CM Hyper 212+ vs. Intel's i7-2600K stock HSF?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just picked up an Intel i7-2600K CPU at MC this morning and also a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ as well. Unless I'm mistaken, the 212+ is significantly better and quieter than Intel's stock HSF that comes with the CPU, right?

Sorry for the newbie question, this is my first i7/SB build and coming from the Pentium 4 world... smile.gif

Quite. You will see an improvement over the stock cooler. Make sure you get some quality TIM, not sure if the 212+ comes with any or not.

Hyper 212+ is better cooling than the stock HSF set up. I cannont comment about the noise vs stock...I dont do Intel. About the same noise as my stock AMD fan, its smaller but spins faster. You should be very happy with the performance, and if noise is an issue, set the mobo to controll fan speed so its not ramped up at 100%(fan controller will work aswell). I would recomend getting a specific fan to fit your needs if this dose not work. The CM stock fan is nice(great flowing little bugger) but much better can be had for 10 bucks or less if you keep an eye out. I use R4 fans in push/pull FYI. hope this helps.

TIM is thermal paste? If yes, then it does come with good TIM. cool.gif

It is louder without proper fan control, as it on 100% I can hear it where I could barely hear my AMD fan. But once I opened up some CPU intensive apps, it would be quieter along with better cooling. I too, upgraded from the P4 world. Welcome to the world of fast computing smile.gif.

Yeah, wasn't too sure. I'd personally just pick up some Shin Etsu for cheap from SVC biggrin.gif

CM 212+ comes with a great thermal paste and the cooler it self is a great upgrade from the stock. Supreme price / performance as well.

Yes, your temps will be much better! I almost went with the Hyper 212+ but settled for the NH-D14. My temps were pretty high even with no overclock while using the stock sink. Also make sure your case has proper flow (intake and exhaust) which will also help lower your temps.

Thanks, all, for the suggestions and replies.

I think I'll likely be getting the Fractal Design R3 Define case. I'd love to have a Noctua NH-D14 or something along those lines but they cost as much as the case!! smile.gif I won't be overclocking initially but definitely will overclock some. Not gaming.
