oh well, i figured it out anyways

im idling at 30C with my unlocked Phenom X2 560 (quad core) and its overclocked to 3.5

WOOHOO
Please read this about temps: http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/docs.php

In fact, EVERYONE should read it.

When it comes to heatsinks and aftermarket cooling, the best thing to do is to push your CPU as hot as you feel comfortable with the old and new heatsinks. The sensors are highly inaccurate at low temps / idle, but become more accurate as the temperature increases. Sometimes they have an offset error too though. Read the link, it explains it all.

the issue i have right now is that with core unlocker i dont see ANY temps, which is a problem

however, i can still see the temps, it shows up as a different device

so far, it gets around 60-65c under load from prime95. However, this is not exactly an accurate reading because i cant get a program to show me the true value. All i get is something else that seems to match what my cpu would be

either way, i think that gives me some overclocking headroom wouldnt you say?

I lapped my Hyper 212+ today, VERY carefully. I'm gonna post up a little guide on how I handled lapping a heatpipe cooler differently than a CPU. Not rocket science, but many are afraid to do it (or do it like a CPU and mess up), so I might be able to put some useful info up.

I am using the i5-2500k and the CPU is not lapped. Yet.

I'll try to get some pics with razor blade test, depends if I can get a decent camera.


=== Results ===

I did a 10 minute Prime small FFT run and I was careful to run these tests under the same ambient conditions. 10 minutes has seemed sufficient to get a steady max temperature in all of my overclocking adventures.

4.8ghz, 1.41v:

BEFORE (unlapped)
Arctic Silver 5 (cured): 78-80 (82 max)
Stock 212+ CM paste: 81-83 (85 max)

AFTER (lapped)
Arctic Silver 5: N/A
Stock 212+ CM paste: 74-75 (76 max)


Again that's just from lapping the 212+. And yes, my Hyper 212+ looked fine out of box, surface was even & flat - no real reason to expect anything wonderful from lapping the heatsink alone. So I'm excited .

Fun project anyway though, I enjoyed doing it regardless of the results or hurting my back from leaning over a glass coffee table lol.

Please be careful if you do it (see: http://www.madshrimps.be/vbulletin/f...eatsink-57924/) and feel free to PM me if you have questions.

What do you mean by that in bold?

And yes, certainly.

Has anyone else noticed how much air is lost from the top of the fan?
I covered mine with electrical tape which definitely helps push the air through the heat sink more, but I never tested temps before and after.

should look like THIS

EDIT
also made changes to the OP, maybe some of you can spot it lol
Here we go....... I was watching youtube videos linked to the Hyper 212 (unboxing videos and all) and I caught a video earlier this year where the 212+ came with a tube of paste in a plastic container with the product name and specs. I looked that up on Newegg and I think this it, this is what now comes with the Hyper 212+: HTK-002

All the reviews rate it pretty poorly and describe it as "runny" which is consistent with my experience with it.

Additionally, the Newegg reviews on Thermal Fusion 400 are very positive, and they describe it as more thick/viscous than anything.

I'm calling Coolermaster tomorrow to confirm this, and will update, but I'm very confident that its HTK-002.

Nice, I see you got the tape UNDER the brackets. Otherwise I was about to say that's gonna fling off immediately.

Even if you do this you should snap the fan on as low as possible allowed by your motherboard etc. Air over the CPU (or closer to the CPU), is good if you can get it.

I dont think you will actually see any benefit from it though. To tell you the truth, the fans just don't really yield much benefit in the end. The reason is just that air sucks at heat transfer for a lot of reasons. It has to be moving very fast to accomplish anything, and our fans just don't really get that fast. Also rerouting air at the top doesn't make a big change in CPU temp because that's mostly air blowing over fins at the top (which are pretty cool in most cases, unless the CPU is ultra hot).

This also made me think, and as a side comment I thought I'd mention:

The Blademaster fans seem to have a natural frequency around 85% speed (~1700 RPM). I think 70% is the optimal speed to run your fans at to provide good cooling but not unnecessary noise that you get at 85%+. The difference in noise is huge while the cooling benefit may be a few degrees C, which you can get from top notch thermal paste.

when you unlock cores the temps are disabled and not available or just aren't right.. You could get a heat gun and read the temps on the back of the mobo socket.
