Let us know how it performs on your chip.

I have the CM Hyper 212 + and it keeps my i7 860 under 70c while running prime 95 small ffts. It is overclocked to 3.8ghz with 1.3vcore

Hey guys, I just got a couple of CM R4 fans from NCIX (thanks AkG) but I am not sure if I have them set up the right way. Should I have both fans so the backs of them are up against the heatsink with the front visible or should I flip the one nearest the back case fan and have the back part visible? Oh, and one other thing, since the fans are only 3 pins is it ok if I connect one to the CPU fan header? Thanks again, I'm just a little confused with what push/pull means.

If you closely on the sides of the fans, there will be little arrows. One shows direction of the blade and the other direction of the air. Have both fans setup so the arrows on both are pointed in the same direction (e.g. both fans arrows point towards the back of the case). That way one push's air into the fin array of the cooler and the other sucks it out and pushes it away from the cooler.

Hi i just had a quick question. i have a msi am3 mobo and amd 965...i just installed the cooler master hyper 212+ cooler and was wondering if anyone could post some shots of the actually mounting nut and where it screws in. I have a gap between the cpu side and the mobo....in another install topic on this forum it shows it almost flush with the board. I couldnt get it to tighten anymore without the nut spinning and holding it was impossible. Did you all use a wrench or something to keep the nut from spinning in order to tighten it more? My biggest worry is tightening it to much and the screws from the brackets not being able to reach/and or crushing the cpu. Right now it seems secure and good but it looks nothing like
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus AMD Installation & Clearance
those look flush on both sides and with the screw almost completely through the nut...flush.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...this will be the 3rd time yanking this board out to fix this.

Can you take a pic of your install?

As far as securing the nut while you tighten the screw... didn't you get a nut driver with the cooler? If not, then yeah, you're going to want to use a wrench (or socket) to secure it for proper tightening.

ok i finally got windows 7 in and installed. what programs should i do to run tests on temps, stability of overclocks etc. right now doing nothing in "amd overdirve app it says i'm doing 33 degrees celsius...sounds horrible. going snowboarding then ill be back to rip out the heatsink and make sure i do it right this time. ill do the grain of rice method and make sure its fastened. question would be is it possible to overtighten the heatsink to the mounting screws or is there a built in stop mechanism.

again thanks

33c at idle doesn't sound absolutely horrible. what are your room temps?

For monitoring temps on amd chips I use coretemp.
