I think you mean P6X58D-E right?
Some may disagree with me, but, I think the Hyper 212 is not good enough to adequately cool an overclocked 1366 I7. I had one on my 920 DO @ 4ghz, ran two fans but still had load temps in the high 70's. I switched to a Megahalem (cooled much better but still too noisy), tried watercooling, (still too noisy) and finally to a Noctua NH-D14. With that I was finally satisfied as it brought my temps down into the 60's and was quiet.
