Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO Club - Page 159

post #1581 of 6664
Greetings,
I installed my 212 last night. I was a little miffed because upon unpacking I realized that CM had neglected to include the bracket which attaches to the bottom of the mobo as well as the required standoffs. I'm currently using a generic set of standoffs and the factory mobo bracket. Will this create a problem?

Yes it will. You need to contact CoolerMaster Support about it or return it to the place of purchase and exchange it for one that has all of the hardware. I'm betting you ended up with one that was returned to the store instead of a new one.

Personally, I wouldn't run it without the actual CM mounting hardware.

Got it on but something must be jacked. Hitting 60C on a stock clock w/prime95. I applied a super thin layer of arctic silver. Perhaps not enough?

Just using the Arctic Silver could cause it. Use the TIM that came with it and see the 212 Faq (link in my sig) to see the proper way to apply it. The stock TIM is much better than Arctic Silver which takes 200 hours of a very complicated curing process to obtain it's optimum temps which will still be higher than the stock TIM that CoolerMaster provides.

You can basically see it in my video though starting at around 0:30

I was wondering how much this would affect temps and if its worth (or possible) changing.
thanks
If you go to page 154, I had my Hyper 212+ installed the same way you do. On the same page, I was informed by a user named "wooly" that the cooler should have no problem facing the back of the case on my mobo. Long story short, I went and re-installed my cooler just today and to my surprise it did fit facing front to back. So, I would say go ahead and have another look at it. Just a word of warning, you may need to move your RAM over to the other slots.

Does anyone have any real evidence to support thermal paste burn-in time? Allegedly Arctic Silver 5 drops temperatures a few additional degrees over the first 200 hours, but my temperature ranges today are about one degree HIGHER than I posted above. I've had the same experience with other CPUs and coolers.

Have you actually tried Arctic Silver vs. CoolerMaster's paste and compared temperatures?

Not directly. I stopped using AS5 several years ago due to the curing process and higher temps compared to Arctic Cooling MX-2 and MX-3 which I did do direct comparisons with. The CM ThermalFusion 400 gives the same results as the MX-2 and MX-3 so that shows it out performs AS-5. Every test I've seen in the past 2 to 3 years with one exception shows MX-2, MX-3, and ThermalFusion 400 outperforms AS5 by 1-3C. AS-5 hasn't been considered a top TIM since 2007, and even then it was questionable as to how well it compared to the other top TIMS. The only use for Arctic Silver these day is using Ceramique with LN2 and DICE bench rigs. AS-5's day has came and went.

The problem with AS-5's burn in is that you can't just install it and let it run or it will NEVER fully cure. You have to shut the system completely off and leave it off until the cpu and heatsink returns to room temp (normally 15 to 30 minutes or so) then restart it at least 3 or 4 times a day for 10 days for it to cure properly and obtain optimum temps. That comes directly from Arctic Silver, partly from their website and partly from their support department by telephone. It also needs to be cleaned and removed every 12 months or so necessitating going through that process all over again. It simply isn't worth it especially since it still won't provide temps as low as MX-2, MX-3, IC Diamond 7 or 24, ThermalFusion 400, or any number of other better TIMs.

Thanks. Next week I'll clean it off and try the stuff that came with the cooler. By the way, I've read about how to apply paste to the 212, but what about removing it? I haven't done it with a HDT heatsink before. Is it a pain to get out of the grooves?
