Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO Club - Page 229

post #2281 of 6664
I'm using it on my SB rig. It's an i7 2600k. I'm gonna have to mess with it a bit.

Update - Prime95 going for 15 minutes now. Sits at about 44-46c. I'd say that's pretty dang awesome!

At some point I am going to remove my 212 and put some aluminum tape across the gap that is between the fan and the fins. I'll let you know if it helps.

I hate to be the one to spread the bad news but Newegg's 212+ price just hit $50.
buy.com still has it for a better $30 shipped.
Places in Canada (NCIX etc.) still have it for lower $20 shipped prices. I'm about to buy another one for a friend.

With the price being so annoyingly high now (honestly, you can get Scythe Mugen 2 for a lower price and that is so much better), I may stop recommending this heatsink altogether and commit myself to the Xigmatek GAIA. 3 heatpipes due to positioning performs better than 4 anyway.

The demand is so high for these things that CM can probably get away for raising the prices.

till they realize they stopped making profit due to the price rise.
It's a bit of a stupid move on their part.

Why rise the price of something thats selling good and have a potential of slamming into a wall with it not selling and people looking at other companies that have better for less?

At the point you may as well save a little more and buy the D14

I might leave the 212+ for a CM V8.

I would recommend you to return and exchange the CM PSU. Read the reviews for it.

Ok, maybe someone here can give me some advice on temps and the cooler...

I picked up a Hyper 212+ for my SB build, but not sure whether it is sufficient for my needs now. At stock with a i5-2500k (so default 3.3ghz) it sees temps of 30c idle but 56c under load in Prime95 or IBT. Whilst admittedly my room is usually around 27-30c, the case has 2 front intake fans, a side intake, and two exhaust fans at the back and top back, so this seems hot to me.

Overclocked to a measly 4.2ghz it was getting up to 65c under load. Again seems pretty hot to me that. It could be the airflow in the Fractal Design R3 case isn't ideal (front fans hit wall of HDD enclosures and I can't use the bottom fan space due to the stupidly short and therefore messy XFX PSU cabling) but do those temps suggest that either the ambient room temp is a problem, or that the heatsink needs reseating? Sadly I was daft enough to use Arctic Silver for the TIM not the stuff supplied with the cooler that I read here was actually better, so maybe it is the weak link?
Edit-------
Hmmm actually wondering whether the board on auto OC settings (as per the Hardforum guide by an Asus tech) is making the vcore far higher than needed. Wonder if that might up the temps a bit.
