Hyper 212 help

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So as the title indicates, I am using a CM 212 in a new build and currently OC my 2600k to 4.8ghz. Using Prime85, stock case fans and some cheep-O CM brand blue LED lights "to match the case", I am fluxuating between upper 70's and mid 80's.

Now this is my first build and first time OC....so I can only assume that 4.8 is good, but I dont know about my temps. I could reapply my thermal paste, as I didnt follow any set instructions but rather just applied and spread a thin layer on the bottom of the sink. I could try different fans, but dont know if that will do anything extra. Heck, I dont even know if my temps are good for this product.

Anyway, if someone could give me a few pointers, I would appreciate it.

what voltage are you putting through it... the voltage affects the temps greatly on these chips

Whoaaaaaa

I'd never even consider overclocking a 2600k to that speed on that heatsink. You're using a nice budget cooler, but that's all it is.

You want your on load temps to be hitting 70 max. You shouldn't expect to get great overclocks and great temps with "cheap-o" fans and heatsinks.

My voltage is 1.390

concerning the capacity of the heatsink and fans is the prime reason why I made this thread, as I do not know what I should expect from the 212.

Voltage is miles too high for that cooler. If you went to 4.2 then that should be reasonable.

If you reapply your paste (which I suggest if you just kinda spread n stuck haha) use this guide:

I don't know anything about the new cpus, my 212 can get my i5 750 to 4.0 at about 70 degrees but I don't feel safe with that.... It's an awesome cooler for the price anyway!

take a look at this club to get more help with the 212+ the later pages will undoubtedly help. Tone the voltage down for sure and add a second fan if you like...but it will only help about 2-4c

My second fan brought me down 7 degrees, I bought a second blademaster

well dropped my voltage to 1.380 "the lowest i have gotten it without blue screening a few minutes into prime 95". at this voltage, I am seeing mid - upper 70's with a few peaks into the low 80's before dropping back down. all in all, if I could drop 5 degrees, I would be very satisfied. The question is, can I get 5 degrees with a change of fans?

You need to drop your multiplier. You're OC'ing miles too high.

Drop it to 4.2Ghz until you get a better cooler.
