I never used the stock fans I went straight to 3x TY-143's, but I don't regret it.
Check these prime95 runs below.
This is my 212+ (push/pull):
As you can see, I was running at 4.7ghz with 1.255v on an older version of prime (that version seems to push me 4-5c less than 27.9 does)
Now look at my Phanteks + 3x TY-143's
Keep in mind, this was immediately after install, without curing (used phanteks TIM) and no tint.
Now look at my Phanteks + 3x TY-143's with the proper version of Prime, with more time to cure and a higher OC/voltage:
As you can see, it handles 4.8ghz like a champ considering the voltage (12hr stable) and the vcore, and these were just the max temperatures, it was mainly 70~ average. (This time using a tint and uncured AS5)
I would highly recommend these fans, I have a chip that runs pretty hot even on lower voltage.
I am not delidded, but I will be soon and will post my results once I do.
In conclusion, Prime95 27.9 seems to push the cpu 5~ degrees or so more than 27.7, add to that I'm running a higher OC with TIM that hasn't cured yet, I'd say I've already gained about 15c realistically versus the 212+, with room for improvement. I know the DIE probably has a piss poor application of TIM on it though, cause I get crazy heat on lower volts. I'll be delidding soon!Edited by neofury - 6/19/13 at 7:41am
