i7 950 + Hyper 212+

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I just bought a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ and installed it. I ran Prime95 for ~15mins and my temps were around ~60 for stock setting. I overclocked to 3.8ghz (166 x 23), 1.225vcore. My temp reading is now ~80. Is this fairly high? I'm using Artic Silver 5 for thermal paste. It's my first time using it, but the thing seems pretty dry, like not runny. Did I get a bad tube? I cleaned both the heatsink and cpu before installing, i applied AS5 to the cpu, only a thin layer. Is there anything I can do to lower my temp?

Thanks.

Two things. As5 needs to be applied in a narrow vertical line in the middle of the CPU. Not quite top to bottom. Middle 3/4s.

Second. As5 has about a 200 hour curing time.

Id make some adjustments to you application and wait awhile and let us know.

Oh one more thing- the 212 is an awesome cooler. Nice choice!!

That looks about right. Get a better thermal paste though. AS5 is old now. You can add a second fan to the cooler. Also 3.8Ghz is probably all it will do in that cooler maybe 4Ghz but its pushing it. Try to stay below 80C.

Thanks for the quick reply! I applied the AS5 by using some plastic wrap and putting on a thin layer. That's not the correct way to do it? Something is wrong with my Hyper 212+, each time I want to take it off, I have to remove the whole backing to do so because the bolt is stuck on to the base. It took 3 tries before I was able to get ~60 for stock setting, before it was ~70-80.

I was running a 212+ on my 980x at 4.16 full out folding with one fan at sub 60- with ic7 diamond though in an hafx. Frankly I was startled by how good it was if you gave it the means. But yes there are better coolers and better paste - but you could certainly do worse.

As for the paste- just google images for "apply as5 i7" and you'll see the image of specific application method. Or upgrade. Generally with ic7 for example a pea sized glob dead center is preferred. Need a big pea though with 212- the way the pipes go through it absorbes a bit more than usual and doesn't spread as much.

Well first and foremost how is your case air flow? Second like others have said you better off with a different TIM ..ex Arctic Cooling MX2- MX3 - MX4, Shin Etsu ETC.

For that cooler the best option is to use the grain method. Avoid 2 parallel lines or 1 line or happy face method what eva.. The grain method will not yield air bubbles, Also make sure all the fasteners are properly attached.

A picture of case and internals would also help us to guide you.

Anyways Good luck and let us know!

I will take a picture of my case tomorrow. I have an NZXT Apollo, I know it isn't the best case for airflow out there. I should have notice that and buy an Antec 902 instead. But I would like to not have to buy a new case. I will try reapplying the thermal paste on the heatsink itself. Hopefully I can keep temperature around the low 70s, then I'm happy

I found AS5 to be HORRIBLE on HDT heatsinks, not sure if anyone else noticed this, but I had AS5 when I first mounted my 212+ and temps were a bit let's say... crap, like 55-60ºC on a 750 stock settings. I removed AS5 applied the paste that came with the 212+ and the temps went to the low 50s. I know AS5 needs cure time but, I've used it on non-HDT heatsinks and the cure time doesn't drop 5-8ºC.
Use MX-3, Gelic GC Extreme, Shin Etsu. I found Gelic GC Extreme to be the best TIM I've ever used.

I concur with ^

It's not the greatest but it's not as bad as using Colgate. to be honest, I have heard of many of those mentioned above but I am a personal advocate of IC7 Diamond!

This. I love the Gelid GC Extreme I got with my Gelid review samples.
