i am VERY impressed with this cooler, ambient temp in my basement is from 22-25C and never saw it constantly go over 75C, it did peak a few Cs higher at the max but while i am folding 4 vmware instances i see it go the highest fluxate 74/73C for Core 1, Core 2 is 72/70C and Cores 3/4 are 68-70C. Worth more then the 30$ spent on it.

What were you using before? Do you have any temps as comparison?

Sounds like you might have a hotter chip than the ones we've seen results on so far.

I was using the stock heat sink before, which was giving me 76C-74C temps at stock speeds (with intel turbo enabled as well). I am happy to see that i can be at the same temperature (a degree or two cooler actually), running 1 .2GHz faster and went from 1.8k to 2.4k ppd per core, and only for 30$ i'm very happyw ith it

edit: i think my ambient temp is closer to around 25C

Okay it took me while but here are my results CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ vs Prolimatech Megahalem. The rig is the I7 in my sig @ 4ghz on a tech station with ambient 20-24C. Will only post load temps because idle showed hardly any differences. All load temps were obtained by using 8 instances of Prime 95 small fft. (hyperthreading enabled)

Load with 212+ with stock fan in push=75-74-70-71C

Load with 212+ with stock fan in pull and Scythe "SLIP STREAM" 120mm Case Fan 110 cfm) in push=73-73-68-68C

Prolimatech Megahalem with single Scythe 110 cfm fan (same as above) in push=69-68-67-67C

Prolimatech Megahalem with Scythe 110 cfm fan in push and a Scythe 68 cfm fan in pull =67-67-66-66C

The noise is actually tolerable considering the tech station is right beside me.

I did not test that on the tech station, but I think it would drop the temps a couple of degrees. I originally had the I7 inside a case in a mediocre ventilated spot and when I replaced the Coolermaster fan on the 212+ with the 110 cfm Scythe fan the temps dropped by 2-3 degrees.

I did not use any of the data from those tests due to the less than optimal placement of the case (under a desk). When I transferred the I7 to my tech station the temps dropped 8-10C just by switching locations. I had 1-120mm & 1-100mm case fan exhausting and 1-100 mm fan blowing to the cpu from below the DVD burner with the side of the case off. The supplied fan with the 212+ is actually pretty good. The Megahalem temps were all taken on the tech station.

hey stoanee, thanks for taking the time to do this and sharing it with us. Very interesting indeed. Most telling was this bit:

212+ /w dual fans vs PM with 1 fan(same fan as 212+) - and the results speak for themselves. Epic.
Are you planning on doing anymore comparisons with other HS or maybe with a wc setup...I think I recall you might switch to wc?
