Run a stress test (IBT or P95 x64) for at least 10 minutes and monitor your cpu temp during the tests, to exclude overheating as a possible cause for the freezing.

Got my 212 evo, and WOW. I must say I don't know why I held off so long on getting this, MUCH quieter even on load and WAY better temps.

I still haven't seen it at the socket go above 49c on full load. Before, with the stock cooler, it would go to mid 60's on average, even above at times close to 70c.

OP's linked video helped a lot. Installed in about half an hour. thumb.gif

Thanks for your feedback.

Just to let you (and everyone else) I just bought a new DSLR, and that means a new guide with much sharper pics and better video guide all coming soon.

Hello .I have a problem with this damn cooler and i dont know what else to do as i'm going bananas.

So i bought a new custom made pc some time ago, an intel platform with a gigabyte h97 hd3 motherboard and evo 212 cooler.

I was having bad freezing issues with very high cpu spikes so i immediately reinstalled the cooler but with no luck. Sometimes it booted fine but after a few minutes later the freezes began again. So i put the pc horizontally and took off the back plate and standoffs and only left the cooler. It was all good, no freezes, pc was working normal. The next day i installed the backplate and standofs but didnt installed the X bracket and again all was working good.

So the next thing i do was to install the X bracket and came to conclusion that the bracket was the problem. I installed the cooler in all positions and the problem still persists. A temporary solution was to gently lift with my hand the cooler like in the photo and the freezes goes away but the second i let go the freezes start again.zpg4KWfl.jpg EVEN with the pc horizontally i need to push the cooler from the bottom.

So my final solution was to NOT screw the cooler all the way down. I only screw it enough for the cooler not to fall down, 5-7 turns. If i screw any more the freezes start again. now its working normal but i'm affraid it will fall someday.

I'm pretty pissed that this happens on a new pc, i dont know whats the problem with it. It's always the X braket no matter what i do and always the bottom side no matter what possition the cooler is.

Did anyone else had similar issues? i might sell it and buy some other cooler as i can't find a permanent solution

To clarify... I am assuming it was working perfectly fine with your previous cooler?

Well, that's strange headscratch.gif let's see what we have here:

- When the 212 is put on the cpu (Chassis laid down) using only it's own weight, everything is fine (Base Plate is fine)
- screwing the bracket all the way own causes freezes Even if horizontal. (too much pressure ? unbalanced pressure ?)
- Pushing the cooler from bottom (while secured with bracket) eliminates freezing. (Bottom screwed in fine, top loose ?)

Yup, it sounds that your bracket has something wrong. To verify that, do this:

- install it normally like in the picture you provided and test for freezing.
- Then flip the whole case upside down (feet up) and test again.

If it's the bracket's fault it will freeze at one of those tests, because flipping the case will use the gravity to pull the cooler to the other direction, as if you're pushing it with your hands.

Also the thermal paste will act as a fingerprint showing irregularities in the pressure of your Heat sink.

I also suspect the threads on the bracket or in the nuts, you can inspect them with a magnifier.

Good Luck thumb.gif

The bracket seems fine, it dosent look bent or anything and the material that its made from looks pretty solid and hard to bent. I also did tried to losen up the bottom screws and tighten the upper ones but same result.

In one test i had the pc horizontally and installed the cooler with the fan blowing down. It was working fine for 2 days and i tought i solved the problem but when i put the pc case on its feet it was freezing from first boot. And the thermal paste seems fine and pretty uniform after i remove the cooler.

At the moment the cooler is in the position like in the photo above. I dont know how much good will do flipping the case as i allready established that the problem is the bracket, also the bracket fits perfectly when i try to screw it so no unnecesary pressure there. Is the middle bracket screw that holds the 2 plates need to be tighten or more loosen? or it dosent matter?

When i try to screw the bracket i do my best to even the number of rotates on every screw but it dosent seem to make a difference and it always results in 1 or 2 screws that need be tighten more. Does every screw need to have exactly the same number of rotates? it sounds kinda silly

Fan blowing down, no issues ? Check your Chipset & GPU temps. (How would you do that when it wouldn't even boot ?)

The screw in the middle of the bracket controls the bracket opening/closing mechanism, It adds force feedback to the movement and lets you know when it locks into a certain position. It has nothing to do with pushing the heatsink against your CPU.

No matter how I screw my bracket, I always end up screwing it all the way down, the springs on each screw ensures even pressure across all 4 corners.

At this point, I suggest taking your problem to the hyper 212 club. There, you'll find more people willing to help which will dramatically increase chances of solving your problem.

Good Luck and sorry I failed to help you...
