Hyper 212+ testing, Push vs Pull vs Push Pull; Also Horizontal vs Vertical positioning

post #1 of 250
Thread Starter 
There are frequent questions regarding the Hyper 212+ and whether or not push pull is worth it for the heat sink, so I did a more complete test to find out.

There are also frequent questions regarding whether or not positioning the heat sink vertically would affect performances, so I tested that too.

Note:
These tests are done using Prime95 at 20 minute intervals. The graphics card was not under load during the tests therefore results may vary.

Also the case used was a CM Elite 335 with the rear and front fan grills cut out.

The testing is done using a i5 760 overclocked to 3.8GHz at 1.353V using IC Diamond TIM

The wiring may seem like a mess, but it is the best I can do, all of the extra power cables are up top and there is a hole where the fan in the 5.25" bays blow cool air into the case

The push/pull sickleflow was best since it had the highest cfm, but the push pull blademasters are also really good. But if someone buys a brand new Hyper 212+ or a Hyper 212 Evo, I would suggest just using the one fan, as shown above it is pretty close in temperature.

As for the being horizontal or vertical, either is good but you would need ball bearing fans because when I tested it, the blademaster was vibrating audibly. However with the cooler vertical, it is best to have either a gaping hole up top or to have a faster fan than the ones on the cooler.

Questions and suggestions are welcome!

Second test is complete.
Methodology has changed in one aspect, and that was the measurement of ambient temperature. Instead of measuring five centimetres away from the intake fan, I took the measurement directly off the cpu fan blades, resulting in what I think is a better ambient measurement. The other change that was made was the orientation of the HDT from horizontal to VERTICAL.
With that said, here are the results.

Afterthoughts: well, it's looking like the numbers are speaking for themselves, and this orientation certainly came as a suprise. After comparing both datasets, I'm starting to lean towards saying that the best orientation and direction for the hyper 212+ with side panel fans pulling in air, is VERTICAL with a PUSH configuration using a high static pressure fan such as the Blademaster.
Can someone be so kind as to create a graph for these results?
Next test will be with the Slipstream 1900RPM model.

This time, I omitted the case open portion, as it made no discernible difference to TOA. Also, judging by the numbers from the last test, I would expect a significant drop in temperatures from vertical to horizontal orientation using this fan again. Ambient was measured at both fans and averaged out to 22.53 C, well within testing parameters.

load:

TOA: 41.22
Thoughts: This further reinforces the theory that using a high CFM fan in the pull configuration/horizontal orientation works just as well, if not better than the Blademaster in the push configuration/vertical orientation, provided that the HDT fan has a supply of fresh exterior air.
Oh, and I really like the tone the scythe gives off. quite soothing even at full RPM. I'm almost willing to go so far as to mount it permanently in this current orientation using double sided weatherstrip tape.
Stay tuned for more results. This time, there will be a Delta TFB1212GHE involved. yes, the 220 CFM MONSTER!

I love data. +rep

 

Those pull fan results are very very interesting -- quite the opposite of other heatsinks. And you had consistent results: both fans produced better cooling on pull alone than with push/pull or push alone.

 

Opening out the back really shows the effect of an obstacle, even at some distance. I have put my hand on the output side of fans and heard the fans slow down. Now you have shown the open back model makes a big difference.

 

Those 2500 rpm sickleflows have ball bearings. They also come with their own speed adjustments, so they can be toned down to almost any rpm you like. With ball bearings they can point their airflow up. Pretty good for $4.12 fans.

they are, however without the controller they will not go above 800 rpm, and the only way to get them to max rpm is to press the 2 little prongs they have for the controller together, and then you have to have them on max. That is the only downside, I have not figured out how to get them to all be controlled. Also when i took out the back fan, I felt SO much air coming out simply from the blademaster itself

I noticed that myself, feeling the wind on my hand inside my case, the feeling the lack of wind outside the case. The rear grill basically shut down any air getting through. Then I cut out that rear grill . . .

my thoughts on why the pull works better: since the airflow is away from the heatsink instead of towards, it has the ability to work with more ambient, cooler air.

possibly that might be why.

Also ehume, I had no rear grill but with a fan, maybe it was just because the fan was lower RPM than the blademaster or it was just a bad fan, but i didn't feel much air so I took it out

Would you really want a high-cfm fan on the back? Pretty noisy.

lol, I have 4 of the 2500RPM sickleflows on my main rig, I think il pass lol. Also I have decided against selling it, as it contains most of my first rig parts, so i feel sentimental. Also cuz my roomy is a haggling cheapskate lol.

but that aside let me know if I I can do more tests

+rep for good and useful material.

 

I like to contribute to this thread by making adjustment for ambient temperature variance:-

Some previous studies have shown that the relationship between ambient temp and average core temp is linear with a slope of approximately 1.5C.  This slope of 1.5 means, for every degree change of ambient, average core temp rises by 1.5C rather than by 1C.

 

Raw data from OP is summarized below:-

Test   Ambient T    Core Temp Ave

1st     23.0                58.75

2nd    23.0                56.5

3rd    23.2                58

4th    23.3                57.75

5th    22.3                56.5

6th    23.5                58.25

7th    22.6                55.8

8th    22.4                56.75

9th    22.2                58.0

 

Raw data is adjusted by normalizing to the highest temp (ie 23.5C) of the set:-

Test   Normalized Amb T    Adj. Core Temp Ave (Temp Over Amb)

1st     23.5                         59.5 (toa=36)

2nd    23.5                         57.25 (toa=33.75)

3rd    23.5                         58.45 (toa=34.95)

4th    23.5                         58.05 (toa=34.55)

5th    23.5                         58.3 (toa=34.8)

6th    23.5                         58.25 (toa=34.75)

7th    23.5                         57.15 (toa=33.65)

8th    23.5                         58.4 (toa=34.9)

9th    23.5                         59.95 (toa=36.45)

 

Charting the above Temperature Over Ambient:-

Observation

From Tests 2, 3 and 4, the result exhibits the expected pattern:

a. Push/Pull has the lowest delta.

b. Push only and Pull only trail Push/Pull by 1.x C

c. Push only and Pull only differ by 0.5C

 

But from Tests 5, 6 and 7, the result is odd and unexpected.  Push/Pull gives the highest delta while Pull only is the coolest.

Looking over the raw data, I wonder if the ambient temp of 23.5C for Test 6 was actually 22.5C.  A mis-recording?

No they were recorded directly and the temps were lower. But keep in mind there might be a point where too fast of a fan might not perform as well as one. Both fans were on a splitter connected to the mobo. So they are equal in speeds
