Hyper 212 Evo stock fan + noctua fan = push/pull? *attached pictures/results*

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Going to be purchasing a Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120MM to put on my 212 Evo cooler. I was wondering if I only order 1 noctua-- could I use it with my stock 212 Evo fan in a push/pull configuration?

Noctua fans are over rated, just get the same fan as one on the cooler. This will be cheaper and you can spend your money on other areas if needed.

What CPU are you cooling? And what are your current temps?

If you are not running Haswell and the CPU is below or around 80°C then I wouldn't bother.

I just put my build together a few days ago..

-I5-4670K
-Asus z87-A Mobo
-Hyper 212 evo
-Corsair 300R Case
-Corsair CX600M
-Win 8.1/8gb DDR3/SSD

I want to do a light overclock to around 4.2-4.4ghz in a week or two (for light gaming/everyday use).
Current temp at idle with 212 Evo installed ~ 28c (used the supplied coolermaster thermal paste)
Haven't seen temps at full load just yet.

Run prime95 for 5 mins and check your cpu core temp with HWmonitor

You can run either, but blend tends to give more heat out.

Thanks.

It's been running (blend) for about 15mins- and it's reading 50-55c for its core package value. (min-30c and max-57c) for the last few mins.

Is this normal? How long should I keep this going?

Haswell should not be kept "or around 80c" Haswell should always be kept under 80c for 24/7 use.

It's been running for about 30mins and core package value temp is at 58-60c for last 20mins. Is this stable? VID is at 1.067V
