hyper 212 evo temperature not satisfying - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Well, I'm no expert in thermodynamics, but from what I do know, the disparity of heat dispersal in relation to surface area decreases as ambient temperature increases. Most people are running in considerably lower tempuratures, like 20c-22c, so it's likely we see a bigger difference in going from a stock cooler to something like the 212 evo.

That being said, I would check a few things to see if your temps could improve. Check your case's airflow, and airflow bottlenecks. (I'm not sure if by open air you meant you had no case or not, if not, then disregard this first part.) If your case has bad venting, one or two (or no) small 80mm fans, you're putting all of the work on the 212's fans in a small space, seriously decreasing their efficiency. With the cooler itself, I'd try a couple reseats. I know my EVO was a little tricky getting it seated and tightened without it moving, so it could be air bubbles in the TIM. The CM paste it comes with should be good enough, you're really not going to see a difference between that and more expensive stuff. Also, how long have you been running with it? I notice after I remove and replace my 212 EVO and paste, the temps drop 3c-4c after a couple days of settling.

have you considered fan speeds and environmental temps?

Also being in the 50s is cold.

Ok...guys thanks a lot...i mean like a lot....I would try any thing to lower temps.....
Just nw tat my cpu is really low....33watt........And just nother thing is 58c good or bad i mean will last like at least 1 more year

Can't tell if 58c is good or bad without knowing exactly what CPU you have. For many that a very safe temperature. For others it's too hot.

Your idle temp is probably wrong because the temperature monitoring is for high temps not low temps and low temps on AMD are virtually non-existent.. it shows a temp but it is not the actual temp. Intel are better but still not accurate at low readings.

Intel i3/i5/i7 are almost all very safe at 70-80c while many AMD have max temp ratings of 55-60c as an example.

Now to confuse the issue "Core Temp" and "CPU Temp" are not the same. Read the below link

I'd recommend replacing the fans with gentle typhoons or SP120'es or even noctuas if you wanna make your 40$ cooler to 80$ cooler...
The temps are ok, Hyper212 is low end aftermarket CPU cooler, It's not gonna do wonders.
Also you'r ambient temps are really high. Ambien temps affect your CPU temps a lot. if your ambient temps rise 5C you CPU temp rises 5C too. My english isn't perfect thats the best way i can put it biggrin.gif

Your second sentence contradicts your first sentence. biggrin.gif Number of pipes and fin area generally trump dollars. Better fans may help some but not as much as a better cooler would.
CPU temp is probably safe but I want to know exactly what the CPU is before saying it is.

Most all really good coolers come with universal mounts and some (Noctua) will give you free updated mounts for new CPUs released after you buy their cooler. (Does not apply to special editions like NH-D14 SE2011) so a premium cooler now for old CPU cab be used years in the future on new CPUs. And if you have to buy a new mount they are only $5-10.00.

What i meant by "it's not gonna do wonders" is that OP shoudn't expect too much from such low end cooler rolleyes.gif
New fans would atlest solve the noise problem tho wink.gif
Any modern CPU is safe below 60c easily. For intel most say it shouldn't go over 80C while stress testing and some say around 90C. My i5.3570k goes up to 65ish @ 4.5Ghz 1.22V

What're the fans model, are the same that comes with the Evo (XtraFlo)?

I'm using the 212+ push pull with 2 XtraFlo fans (US version 600 rpm - 2000 rpm).
I would say the fans're loud at higher speeds but are pretty quiet around 1000 rpm - 1200 rpm.

3-pin fans like the Sickleflow could be loud running always at max 2000 rpm without speed control.

I can't tell about the Core 2 Duo.

My CPU is the Core I5 3550, I guess it should run hotter than the Core 2 Duo.

The cores temps goes around 50 C - 52 C with the Prime95 or IBT.
The fans spin around 750 - 900 rpm during the stress test.

load temps staying down is what matters... also, exponentially less noise than the stock intel HSF. for 20-30 bucks, it may very well be worth it for some people.

Intel core 2 duo...e4600 is my cpu...it's running at 2.4ghz..1.2v default no oc...65nm(unlike todays cpu..32nm or 28nm)
Yes ..i'm only worried abt load temperature(I noe tat's wat matter....Bt this cpu have max temperature of 72.3C..according to intel website..//
And difference in temperature at load is only like 4c or 6c at max compared to stock cooler(10usd in my country)....my setup is nt even inside a case...it's in open air.........+I noe hyper 212...
is not cheap for the job it do(it's basically cooler to keep cpu running optimally and long lasting....just running a little quiet then intel fan doesn't
mean it' should be pricier...I might have change the fan only instead....haiz....bt still thanks..i will try clean my heatsink(although already clean)
Reapply tim in best way....
