Hyper 212 Plus Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Probably a dumb question... but I fgure I'll ask anyway.

I am putting together a new PC for my GF, and she bought the CM Hyper 212 Plus for her cooler.

I have pair of GT AP-15's sitting n a shelf, that I was going to use in a future new build thats likely not going to happen now, and I am curious as to whether it would be worth taking the Hyper's stock fan, and swapping it for one of the AP-15's?

I know the AP-15's are supposed to be like, godly, and all.. I have a pair on my H50 cooling my 2500K.. but would it, REALLY, make much difference on her Hyper 212, which will be cooling a Phenom II x4 955.

Hey we pretty much have the same setup for hsf and cpu. I wouldn't say it would make a huge difference with the AP's on there but its enough of a difference probably to run them in push pull vs the stock config. I used to run 2 UK3K's in push pull but I got tired of the noise and switched them out with some cheap cooler master 2K fans. I run the fans at max all the time and the temp difference between them and the kazes is less than 5c. I also use shrouds and electrical tape to tape up the sides and I couldnt be happier with this cooler. Max 50c on a 4ghz OC right now, its not bad in the summer either, somewhere like 55-60c max on a really hot day with this same set up.

To sum it up, I feel this cooler does a really good job whether you're running high or low rpm fans but putting it in a push/pull config will make the most sense.

I don't think you will see much difference, but others may have a different opinion. The 212 stock fan supposedly works pretty good 2cents.gif

Thanks for the advice guys!

I may not be able to do push/pull... as she bought the Antec 300 Illusion case, which already has FOUR case fans on it; and shes getting my old Asus 890GX motherboard; which only has 4 fan headers on it... so one of the case fans will be removed, likely the rear fan... least until I can find some adaptor to connect a couple of the fans direct to the PSU...

Until then... she wants me to keep the 300's stock LED Fans cause she 'likes" the way it looks, so those three will use the two CHA Fan connectors and the one PWR Fan connector, leaving the CPU Fan connector for the Hyper 212...

So I'll probably just go with the stock CM fan on it for now and see how well it preforms...

Then maybe find a way to put in the AP-15's in the future if its too loud and she wants it to run quieter.

the stock fan of the cm 212+ is very good and only goes really loud on full load. otherwise, for normal use, the stock fan is good enough.
