler because the ram gets in the way due to the angle it's at).

If you're going to reapply the thermal paste. This article might help you about how to apply the TIM right.
