So I changed the orientation of the Cooler Master Hyper 212+. I thought I'd share the result with you guys. In my opinion, for a-$20 cpu cooler, I am happy.

It was originally in a push/pull config blowing out from the rear of the case. I read some reviews of the cooler. People were getting far better results than I was getting. So I thought I'd play with it a little. Also I heard about the IC Diamond thermal paste. I thought why not give it a chance since it was on sale at a local retail store.

I changed the orientation of the cooler blowing out from the top 140 mm fan. At first, I disabled the side fan. I checked the results and saw that it was not affecting the cpu temp but affecting the graphics card. (GPU temps raised a little at idle. I guess it was blowing right at it. IDK.) Then I re-enabled it. The most affects the overall temp is the fan I added in the drive bay. It's a 120 mm blue led low-spin fan. I am contemplating whether I put a 140-mm in there or not. Would it be worth it? Anyways...

I run prime95 for about two hours. Because it said for IC Diamond to take effect it needed 2 hours. And then I left the pc alone overnight. In the morning, I checked the results and recorded them.

CPU Temps at idle:
Core #1:39
Core #2:39
Core #3:29
Core #4:35
Average: 35.5
CPU Temps at %100 load:
Core #1:58
Core #2:58
Core #3:48
Core #4:54
Average: 54.5

I haven't overclocked it, yet as I don't need it to be overclocked. Although the Gigabyte Smart Boost is on. (which provides %15 extra when needed.)

I got some pictures for you all. Funny I didn't pay attention the cooler master logo on the cooler so it's upside down.

About that IC Diamond paste, it only gave me about 2-3 C over the stock paste. So go figure. But it is cool to tell your friends your CPU is cooled by 7 carat diamonds. They are very intrigued by it.

As always, any comments, suggestions, donations (towards my graphics card upgrade) are welcomed. Thanks y'all.

i decided to wait on the H50 to see what the H70 is like, also considering the ECO but the H50 seems a bit better and easier to install

Thanks!

Yea - the SATA power cable serves both the HDD and the optical drive, and the combination of that cable's short length and the connector's orientation made mounting the HDD right-side up impossible without using a second SATA power cable. Everything was a tight enough fit behind the right-side door as it was.

I've had HDDs upside down before, and the only issues are dust and aesthetics, so I plan on making a SATA power cable that gives me a bit more slack later on.

8800GTX is not that big its small same size with ati radeon 5770 or a bit shorter. therefore it should fit nicely .

Aha ya i figured there was a reason, yup doesnt damage the drive so its all good. You might try making a hdd cover to hide the hdd and its a good place to put some spare cables if you had any, Cheers! Go Scouts

I would wait for the h-70 but at 129$ it wont be cheap, the h50 does just fine with the amd chips. Im thinking there should be a huge influx of sales on the h50 once the h70 comes out.
