So I caved in and bought a 212 EVO. Yay!
I installed nice and fairly easy, with the help of some Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste.
I don't know if i applied it correctly. Or if it is enough. I mean, by reading all the threads around and posts in this thread my temps should be lower than what they are with the cooler.
From some experimenting last night, and after getting my processor to 4.2 Ghz (don't know yet how i did it exactly
), after an hour of Prime 95, my temps were around 60-63 over the cores.
How does that sound.
Also during just normal windows usage the temps jump around a lot between 30-40 range. Low 30s when I kill most processes and high 30s when browsing and listening to music and such.
I'm asking about the thermal paste also because 90% of the time Core 0 has the highest temp while Core 3 sits @ 3-4 degrees lower.
