Whats the difference in having the fans on manual at 100% on all fan headers vs plugging in to it regular fan header. I assume the CPU fan header is just a dictated fan header just so when the cpu need more air the MOBO knows which header to increase?

The 212 + is PWM fan (4 wire) For 30 bucks for the cooler it was a cheap tester. I'm seriously thinking about cutting my case so I can do the switch without taken the mobo in and out every time! lol
I was just indicating that setting cpu fan to max 100% 24/7 in BIOS and plugging your D14 fans in there is the same as plugging the D14 fans into any other fan header on the motherboard; they'll be at 100 percent. If you leave the BIOS settings for the cpu fan on auto, it will adjust the speed of the fans based on the CPU temperature/load. Gigabyte mobos can do this with voltage adjustment or PWM. Some motherboards can only adjust the CPU fan speed with PWM. If they can't adjust speed by voltage, they may run the fan at full voltage 100%, not sure. I'm also not sure what's supported on your motherboard.

Firstly, what're your load temps? Idle temps don't matter unless they were like 70c.

Also TX4 is A LOT better than AS5
I second that. Reduced my stock cooling temps by 15 degrees.

I ran out of the TIM that came with the D-14 because I felt like I couldn't get it right.

The pea method does not cover the entire CPU..and logically speaking it seems best to cover the entire cpu to get best heat transfer no?
This is wrong, when spread out it creates airbubbles
