Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO Club - Page 481

post #4801 of 6633
Hey guys, just bought a Hyper 212 Evo yesterday for a 3570k rig, and I have to say I'm not impressed at all. I had a few questions about it, first is it supposed to be loose enough to twist on the CPU even when it is all the way tightened down? Is there any way to make it tighter? My temps are abysmal with it even at stock clocks, loading to 100*C easily. I already had to replace the fan after the first startup because it was hitting its own bracket and couldn't even spin.

I read through the manual a few times and didn't see anything about making it tighter, and I remounted it twice just to make sure. The base is perfectly flat though.

I am quite sure that you did not install the cooler correctly. You should NOT be able to turn it while it is installed!

Here's what might have gone wrong (I just installed this cooler today so its fresh in my mind): when you put the bracket on the cooler (not the backplate but the bracket on the side of the processor, with the screws on it), it should click into place thanks to a little pin. Then, when you secure the cooler with screws, this pin should make sure that the cooler is hold tightly in place (and doesn't turn). What you might have done is put the bracket on the wrong way, so that it did not snap into place.

Be very careful if you continue to use the computer in this state. Having improper cooling can in fact wreck your computer.

Good luck, and please note that I might also be completely off.

Edit: it is not a very clear picture, but is is indeed shown in the picture in the users manual, step 4 (for Intel sockets). They call it the 'retention plate', and the picture also shows the pin I was talking about. Also, I believe that when you turn this bracket 90 degrees with respect to the cooler, you should still be able to screw it down, but the pin does NOT snap into place in this case. This might be what has gone wrong in your case.

I will be reporting my pics and first impressions shortly.

Before I ask, I must say this "No question is dumb when things don't work".

Did you remove the sticker from teh bottom of your cooler? The little clear sticker that says to remove before putting it in your system.

I removed the sticker biggrin.gif

And the pin was in place, it was tight but I could still spin the cooler left and right when tightened all the way. The center pin was in the hole and the guide pin was in the notch, not sure how else it could possibly go.

should i worry about the hyper 212 evo dual fan on hanging position since if you have a case in standing position the only thing holding it in place is the motherboard. im curious if i should put additional support to lessen the weight taken by my mobo.

People are using heat sinks more than twice the weight and are having absolutely no problems at all. People should stop worrying about these things. If there's something wrong with the product they shouldn't even release it.

The 212 DOES have a little give when it is tightened down all the way. I mean a little though. You should not be able to turn it a lot. But, could it shift a millimeter or two? Sure. Mine does. Also, make sure the FAN WIRE is clear of the blade and make sure the 4 black plastic pads are covering the screw holes when mounting the fan on the cooler.

Hello gentlemen,

As promised, here are some pics of my spare rig with the new cooler installed.

First of all, a picture I took while building. I had to take the whole mobo out because the the CM690 does not have a CPU cutout. Ah well, I like doing these kinds of things so it wasn't so much a bad thing wink.gif



Now here's the cooler installed in the rig:



A little overview picture here. Yup, all of this runs on a cheap 620W CoolerMaster PSU. This PSU continues to surprise me, while I've never really heard great stories about CM PSU's. Also, 1x 6 pin PCI to 2x 6 pin PCI converter cables FTW tongue.gif. People really don't need as much power as they think, but on the other hand I feel like I'm getting close to the boundary.



A better overview of the PC. I was able to do some fairly decent cable management in the end, but the CM690 is a far from ideal case in this respect. Also, this is not the second revision of the case, and this one is still ugly gray on the inside. Anyway, I guess I'm spoiled by my Corsair 600T for my main rig. This case has served me well and still does to this day.



Just another pic:



Here's a pic from the outside of the case. I like how you can see the cooler through the fan mesh on the side panel.



Up close from the outside:



OK, so now some initial impressions:

This cooler has been very satisfying thus far. I gave my trusty old i5-750 a 3.5GHz overclock to start with (2.66 is default), and it is working out great. Idling at about 31 degrees Celsius (only slightly more than without overclock, which was about 29-30 degrees), and during my stress test I did not go above 77 degrees. This stress test was about an hour of prime95 (no errors). Basically, I think these results are pretty decent to start with.

Installation was also quite straightforward In my opinion. I've heard installation ease is not where this cooler shines, but I didn't have any problems with it. Hardest part was aligning the retention bracket with the screw holes while positioning the cooler on top of the CPU.

Little side story: I was busy putting some OC on my i5-750 when my computer shut of completely. I thought: damn what did I do. Turns out someone in the house created a short circuit which resulted in the power going down tongue.gif

Now comes the time of optimizing and going as far as I can. We'll see how this cooler holds up then thumb.gif

edit: by the way, I used Arctic Silver 5 which I still had left instead of the TIM that comes with the cooler.

my 212+ actually moved quite a lot when it was super tight, probably a good half inch turn total.
