I am sure the answer is somewhere inside this thread but searching couldn't find it.. CPU Pea size BB or Cross X method for MX-4 for Hyper EVO? Thanks!

i did cross method and have great results with my 212EVO.

i dont think there is any one definitive method that is best because everyone has personal opinion about each one. there is a video one youtube that shows how the TIM spreads from each method

Personally, I'm in favor of a rice grain amount. The size of a pea is easily underestimated, see here, a pea is huge! A rice grain is all you need, it'll easily spread all across the CPU.

The reason I don't like cross or line methods is that it is really easy to overdo it. IMO, with the cross method, you always overdo it (unless you have some special device to apply it).

edit: the surface of the EVO is also much smoother than on the Plus. With the Plus, I can somewhat understand arguments for a two line method, but with the EVO, it'll spread just fine.

yeah. i found it a hassle the entire process of installing a heatsink. primarily the part of just seating the cooler and fiddling with the bracket to get in positioned to start screwing it down especially with the cooler sliding around a little bit because of the thermal paste. my lack of experience working with computers probably is the main factor as to why it was a pain for me probably. really makes me want one of those CLC like the new H80i. looks so easy to install. just soooo overkill for my pc lol

We'll I've done quite a couple now but I had exactly the same issues with this cooler. It was so hard to align (you barely have any reference whatsoever) that you almost have to move it around a bit to get it perfectly aligned with the screw holes. Turned out OK in the end though smile.gif

I've worked with a corsair H60 and that one is really really easy to install. There is barely any possibility for making mistakes, there's only one way to align it with the CPU and once you've done that it won't move around at all. I'm drooling over these new H80 models as well wink.gif, I'm just a bit worried about noise (waiting for reviews).

I have 1 fan on it atm. Got a good airflow setup in the case, so I'm not concerned about the fan.

Always concerned about the seating. As I said, I don't have the most steady hands, and am always unsure whether its seated properly or not. Whether the thermal grease line spread correctly or not. Any way I can check any of this without having to take it off, clean it, reapply, etc?

Because if it aint broken....last time I unnecessarily reapplied thermal grease, I bent a few pins in my socket (longggg story). Never going to unnecessarily do that again.

BUT! If I know it is incorrect, I'm more than willing to invest the time into correctly seating it. Its jsut a bigggg headache. My case is older, doesn't have a mobo tray. Meaning it is much harder to reapply the sink, as I literally need to take the entire build apart

SO! 30C idle, 60-70 load, Voltage ~1.20v, 4.1ghz (41 multi), does this sound normal on the 212EVO? I feel like this is a bit high for this OC, considering people on stock do similar ones and have comparable temperatures...

Am I simply expecting too much from the Evo?

Also I am oing manual voltages now. I was enjoying that auto, but was getting stability issues when it would scale the volts too much/little. So I went back to old school: manual everything. Thanks for the advice regarding that btw.

i think you are expecting too much maybe. those are the temps i get on my current setup but i have a 3770 at 4GHz. i usually stay in the low 60's under load while folding but sometimes ill get WU that is bigger or whatever and my temps have made it up to 67. i have only gone up to 70 when running a stress test like prime95

Thanks a lot amigo. I thought that might be the case. But as I said, I get a TON of "cooler seating anxiety." I figured I was expecting too much from a 30$ cooler. Once again though, my hands aren't steady, and it wouldn't be the first time I improperly seated a cooler. I also am always worried that I **** up the AS5, because I never put the cooler on straight, meaning I need to do a good bit more than a "quarter twist" to spread that AS5.

No lie, I actually had a dream last night that my 212 EVO fell off because it wasn't seated! And that it "slipped off" again after I stuck it back and rebooted, and I FREAKED because I effectively fried the cpu. Weird dream, I guess that seating anxiety is real to me!

But yeah, I get 70C after P95. Just had been hoping to get a bigger OC. I almost went 2500K for this very reason, I love OC'ing on air. I ended up convinced that a less OC'd 3570k is just as good as a higher OC'd 2500k.

Thanks again mate!
