Any CM 212+ owners, what is the preferred method and amount of TIM for these IB CPU's with the 212+?

Using MX-4


Prep cooler surface with a bit of paste w/ card and then a rice sized in center of CPU netted me the best with SB.


Getting a 3770k Tues.

Thanks.
WOO HOO!

With the 212+, spread a bit on it prior to the rice-grain method to get a bit of thermal paste between the copper heat pipes. After getting the heat sink prepped with the thermal paste, put an uncooked rice grain-sized thermal paste on the center of your CPU and just lay it like you would with any other heat sink. I normally stay away from those type of heat sinks because it's a bit hard to tell whether you got a good seat or not, but you can't do anything about it.

yeah i used to use the gadget but i just started using the OSD.. uses less resources (i think) and achieves same thing. either way, its a great program.. i show all my core temps, core and mem speeds, mem timings, all of my voltages (core, dimm, vccio, vccsa, pll, pch, etc.), gpu core clock, gpu mem clock, gpu temps, gpu voltage. All in a little pane on the side of the screen at all times... it's perfect. I dont use this on my benching drive/OS but its perfect for my everyday/gaming

AIDA64 is well worth the money you pay for it. the monitoring stuff i just mentioned, all of the benchmark tests, stability/stress tests, system information that youd be hard pressed to find on your own, etc. etc. and the list goes on. Very versatile application that i dont ever regret paying for

Would setting it below that damage anything on my build?

I've been running prime since I lowered it earlier and I haven't crashed or gotten any WHEA errors so far. It's 1.5000 right now.

yeah i mean no harm no foul.. just most people do keep it at or above 1.6
that being said, if youre fine at 1.5 then i dont see anything wrong with it. are you gaining anything by using 1.5 instead of 1.6?
