Picture Guide (Click to show)
1- Unbox the Hyper 212 and put all the components within reach.

Note for LGA 2011\2011-3:Skip Steps 2 & 3.








2- Lay the motherbord face down.



3- Now place the backplate on the back of your cpu socket.

Note For AMD: Unscrew and remove the Bracket & Backplate that came with the Motherboard.
Note for AMD: Use the opposite side of the backplate.



4- Insert the standoffs from the opposite side and screw the nuts just a bit tight. Be careful not to damage your PCB from the excessive pressure.

Note for LGA 2011\2011-3: Screw the LGA 2011 Standoffs (Shorter ones) directly to the CPU socket itself, this means no need for backplate\nuts.







5- Flip the motherboard Face UP!




6- Time to rub the CPU clean and add the thermal interface material.



7- Unclip the fan from the heatsink. Note that the fan brackets are fragile and easy to break.




8- Remove the protective sticker from the base of your heatsink.
Note: Apply enough thermal paste to fill those grooves that formed during machining. Adding too much WILL NOT improve cooling performance.



9- Trial Allign the X-Bracket on the standoffs and make the required adjustments.



You may need to remove the ram for easier installation.




10- Place the heatsink on the cpu in the desired orientation (Hor/Ver).





11- Fold the X-Bracket, Insert it throught the heatsink, Open it again, and screw it in using a chriscross pattern one turn at a time.

12- Clip the fan back on and connect it to the CPU_FAN header on your Mobo.





Ram Clearance:






Done !

FAQ (In Progress) (Click to show)
Q: Is it better then stock/reference cooler ?
A: Yes, It is.

Q: Is it expensive ?
A: No, It's the best bang for your buck as a budget cooler.

Q: How much TIM (Thermal Interface Material) should I apply on the CPU ?
A: The thinnest layer possible to fill the gaps which can't be seen by normal eye and ensure an even surface for maximum heat transfer.

Q: Is it OK for the heatsink to wiggle even after tightening the screws all the way down ?
A: Yes, You can slightly rotate it in place, but it's movement is restricted by the bracket.

Q: What's the difference between Hyper 212 Plus/Evo/X ?
A: 1- Plus: 2 versions, Fan clip and fan bracket version, Uses Blademaster fans.
2- Evo: 2 Versions, Single fan and dual fan (Turbo), Uses Xtraflo fans.
3- X: A modified Evo, 4 Gen bearing fan, redesigned fan blades, X-vents & air guide.

My BIOS reset when I installed the evo and I had to reconfigure it to be able to boot to windows (SATA-III Mode).

check your bios. you might have the same problem.

That's actually 1 drop from the included paste ! (Rice grain method) when I first applied it I thought I should've added more, but every time I remove the heatsink for cleaning or reseating I think it grows bigger every day tongue.gif

EDIT: A friend of mine bought the same cooler (the 1 fan version) and he didn't know how much paste he should apply ... So he APPLIED IT ALL !!! lachen.gif

I went to help him, I removed the heatsink (It looks like it's been glued with cement) and cleaned all the TIM from the cpu and kept the TIM on the heatsink !!!

I feel bad for you ... If you look to the bright side: You will have a fresh install to test your 212 (OC and benchmark).

don't forget to add your OC and your benchmark results to your sig rig (like I did with mine) I'll be waiting. thumb.gif
