OK, got through day 1 of putting it together. I didn't have a huge amount of time so only got case fans in, cpu & cpu cooler onto mobo and then installed the mobo.
The only concern I have is that I accidentally twisted the heatsink when I was putting in a screw and had to turn it. I hope I didn't smear the thermal paste too bad. Is that middle screw on the hyper 212 evo suppose to be loose like that? I should've probably bought a liquid cooler.

I never used the 212 EVO, but if you tightened all the screws fully you shouldn't have any problems. I've used the NH-D14 and a heatsink Similar to the 212 (Xigmatek Gaia), as long as they are fully secure they are pretty hard to screw up. If the temps are bad, you can always pull it off and repaste it.

Yes you should be ok. It will spread anyway.

I was considering putting a Hyper 212 EVO into a Fractal Mini R2. My concerns were:

1. If it will fit. The height is. 159mm The case shows it allows up to 165mm. Thats only 6mm clearance and assuming Fractal have taken into account the motherboard height .

2. If it blocks any ram slots. In your photo it appears to be doing so frown.gif

Anyone put a 212 EVO into a Mini R2?
post #10645 of 16068
1. It will fit!

2.Of course it block firs slot, only if you have tall memory like corsair vengeance but if you have lp memory, it fits like a charm

sorry for my english biggrin.gif

Thanks for the help so far ladies and gents. I can't believe I'm almost freaking done. All those years of being intimidated for nothing.

I do have another noob question about installation of my power supply in R4:

should the fan on the Seasonic SS660-XP2 point downwards or upwards?
Also, I selected hybrid fan mode. Seems like that would be optimal.
post #10647 of 16068
You can have it both ways since you only have one GPU. I have my PSU pointed upwards because the filter in the bottom is a pain to take out.

I have a define mini with EVO212+ It fits in the case fine, but I do have to use the LP ram, but that could be more motherboard specific not necessarily case specific.
