I have cable managed everything and there are no cables blocking airflow, I have a 140mm fan at the front, a 120mm fan just behind the GPU (i.e. above the hard drives to flow air from the front fan to the GPU and CPU), a side panel 120mm fan and a rear 120mm exhaust fan. And still my temps are rubbish! Everyone is so in favour of this cooler but I'm seriously considering dumping it for a Corsair A70 - perhaps I have a poor base since the coolest cores are 5 deg lower
too many fans? turn off the fans just behind the gpu and the side panel. test if it helps bring temp down. is your 212 in push/pull?

I've tried lots of things mate, loads of different configs such as push pull, just two fans running, mounting a fan at the top, two fans at the top etc. etc. and it always stays about the same - adding the side panel fan and fan behind the GPU brought it down from 75 degrees to 69. Like I say, the coolest core is 64 which isn't disasterous so perhaps the base is bad or maybe I've been a wally 3 times and added too much paste (don't think I have though, last time I was at pains to get it just right)

Do you have your 212+ mounted so airflow is front to back, or bottom to top?

Sometimes a Vertical mounting option works better as long as you don't have a GPU in the top slot, and a horizontal setup might be hampered if you don't hand any airflow at the front of your case.

I remember with my old In-Win case, I had to mount a fan in the CD drive bay area to increase the air going to the intake side of the 212+ and I had to upgrade the exhaust fan because the 212+ was blowing out hot air faster than the echaust fan could suck it out. So there was a hot air build-up right by the rear I/O panel that eventually starts to add heat to the base of the cooler area and VRM's/

I don't have much left that is why i saved it

Bakcplate and screws first before the cooler.
IF you install properly you might get better spread of tim and better temps
thank. ive been doing this stuff for a long time. im pretty sure i know how to install a cooler properly. everything from air to water to phase so im sure it was not me. and im pretty sure its not mounted wrong either. Thanks tho for the input. i will say that the holes and the stand off screws were very tight on the 1155 spot. they slid in and out for the 1366 and 775 holes.

If you add another blademaster fan to make it a push/ pull, you will probably see another 2-3° drop in temps.
if i had another fan i will probably go with a couple of higher performing fans. im not really looking to squeeze ever bit out of this cooler its just a stop gap to hold me over till i finish my water loop build. with that said i was still pretty happy with the results and it being only 25 bucks

what is your ambient temps that could play a big factor. you could also be applying to much TIM.

Don't get another fan. High performance fans on a 212+ aren't worth it. If you're going to spend more money on fans, then you might as well went with a better cooler in the first place. The stock fan is pretty awesome anyway

sure they are. i can take them off the cooler and put them on the case when i convert back to water but thanks for the heads up
