For best results, high RPM, high static pressure fans are going to be your best friend. Some great ones are Yate Loon D12SH, CM R4, CM BladeMaster(my personal fav cheap yet kick ass fan. This is the on CM puts on their 212+. blademasters are/were available at the egg), Sycthe sflex G, Scythe sflex F. Any of these will give great results.

You know mark that CM service are pretty open I am pretty sure they will send you new screw for the 212. They have been open to replace physical damaged case few time in the past few months so give them a try;)

As usual very nicely written and an excellent review AkG. Yesterday in the thread of Megahelms vs Noctua d-14 when you posted, you gave me a strong hint that the review is coming soon, well it's here :p..

It's very big for sure and expensive, it does give Megahelms the run for its money. But that Titan Fenrir performed admirably well..

Thanks for the review sir, oh before I forget you guys are are doing everything to attract more and more different thinking people, including your new open bench really shows that reviewers here don't just do what they want, they hear the criticism some folks throw out as long as it's constructive and put it to good use. You guys are the best!!

haha! That either means an all-in-one watercooler like an H50 or Asetek equivalent.... or maybe just something you can put S-flex's on... maybe a new Scythe cooler that has S-Flexs' included? sweet!

Maybe one of the new Zalman CNPS10X - FLEX family? well...let's see what they are cooking for us. That would be nice if it could be a cooler that I don't even know the existence:P

It sure can be a tight fit. East to west, I had to remove the HS off one the OCZ Reaper. But for north south...HS removal isn't needed on the one OCZ Reaper.









Yes wire management sucks. But this rig is for gaming...not a show horse.
