I see everyone's picture has the heat sink set up vertically to exhaust to the rear.
I set mine up horizontally to exhaust through my top 200mm case fan. Temps look good. See any disadvantage to mounting this way?
Normally out the back is better, but the difference is typically only 1 or 2C so experiment to see what works for you.
A pair of R4's will more than likely yield higher temps than the BladeMaster fan that comes with the 212+ and be noisier doing it. I recommend sticking with the Blademaster. If you want to do a dual fan push/pull get a second BladeMaster. The Blademaster easily outperforms the R4's and is slightly quieter.
A shroud shouldn't be necessary, but feel free to try it and report back with your results.

You technically joined on 09/02/2010 but were never added to the list. The new club owner was only active for a couple of days before abandoning it like the last one did so there isn't anyone to update the list. Consider yourself in the club and feel free to put the sig link in your sig.Edited by PapaSmurf - 2/16/11 at 3:35pm
