3930k with Hyper212 Evo temp question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just built a rig for my nephew and I had to install his Hyper 212 Evo so that the fan faces the top of his case instead of the back because there was an ASRock chipset making the normal installation impossible. He is currently experiencing these temp averages: 33c (rest) and 64c (load). These are temps recorded by Core Temp and the highest temp was produced during Intel Burn Test on "High" (2048MB) settings. These seem really high to me, should I try and re-install the heatsink? Oh, I also used the thermal compound that came with the heatsink (I think that might be effecting it too). Anyway, here are his system specs:

Case: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast
Motherboard: ASRock X79 Extreme4 LGA 2011 Intel X79
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply
HDD: Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB
Heatsink: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
GPU: EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit

Please weigh in on this and let me know if you need any further info. Apparently, Intel is reporting the Tcase temp (whatever that is) as 66.8c, and Core Temp lists the Tj. Max as 91c. Not too sure which of these temps to go by or if I should worry.

Also, the GPU is in the top slot right under the CPU. I am thinking it might be contributing to the heat factor since there is only about 1 inch between the top of the GPU and the intake of the heatsink fan. I am thinking about relocating the GPU to the middle slot, since if I move it to the bottom slot it will be located directly over the PSU.

I was wanting to put a mild OC (about 4.2 GHz) on the system, but I don't think that's a good idea at these temps

Any thoughts or information you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I can't really help with temps, but they are not too high. Core temp is approx 10c higher then Tcase temp.

Do move GPU to middle slot.

I'm sure someone will be along soon who is more knowledgeable than I to help you.

I have since removed the Hyper 212 Evo and re-installed it the correct way (blowing towards the back). The temps are only about 2c different. Does he need to get a push/pull fan setup to get a better result?

Edit: I should note it has actually gotten hotter in the house too.

I changed from a hyper 212 evo on my 3930k to a nh-d14. Got a good 8-13~ drop.

You need a beast to cool that 6 core chip.

What dnnk said. 212 is just barely able to keep it cool. Bigger cooler will be cooler and quieter.

212+ performs better than 212 evo

http://www.cowcotland.com/articles/949-3/cooler-master-hyper-212-plus-vs-evo.html

now, if normally 212+ can cool better(bcuz better fans) I would say try another heatsink. thumb.gif

also remember TDP of 212+ is about 180w or less, that cpu is 130w 100% load, maybe its real TDP is 150w? biggrin.gif

Those temps are at stock? They are a litle high but than again it's a 6 core.
Push pull should lower the temps , also try and get the temps lower in the case!
If you do chnge the cooler I would invest in a h100 or h220 from swiftec

CM212 stock fans has good static pressure. changing the stock fan will help with noise but
the thermal performance doesn't change that much. also, push-pull configuration doesn't
help that much with this heatsink.

real nice chip you got. i would go with high end air or a swiftech H220 (like others have recommended).
lots of great heatsinks on the market today. and very competitive pricing. like the True Spirit 140 $39.99 shipped
comes with a $15 TY-140 140mm fan.

other recommendation in link below.
