I5-2500k + Hyper 212 evo thoughts/questions (picture)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The I5-2500k has a vertical chip row.

Mounted vertically, the 212 evo puts a air pocket/ thermal grease gutter directly over all the cores. This also means steam rising in the heat pipes will warm up the uppermost cores.

I'm seeing as much as a 8c increase on the topmost core.

Mounted horizontally it would have 3 pockets, but less "gutter" sitting over the cores in general. The load of heat would be spread across all 4 heat pipes instead of just the two central ones.

Wouldn't it be smarter for me to mount the evo in a horizontal way so that more heat pipes are put to work?

I just wonder if any gains I make would be canceled out by the fact the steam doesn't get to rise as easily, and the liquid trickling back down the wick wouldn't be as cold.

Why not get a heatsink the spreads the heat. The HDT heatsinks link the 212+ all have the same weakness. The non-HDT heatsinks spread the heat.

I do not want to consider other heatsinks, I liked the price and weight of 212evo.

The topic is about how to get the best temperature from the 212evo when mounted to a vertical line set of cores.

The synthetic benchmarks of the cooler use a heating plate that produces heat fairly evenly across the whole of the surface. When there are horizontal and vertical core arrangements, I feel this is far from a 1:1 test setup.

So... can we stick to the evo, please?
