I threw on a hyper212+ on my E8400 at 1.25v at 4.0ghz. It's not even warm with dual yates

Only thing I can complain about is the louder fan @ the same speeds on the 212+. I'm going to try the OCZ fan on the 212+ and see what kind of results I get. I'm also going to re-test the Vendetta 2 because I used to get similar temps with it but in the last few months it just went up, strange. Does anyone know if the vapors inside the heat pipes can go bad over over time?

Specs, testing environment etc...

e8400 @ 4.005Ghz 1.24v
Coolermaster Cosmos S with 5 GELID 120mm 1000RPM~ fans
MX-2 thermal paste
Ambient temps steady @ 23c
Where you using the OCZ Vendetta 2 with a backplate or the craptacular push-pins? Over time the plastic pins securing it in place can deform and even a small change in pressure can mess with your temps.

Backplate, the Thermalright one I think it was. Can't stand those push pins

I worked on my OC over night. Its at 4.2Ghz right now, same voltage, same temps etc. I'm liking this heatsink. But the bearing in the stock fan gets loud at 1500rpm, makes a ticking noise. Still haven't put the OCZ fan that came with my Vendetta 2 on it, but will do in the next few days. Should keep it nice and quiet and hopefully hit 4.4Ghz and keep it under 60c load.

for those of who has used CM Hyper 212+ and Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2, could you please kindly confirm the noise level? I don't seem to be able to locate some fact sheet online....

Thanks all :)

I have no experience with the AC Pro 7.

As for the 212+ on the box it says 13 - 32db / 600 - 2000 rpm. Its relatively quiet at idle by my standards and I built my system around silence, all my 6 system fans are running at 1000RPM~....the HDD's are louder. Anyways Once it hits 1400 you can hear it a lot more and past 1500rpm you can def hear it. Mine makes a ticking noise past 1480rpm. Not sure if the bearing is faulty or because its mounted horizontally. I'd recommend replacing the fan if your bothered by it. Like I said earlier in my posts I'm going to replace with the fan from my Vendetta 2 because it is quieter.

Im using 2 x Noctua NF-S12B FLX push/pull on my CM 212+ and it's quiet and cools well. Don't expect miracles from the Noctua fans if you go that way though. The single stock fan at 2000rpm cools slightly better than 2 x Noctuas at 1200rpm; but quiet is what Noctua fans are about anyway.

What would be a good second fan choice for my Hyper 212+? I don't really mind if it's noisy just as long as it cools well.

My first choice would be a 2nd blademaster, but they are hard to find now. My second choice is the coolermaster R4. They are great fans, similar to the Blademaster and reasonably priced over at ncix.

I've been looking to grab a new cooler since I built my new rig this past summer.
I've been just using the stock intel cooler.
From what I remember I got up to 3.6 and was able to stay idle....HIGH idle temps though, at least 3.5 I know...low volts as well stock I believe.

Anyways for last month been looking to just get a Prolimatech Megahelam and dual Noctua P12 1300's
But no one in Canada has it in stock....and if they do (tigerdirect, cough) they want god damn $100 for it before shipping and taxes.

I saw the 212+ review and thought ok....soon realised I should look at other reviews to gain a better opinion.

I figure I got a Q6600 as well and if i can get under 60C when I over clock 3.4 or above at full load...thats pretty damn good I think.



ANYWAYS, to make this long story short

I found the 212 plus for $23 CDN @ Bestdirect.ca

Since I wanted another fan, but was unable to find a matching blademaster (again no one in canada had them and if they did , way overpriced)

then I find what made me laugh out loud.....the next best thing....the R4 coolmasters....push 90cfm @ 2000rpm

$5.50 for one fan...I got 2

So, for essentially $40 I got what I hope will be a great performing cooler and to top it off I got 3 fans total, not that i need any extras (element G case = awesome airflow).....considering I was going to pay easily 120 -130 for Megahelam and 2 P12 1300's...I think that is a awesome deal.


If anyone is considering getting a new heatsink was I think this is a steal
And if it turns out not to be great....which for me I doubt since I have a Q6600 and not a I7 920 so shoudl do well.....ive only lost 40 bucks and could probably easily get it back by selling it

My plan from the beginning was to get this system and then overclock to the max.......instead of going the more expensive route of going next gen with I7 etc etc.....i just felt it was unnecessary and going with this rig ensured I could have it for at least 3 or 4 years while it still can be competitive with what being released game and sofeware wise.

This thing kills anything I thorw at it at stock so this thing O/C'ed to 3.5 + would surely last anyone awhile...unless you need the lastest and greatest at all times.
