Anyway I forgot what my idle temps were before (silly me ) but I believe they were something in the mid-40s (degrees Celcius)
I do remember my load temps (using Prime95 to put 100% load on my CPU). They were (before the Hyper 212 Plus; with the stock cooler) around 75C in the beginning and up to 80C after 15 minutes!!
Anyway with the Hyper 212 plus they permanently stay at 55C max (!!) and didn't yet rise any further
Now it's time to start overclocking

can you guys give me some feedback why you think the 212+ is easy or hard to install? i will actually be putting one on my new 2600k in just a few hours.

i have not installed a cpu cooler for 8 years, and back then they were small and simple. i tried taking the CM v8 off of my last computer and it proved almost impossible, with brackets on the backside and screws that just spun in place.

i didnt have good tools to use that time tho, this time around i ordered the rosewill pc building toolkit for like 15 bucks on sale.

i always get scared i am breaking computer parts, yet when i see experienced builders handle them it is gut wrenching how much they trust the durability.

The main thing you want to realize is that the screws holding the backplate in place are not perfectly round. They have a flat side on them if you look closely that enables them to slide through the backplate and are then held by the provided nuts. Other than that, it's a piece of cake.

So that's why they can be a pain to get in and out... how have I not realized that?

When I installed my 212+ it was quite easy, however I noticed that it was possible to rotate the cooler a little from side to side, even after it was installed, there's a split on the base, to prevent this, however it still gives the cooler a little freedom to rotate, this has been the same situation on the 4 212+'s I've been installing through time, is this the same with yours?

Yes, this is normal. It's no big deal unless it moves easily after you've tightened it down all the way.

Actually, I recommend NOT reading the instructions. Just go to a youtube video and look at how it is installed. Then do it yourself.

I have just had a quick look through this guide, but it should be quite good... the only thing: Step one tells you to remove the motherboard. You don't necessarily have to. Some cases allow you to install backplates without removing the motherboard. Just keep that in mind
Also: USE the guide that comes with the Hyper 212 Plus, but it does leave out some information...
So for the information missing use this guide:
