I don't have any experience with those coolers, but it would appear that they might be easier to install. Like I said though, using painters tape works just fine for me and I've been using it without issue for some time now. I'll pass this on to Gabe and Stephen, but I would think that the added cost of those mounting systems just won't be justifiable. That's just my opinion though.

I was gonna suggest this... I use painters tape for everything... take apart waterblock, cover the polished base with painters tape... installing H220 with the case sideways, tape the fans to the case until you can thread a few screws... leaves no residue it's the modders version of ductape =D

No one is saying that! If your not seeing an improvement, there is something wrong. It's as simple as that. What the problem is, I'm not sure. A bad mount, air in the system, not enough coolant in the system, fans not spinning at right speed. I don't know, but the H220 definitely outperforms the CM212!

Trying to get speedfan configured, but when I select the proper Chip in the advanced tab, there's no options in the drop down menu. Using a Z77X-UD5H.

Just a reminder that the CM Hyper 212+ retails for $29.99 with the bracket, so I suspect the cost of goods isn't that high (although recognizing that CM's volume is certainly a lot higher.)

Of course, another equally fine solution would be to ditch those little adhesive blocks, and in the documentation just tell people to use painter tape to hold it in place!

The real issue with those blocks is that you can't reuse them, I didn't bother removing the paper knowing that I'll be doing a second mount, or migrating cases soon.

One big advantage of the fan control tab, is that those curves have a hysteresis setting. On the default, non-curve, settings, speedfan has an annoying habit of cycling back and forth as the measured temperature goes back and forth a degree.

Any tips on configuring the curve?

Hysteresis prevents that? Good to know, thank you!
