Hyper 212+ spinning to 2000RPM on load - too hot, too loud

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all. This has been annoying me for a while and I want to do something about it.

i5-760 @ 4GHz, 1.27 vcore
CM Hyper 212+
Antec Three Hundred case

I idle at 40-44C, but I have a warm room. Not sure what the room temperature is. As soon as I play a game, my CPU temperature rises to my target temperature of 45C, 50C, 55C, or whatever (set in BIOS), and the CPU fan revs up to 2000 RPM and goes crazy. I just can't play games with my CPU fan at 2000RPM. It's louder than both my GTX 570s, by far the loudest thing in my system.

Do I need to raise my target temperature further? Do I need to re-seat my heatsink? Is it my room temperature? Or is this just normal?

If you used the TIM that came with it its ok but there are things that are way better. Also how is your case air flow. The 212+ shouldn't be getting that hot. Also make sure you have enough TIM but not to much as the 212+ has those groves. Another thing you can try if your setup isn't already like this, try clocking the cooler so the fans blow air up and out the top of your case instead of front to back, and add another fan if needed.

You can try raise target temperature. 65 C should be fine and that's what I use.
If it still annoying, get a new fan. Or maybe a new heatsink.
I use Hyper 212+ fan (only the fan, not the heatsink) as well and it is noticeably loud when I do video encoding.

As a short term solution I have raised my target temp to 65 (as high as my BIOS will allow).

Also, I ordered some AS5 (initially installed with stock TIM which came with CPU... or was it the cooler?). Reseating will be a pain in the ass. Also thinking of buying a quiet PWM fan.

I have an Antec Three Hundred with an open front and two exhaust fans right near the CPU/heatsink. Airflow feels good. When I put my hand up to the front of the case I can feel it being sucked in.

It's a 120mm fan correct? If you're looking for a high quality fan look no further than Noctua. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608004

i find the stock hyper212+ fans to be quite loud @ load.

I replaced the fans on mine with 2x Gelid Silent 12 PWM fans

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835426015 (if you look i think these things are cheaper elsewhere)

so with the two of these i idle low 30s and prime 95 65C on hottest core (59 64 65 65) on my i5-2500K @ 4.3Ghz. The Gelid fans are basically silent at idle and very quiet at full load.


the Gelids aren't the highest performance but for the $10 a fan I paid for them i'm pleased with the noise levels and happy with the performance.


my case is a Gigabyte Triton 180 with 2x (1 front intake 1 rear exhaust) Gelid 120 Silent 12 1000RPM 3 pin case fans

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835426016


i have a XFX HD6870 installed also and a Corsair TX650 (V1) power supply.

these Cougar 12CM PWN fans might be worth a look also

Protip. Dont use the stock fan in a orientation that it is pushing air up. They get noisy and rattle a bit. Had 2 of them and they both did it at about the same time. tapping the case would top it for a while but it would always come back. Turned them over just to test and the noise vanished in my one day test.
