Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO Club - Page 94

post #931 of 6664
The Hyper 212+ is a Heatpipe Direct Contact so the two or three line method is normally the best way to go. It depends on the number of heatpipes as to how many lines is required, but the 212+ has 4. See the bottom method on this guide. The single drop or line of TIM in the middle rarely works on them.

That said, I did some experimenting with my Hyper 212+'s and am having my best results using a credit card to cram a bit into the crevices then spreading a light coat over the entire surface of the heatsink base and not putting any directly on the cpu's IHS. Cramming some into the crevices between the heat pipes and the heatsink base surface is the key though. If you don't you tend to get air bubbles that prevent optimal heat transfer.

I just received my Hyper 212+ in the mail and it looks like a beast. I'm worried though that the CPU fan might get in the way of the first ram slot though. I bought memory that has some tall heatsinks on them. I've got a Asus P8P67 Pro 1155 on the way. Will the Hyper fit and not block ram slots?

TL;DR
Does a Hyper 212+ block any of the ram slots on an Asus P8P67 Pro with an 1155 socket? Does anyone have pics?

I don't know, but you can do what several people have done and mount the fan a bit higher up on the heatsink so it does clear. It doesn't have to be centered exactly. Having it raised a quarter of an inch or so won't have enough effect on it's cooling to matter.

You need to click on the User CP at the top of this page, then scroll down the left side to the Add System link and enter in your system specs in as much detail as possible. By that I mean 2 x 2gig G.Skil PC2-8500 CL5 ram instead of 4 gig ram, etc. That way we have some idea of what we are dealing with.

They were out of G.Skill when I ordered so I went with these huge guys.

Hi guys....

Im thinking of using a hyper 212 for my upcoming 2600k rig.

The cooler seems amazing for its price :S

I have a few questions.

1. Would it cool a 2600k @ say 4.5GHz maybe higher depending if i can achieve it.
2. I believe you can use push/pull setup do mega clips work on the cooler to mount the 2 fan?
3. Do you think its a good cooler? i know they is better but how does it perform again say a mega?


Many thanks

It's a lot better than the stock heatsink, but 4.5ghz is probably pushing it a bit. These are one of, if not the best bang for your buck heatsinks, but they do have their limitations. I think it would top out with reasonable temps somewhere around 4.0 to 4.2, but the only way to know for sure is to try it.

Yes. They include two sets of clips to do just that. One set is mounted on the included fan already and the other set is in the box along with a set of screws and rubber anti-vibration pads.

As I stated previously, it's one of, if not the best bang for your buck heatsink. It will handle an OC quite well, but it can't compete with the $60 and up (plus the cost of fans) heatsinks when it comes to extreme overclocking, but for the usual $20 to $25 with a good fan included price it's excellent.

It will also depend on the ambient room temp the computer is in and the case cooling. It will outperform an H50 and most H70s though, at least in their stock form and under the same conditions.

So I finally got my 212 plus, and its made a huge difference!

I was idling at 55-62 during the day and evening and my load temps were in the low 70's (for about 6months) now my idle temp is 35 (room at 20-25) and load them is 50max (so far).

Load results (currently)
Room temp: 32.8
Temp exiting cooler: 35.5
CPU temp 50
Other details: Cpu at 100% for 30min (at 3.0GHz)
Fans in push/pull config
Side panel off


Idle results (currently)
Room temp: 32.8
Temp exiting cooler: 35.5
CPU temp 45-46
Other details: Cpu at idle (10% usage) for 30min (at 3.0GHz)
Fans in push/pull config
Side panel off



Downside: is that in my Antec 900 I cant have a side fan installed, in touches and cant close case.

I must add that I put a little bit to much paste on the cooler. I put a tiny bit on cpu, and took almost all of it off (to fill in any holes I thought (has heat spreader)), then put on the cooler and filled in the gaps of the heat pipes and took most of it off (should have taken a lot more off), then I put two THIN lines and DIDN'T rub it in. And when I put it on some came out between the cooler base and cpu contact region.

All in all install was rather easy, will post pics if anyone wants.

Not a downside at all. Having a fan there won't do a darn thing for you anyway, at least not anything good. It would be blowing directly onto the top of the heatsink and sides of the fans so if anything it would just disrupt the airflow causing temps to go up instead of down. You are better off without it.

Hmmm you have a point, but I like the idea of fresh air into the case and over the gpu, but right now my side is off so no real worries.

Does anyone know the quality of the thermal compound included with the Hyper 212? I'm either going to use that or some AS5 that I've had for a couple of years.
