Hi and thanks for this helpful guide. I am building my first gaming rig ever and enjoying it

CPU AMD FX6300 (6 core)
Mother board GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P
CPU Heatsink Coolermaster 212 Evo
(Haven't started it yet, still waiting on the hd/optical/windows)

Before I ask questions, I'm glad I saw this post, because I will definitely run the one fan that came with the heatsink and blow back to the exhaust fan in the back.

My 2 questions, if you don't mind

1) I cinched the screws down all the way. Alternating and everything, they went down pretty smooth. Should I back them up? I am wondering if it will make too much pressure on the mobo/processor. Or if it's ok, I won't mess with it. But the next question might also answer this.

2) I used (yes, newb here) all the paste. In spreading it out I found it thicker than expected and difficult to spread. That being said, when I cinched down the heatsink, it oozed out the sides. I did get that much cleaned up. However, it seems like in forums most people think that too much paste can increase heat. That being said, should I try to start it up and see what the temps are in the bios first and see if they're acceptable? Or should I just buy some artic silver and redo the whole thermal paste, taking everything apart again.

FYI at this time, I don't plan on overclocking. However I might in the future (not sure my board supports it but my processor and gpu both say they're ready to overclock) and I'm wondering if there is a good program that runs temps/oc or if that's all done from the bios?

Let's answer your second question first, Watch this:

Now, Back to your first question ... I recommend that you reinstall it from the beginning, screw everything all the way down and tighten it a little bit to make sure every thing is secure.

I'm planning for a series of videos to make everything clear.

I've just ordered a new EVO after my first EVO after having a disasterous install. Could someone help me?

When I was installing I noticed I had some of the screws in the wrong position. So I tried to take it off to redo it.

All of the standoffs became permanently attached to the screws on the X bracket. It was impossible to unscrew them no matter how much force I used from it and trying to do so actually broke the X bracket in two.

I can supply pictures if neccesary.

Quote your post in the Hyper 212 club AND supply pictures. Make sure to explain it all in detail to make it easier to help you

Hi, Lots of people were confused when installing this cooler and the included manual was trash, so I decided to make a guide. New Guide (Universal) (Click to show)

1- For Sockets 2011 and 1366, Use these standoffs:


Otherwise, Use these: (The glue is squeezed out from between the standoff and the insulating washer due to applied pressure).




Place 1 standoff in each of the 4 holes around the CPU Socket.


Look at the backside of the Motherboard.


Now prepare the backplate, For Intel: Install with this side facing the back of the motherboard.

For AMD: Install with this side facing the back of the motherboard.





Now, Grab your nuts (No need for them in case of LGA2011 as the standoffs screw directly to the socket):







Apply your Thermal interface Material:

Prepare the X-Bracket:

Install the heatsink in the desired orientation (Warning: Don't remove the heatsink after this point to avoid creating air bubbles in your TIM causing overheating):

Close the X-Bracket and pass it through the heatsink.

Open it like this for Intel:

Open it like this for AMD:


For LGA 775: Use the inner gap.
For LGA 1150/1155/1156, AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2: Use the middle gap.
For LGA 1366/2011: Use the outer gap.

Screw it in, in a diagonal pattern:


Heatsink firmly in place (It's OK if it wiggles a bit):

Time to install fan(s) in 3 easy steps:

1- Screw the bracket(s) to the fan(s) and apply the noise dampers.
2- Clip in the fan(s) to the heatsink.
3- Connect the fan(s) to the CPU_FAN header.












  Old Guide (Socket Dedicated) (Click to show)
LGA 1150\1155\1156 Installation (Click to show)
1- Remove the front and rear case doors.

2- Unbox your cooler and look for the backplate.

3- Install it with this side facing the backside of the mobo.





Like This:



4- Now Get these Standoffs and nuts:



There are 3 positions in the included backplate to use for different sockets, for the 1155 socket, use the one in the middle:



Now, apply the screws and nuts, but DO NOT tighten yet (until all of them are in place):





5- Now use this head (included) to be able to tighten with a screw driver:





Like This:



Time to Apply Your TIM: (Mine is as big as a drop of water and it spreads like this)



Vertical Mounting (If your 4th ram stick is tall)



Horizontal Mounting:



Insert the bracket in the heatsink like this:



There is a hole where this screw goes in to keep the heatsink in place:



The hole in the middle: once you insert the bracket, open it to the appropriate size:



once in place, place your heatsink on the cpu (WARNING: once in place, DO NOT remove it or you will allow air bubbles to go into your TIM resulting in more heat)


Make sure your screws align same way as you did when installing the back plate (Middle position)


You can't reach these screws if the fan(s) are installed




Don't forget to tighten the screw in the middle.



Now Install your fan(s), if you have big hands, connect the MB_CPU cable first:











If you have big hands, Connect this cable before installing the pull fan:


LGA 1366 Installation (Click to show)
Images are from Vortez.net





LGA 2011 Installation (Click to show)

Thanks to Ramsey77 for the pics.

No need for backplate\Nuts. (Screw the Standoffs Directly to the CPU Socket itself).





It should look like this: (Source)

AM3 Installation (Click to show)
Thanks to Bobbos Khedr for the pic

Installation is the same as the LGA 1155 but using the opposite side of the backplate.

  FAQ (In Progress) (Click to show)
Q: Is it better then stock/reference cooler ?
A: Yes, It is.

Q: Is it expensive ?
A: No, It's the best bang for your buck as a budget cooler.

Q: How much TIM (Thermal Interface Material) should I apply on the CPU ?
A: The thinnest layer possible to fill the gaps which can't be seen by normal eye and ensure an even surface for maximum heat transfer.

Q: Is it OK for the heatsink to wiggle even after tightening the screws all the way down ?
A: Yes, You can slightly rotate it in place, but it's movement is restricted by the bracket.

Q: What's the difference between Hyper 212 Plus/Evo/X ?
A: 1- Plus: 2 versions, Fan clip and fan bracket version, Uses Blademaster fans.
2- Evo: 2 Versions, Single fan and dual fan (Turbo), Uses Xtraflo fans.
3- X: A modified Evo, 4 Gen bearing fan, redesigned fan blades, X-vents & air guide.

This is a great guide, thanks. Quick question though, I built this PC two years ago and I feel I used way too much thermal paste back then, so I wanted to reseat the cooler with the new thermal paste. Do I have to take the mobo out of the case or anything, or should this be possible by just laying the case on its side?

If I keep the bracket that goes on the back of the motherboard screwed in like it is, and just unscrew the "X" bracket, can I pop the bracket and heatsink right off and put it back on by just re-screwing the x-bracket down?

This, You don't need to remove the backplate.

Sorry for the late reply.

Awesome, thanks for the reply anyway! I'll probably do this tomorrow. I was worried it was going to be a really time consuming ordeal but it shouldn't take too long to reseat it and reapply TIM.

Hey thanks. There is a small pin on the heat sink. I was wondering if you know the relevance of it. I am talking about the pin that is on the top of the base of the cooler. Very small pin.
