If you DO get bored and look at pushing the throttles forward a bit more, get bored with AS5 too and take a look at some new paste. Also, grab another 120x120x25 fan and use the supplied bracket to put it on. As for what kind of fan? Well, that's another conversation! That'll keep you in the same temp ranges (remember, your AS5 will cure in about 200 hours or so and your temps will drop beyond that) and yet give you room to improve performance even on the stock cooler.

Additionally, if your clock is stable, then you could consider re-enabling some of those power saving features- that will help prevent your CPU from running at that clock all the time.
Haha thanks, I ended up using the CM TIM that came with the package, the AS5 failed to deliver good results 3 tries, but first try with the CM TIM got me this result. I don't think I want to take the heatsink off again... it's such a pain. I'll look into a second fan and work on my memories now.

Thanks for everyone's help!

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!!
if you apply tim this way to a 212+ it will only cover 2 of the 4 heat pipes.


op: best thing to do is apply a little bit of tim directly to the heatsink and fill in the small gaps between the heat pipes. use a old credit card to scrap away the excess. basically u just want to fill the gaps.

after gaps are filled put a blob of tim on the cpu then install the heatsink. personally with direct heat pipe contact, i prefer an X on the cpu. the X method seems to spread real nice.

but if you put just 1 blob, or 1 line without first filling the gaps, it will not spread enough to cover all 4 heatpipes.

He's already done that- mid-thread basically. Originally I thought he was doing the card method right onto the CPU.

I have a question on the 212+ cooler, if I add a second exhaust fan on the heatsink, it could only increase performance right? I have a weaker fan lying around that I plan on adding on the heatsink. Is this a good idea or should I just use one fan?

Thanks.

If by weaker fan you mean canary feathers strapped to a hamster wheel... then no. That probably won't work out for you.

Depending on the fan you're talking about if you're not careful there's a chance the fan on the push side overpowers it, and moves more air through the fins than the weak one pulls... this will create undesireable turbulence (I suspect) and actually work against your efforts.

Ideally I'd have an equal fan to maximize efficiency... but perhaps someone with more experience in physics could explain if you're REALLY going to use that old fan- whether or not it might be MOST efficient to have the bigger fan doing a pull and the weaker fan doing a push?

It might be neat to experiment with- frankly... but if it were me I'd go spend the 10 bucks on a similar fan and mount that. Or, for that matter, spend 20 dollars on two upgraded fans (check out the air cooling forum) and use those instead. NOW we're talking UPGRADE!

You alway have a sense of humor haha! But yea the fan came with my case, it's pretty weak. I just didn't want to throw it away if I could do something with it. I'll check around to see what most people do with the cooler.
