Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO Club - Page 387

post #3861 of 6633
Hi guys,

Is it normal that the Hyper 212+'s top assembly (radiator + fans) can be rotated few degrees? The machine was assembled in January and I just discovered this while trying to clean the case.

It rotates relatively easy by hand, looks like it can go all the way to 90 degrees (so it will blow vertically), but I tried only few degrees. The computer is working great, no problems whatsoever, moderate temps and no crashes. i2600K + ASUS z68 gen3.

I'm pretty sure I haven't put too much paste (the one that comes with the Hyper), and I tightened the screws super tight (in a cris-cross patern).

I have one, see my pictures for proof. Can I be added? Before you ask, yes I'm going to reinstall it the right way. (vertically & fan facing right?)

Hi guys!

I know it'll probably seem weird, but I only joined Overclock.net to ask a question regarding Hyper 212EVO...

I recently bought one, to replace my Hyper TX3, because I thought that TX3 provided insufficient cooling on P4 Q6600. It turned out however that my temperatures are STILL quite high, they go all the way up to 71C on Intel Burn Test (maximum stress level), and 63C on Prime95. 71C is for the cores #0 & #1, while 68C is for the other 2 cores, #2 & #3.

Furthermore, just to point out that my CPU is overclocked to 333FSB, 3,00GHz and it usually idles at 44-45 Celsius.
VID is 1.3250V and max Tj. being reported is 100C (CoreTemp)

Eventually, "Intel Burn" reported a successful test, everything worked out OK on maximum, except for the high temperature issue I mentioned above.

Do I have to be worried, are these temperatures normal for 212EVO, or should I try with something else? Thanks in advance & please add me to the 212 group. (will provide a proof, picture if necessary)

I'm not pro but temperatures are pretty hight but nothing to worry about. Kinda wird... 45°c iddle I had with my stock fan and o/c to 3,6 ghz. With evo it's iddling overclocked at 29°c so I guess something isn't right with ur pc. Maybe case is not ventiled, maybe cpu is o/c to hight, maybe thermal paste is not as it should be uh. u should wait for some1 smarter biggrin.gif

According to many ppl, my Q6600 has a lot of "room" for additional overclock, and 3.00Ghz is considered the lowest point... Anyway, while playing GTAIV, it usually reaches 60-61 Celsius, which I STILL think it's too hot, temperature is almost the same as with Hyper TX3 with push-pull fan configuration.
What I need is someone who owns the similar CPU and/or cooler, 212EVO to confirm these readings. Because if they're not OK, I'm either going to ask for refund, sell the cooler & buy something bigger, or re-install 212 & try to mount it again with different thermal compound.

I have a big aluminum case, Coolermaster Cosmos 1000, with at least 5x 12cm fans blowing in all directions, 212 is firmly attached onto the CPU, screwed all the way down & using stock CM thermal compound... For any more technical questions, plz feel free to ask smile.gif

I had a Q6600 in my last rig, with the same cooler in the same exact case and had about the same temps as you. I don't think you have anything to worry about, they look about right to me. Enjoy.

EDIT: You never did state what your ambient temperature is.

I've had the Hyper 212+ for months now and the first time I installed it I made the rookie mistake of using too much TIM (I was clueless and used the whole tube CM provided lol facepalm). Anyway, I thought this was the reason why I was having poor idle temps (40-43c). My loads temps were fine though.

Anyway, I finally got some Arctic Cooling MX-4 and reseated the cooler yesterday. I definitely used too much the first time and it was a bit of a pain cleaning that up. Anyway, I used the 2 line method with a lot less paste, and fired her back up. I only saw an improvement of 2c at best at idle and load! It was basically the same temps. Disappointing. mad.gif

It seems like most people are getting idle temps of low 30s with the 212+ and i5 2500k. My ambient temp is ~28c.

I want to try mounting it again. When I seat the cooler should I just let the weight do all the distribution? When I did it yesterday I gave it a bit of a wiggle.
