Improv = you want 2 of the same to prevent any issues with flow.

Gingerbee = they are 90cfm so def good for rads. go to bestdirest.ca get them for 5.50


UPdate for me...

FInally got the 212+ yesterday, after a week. I put it in this morning. I'm running 2 C4 coolmaster green led fans with it. I'll just get right to it cuz all we want are the results anyways.
Now these results are on a crappy paste job (first time HDT user) and no paste burn in period.
I plan to take it out....lap it (heat pipes are lower than the block strips noticibly with a razor), and redo the termal paste job when I get my other 2gb of memory and 4870

I also use a TJMax of 95 for my q6600 because I see everywhere online ot says or ppl say 100 or 90 so I went in the midde undecided instead ( i at least know Im in a small range of where I could be)

This is also just a result of my hottest core....as my cpu temps in all programs seem to show inaccurate readings too high.

currently running @ 3ghz at 1.25v.........

at idle, stock intel cooler was about 35 C we'll say................with the 212+ it dropped it to29 C

at load, the stock intel cooler was 68 C ...........with the 212+ it dropped it to 53 C


So, ATM...i'd say for $40 bucks.....the 212+ and 2 C4 fans was a great deal. a 15 degree drop at max load is pretty sweet. and that's with a crap paste job, no burn in and with the HDT base possibly not in maximum contact with the CPU.


I am going to now take it to my max overclock and see what kind of temps I get.....I was able to get 3.6 at idle on stock cooling....
Im hoping for 3.6 and low 60's C @ max load...... best senario 3.8ish and under 70C @ max load would be sweet.....would then have a total beast machine with no worries.

I'll report back again

bottom line so far, great purchase....for great (cheap) price

I know high cfm is good i have ultra kaze's 2000 and 3000 rpm it's has to do with static pressure too i have just heard good things about these fans. and thank for the heads up at best direct time to price match that into my next client order so i don't have to pay for shipping on fans

ok so update.....

okay I pushed it to max OC but for some reason I kept crashing at 3.6 or over and didn't want to increase volts past 1.5
plus I couldnt be bothered to possbly sit and tweak to get it right for who knows how many hours.

max I got it to was 3.8 but lod would shoot the temps too high too fast....idle at 34C
3.6 was stable at just under 1.5v and temp were reaching 90C so I stopped p95 and didnt resume...idle at 33C

atm, settling for 3.4 @1.4 volts.

however i think that there must be some issue with the base like I said because my temps are too high for my liking and are different from tests in reviews
for example the hwc review...they were 3.4 @1.45v adn were getting 50C average loads.......but it was mentioned that max load were probably 5-10 degrees higher.
so that would be 60C well say

3.4 @1.4v i'm getting 80C at max load small fft after an hour+.....idle at 33C
first time I ran i got 75C after an hour but the second time...and for 6 hours last night the max temp maxes out at 80C on the dot.
My room is not hot, more on the cool side

so you see this is a 20C difference of what the reviewers were getting.
now I know that this cooler lost ground when high tdp was going but im using less volt and gettign way higher temps
so as of this moment i'm not really happy about that, not what I expected.

however like I said I am going to redo it and will lap it down so its nice and flat the whole way across
hopefully this is what the main issue is

other wise at least I only lost $22 bucks for the cooler if I decide to change if I dont get better results

ok i got it to idle at 29 degrees celcius and 48 degrees celcius at max load. I had removed and reapplied in a grain of rice method. Does this sound right for a amd 965 125w?

That is a Mistake, the ones you have are all Packaged Wrong. None of the R4 Fans are Rated for 90CFM. I have all 4 Types, and they sit at a Nominal 66CFM.
