New CPU Cooler - Page 3

post #21 of 37
also sorry for the double post but i forgot to add,
only point it up if the top fan is blowing up (which most do anyways)

You've got a big case. It will fit any full size tower cooler, like a Silver Arrow or an NH-D14.

always remember the rule, heat rises. Its best to push it that way whenever possible.
Concerning aiming it up, what if you have a very hot graphics card like an old ATI 4870X2. I have a top exhaust fan, but I'm afraid if I mounted my heatsink blowing upwards, I'd be sucking more hot air through the heatsink from the video card than I already am. I guess I'd have to test it both ways to be sure.

well i have 2x120mm exhaust fans up top of my case, 1x120 mm on the bottom intake, 1x120mm on front intake and 1x120 mm on the back exhaust... so with that should i have it so its pushing it upwards through the 2 exhausts? and if it had it going up which side should i have the fan on the bottom or the top?

Honestly i would still say point itt up because either way the cards will still cause hot air to get to your cpu cooler because the air will still rise and get sucked in through the fan. Best to push it through faster by forcing it up.

It probbably wouldnt matterTOO much as long as the air is blowing out the top. Theoreticly though(on a microscopic scale) if you had the fan on the bottom blowing air up and out, the top exhaust fan may create a mini slipstream of air bettween the cpu cooler and the top fan which would aid the airflow.

ok so i have successfully installed the cpu however the temperatures do not seem all that better.... before on idle with the stock cooler using speedfan the temperatures would read around 40-45.... and with the cpu cooler they have only seemed to decrease by 1 or 2 degrees.

Whats going on shouldn't it drop it further?..... and also i realize that with some thermal pastes you need to wait for a few days for it to really work so to speak... but still i was expecting at least 5 degree drop. I guess i should also take into consideration other variables like ambient temperature, airflow inside case, number of fans etc.

But 2 of those i think should be fairly good... i have 5x120mm case fans and my cables are managed fairly well inside case however the temperature today has been shocking.

I dont know the ambient temperature, but going off the readings of a weather gadget it was supposedly 35C in the day about 25C now when i measured the temps of cpu.
If you could tell me if those temps are bad for a brand new cpu cooler or if i am worrying too much... and if they are bad how I can improve them.
Thanks in Advance.

PS: Iv attached 2 screenshots of the temps on idle and at max load with Prime95 (after a couple of mins):

It does seem a bit odd that you are not able to get your temps any lower. As far as i understand the phenom series should be about 10 degrees lower than that.
Are you able to take pictures of the inside of your case with the new cooler installed for us?
Also have you overclocked at all? (if so then that would explain the temps cause thats what it seems like but i think you already mentioned that you are running stock. I would check but its a bit annoying to do on my android right now.)
Try also running you computer with the case side off completely and check your idle/load temps like that. If the temps are lowered by that then there is somthing going on with yout case. Possibly a disfunctional fan or maybe dust buildup. Check for those. Ill wait for the pictures to jude but cable manegment plays a factor too. If the temps stay the same regardless of the side of the case been removed then the case doesnt have a factor in your temp problem.

ok... ill try a few things tomorrow but i cant really take pictures of the inside of my case (dont have a camera)....

Dont think it's a disfunctional fan because when i installed i checked to see if they all ran fine (which they did).... Dust buildup maybe but i clean my computer fairly regularly (aside from a few things that are hard to clean).

I also measured temps with and without the side panel on and they came back practically the same aside from 1C difference on the system... but everything else was the same ie. motherboard, core, cpu.

Corncerning overclocking i have never done it and probably never will the main uses of this computer are internet browsing, using word and other applications for studies and games ( Im a big gamer). It's not like the temperatures are bad at the moment its just i would think they would be a lot more lower with a brand new cooler rather than a few degrees.

Although one thing that i think is a lot better is the loudness of it the stock cooler was relatively quiet on idle but on load it would sound like a jet taking off where as the hyper 212+ is very quiet.

Any more advice would be helpful

This might be good for you:

The bottom of them isn't flat. Mine certainly wasn't.

(I didn't look at the video in this thread - YouTube is loading badly for me now, so I don't know if it covered it, but I'm running a Phenom II x4 955 overclocked under a Hyper 212+ and I idle at about 30-35C, even when ambient is about 20-23C.

A little higher when I turn the fan down, of course, but it'll keep me under 50C even when testing Prime95.

If you just want to use the stock mounting system, the Corsair A70 is a good choice. However, it only mounts blowing upward on AMD systems.
