Hyper 212 Plus Universal CPU Cooler : Anything I should know? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I have a bag of the included thermal paste that comes with the Hyper 212+ heatsinks that is full. I have had a great experience on every single install, even including open box heatsinks.
But I also don't deal with Ivy bridge's IHS. I stick to sandy on almost all of the builds I do, and have been able to run 24/7 overclocks folding at 4.6~4.7ghz with great temperatures.
I do run AS5 on a few of the builds and it's alright. It's pretty thick.. It's not the best. but it's decent because it's available at most stores..
The cooler comes with extra mounting hardware to mount a second 120mm fan for a push-pull configuration.
The instructions are terrible.
1) Put the back plate against the back of the motherboard, so that the part that you will screw into is flush against the motherboard.
2) Slide the risers through the holes in the motherboard into the back plate (they're slotted and only slide through in one spot. Socket 1155 is the center hole.
3) Remove the fan that came pre-mounted on the Hyper 212+
4) Peel the plastic off the mounting plate for the Hyper 212+ and make sure both surfaces are clean.
5) Compress the "X" mounting piece and slide it behind the mounting plate. Make sure the notch on the "X" piece will line up with the peg on the back of the mounting plate.
6) Apply thermal paste (TIM), size of a grain of uncooked long rice preferably vertically along the cpu for Ivy bridge.
7) Set heatsink carefully down on the CPU, keeping the heatsink orthogonal (perpendicular)
*) It's always good to remove the heatsink carefully with a light upwards lift, while twisting the heatsink to remove and inspect your spreading technique.
8) Screw in the "X" mounting piece into the risers in a X pattern, much like torquing 4-lug wheels on a car.
9) clip the fan back on, careful of RAM clearance, and plug into 4pin CPU_Fan
10) Fold for OCN biggrin.gif

I had one briefly and it turned out I didn't tighten one side enough. So I'd make sure all screws are as tight as possible.

The fan can be a little loud under load. And push-pull is a very good idea, so getting two quieter fans is also recommended.

what are your temps at 4.5Ghz?

4.5Ghz requires 1.4v for me and temps hit 89C, while 4.4 only needs 1.2v and temps are at 77C degrees, room temp being 31C.I use it at 4.4Ghz daily, 100mhz isn't worth the extra heat and volts.

There are clips on the screws to show you how far to tighten.
Push-pull only helps by ~5% (1c)
Mine is running at 12v right now off my fan controller and I can barely hear it over my TwinFrozrII at idle

Wow that is a lot of voltage for 4.5GHz. Definitely stay at 4.4

nice, thanks for the info +rep
thinking of getting this for a 3570k build also

Look at this [Official] The Ivy Bridge Stable / Suicide Club

2 4.5 Ghz 3570K(click the 3570K entry only tab) with 212 Evo @ 1.2V/1.212 V with all temps under 80 (70-76-75-72)/(68-77-73-74):

Could be these users had better fans on the Evo/better case airflow/better ambient T but most likely a better chip since high-end OC is chip quality dependent and if you are lucky you get a chip that need less voltage for the same stable OC.

Yeah too many variables affect your overclock, 2 main reason I cant reach the volts and stability they have,

1- Its hot as hell here, my ambient is over 30 degrees all the time, no AC in this room.I am sure it will clock better in winter.
2- My board is the cheapest Z77 Gigabyte offers, it doesnt have the extra options such as ltt voltage, phase control etc like those more expensive models

I cant really talk about the quality of my chip unless I can eliminate the above 2 factors. But its one hell of a bang for the buck, I love the 3570K

i hit 4.6ghz with my hyper 212+ with temps of around 50-60 tops under normal load use
