Hi, I recently purchased a CM Hyper Evo212 to cool my FX8350, It has mild overclock to 4360 mhz.

Prior to the cooler installation with stoke fan max temp with full load was around 44c. After the installation Max temp with full load is around 43c... Thou is very quiet now, I'm wondering if just 1c of "cooling gain" is what I should expect of this cooler.

I think I might have let the base bolts to loose, should I tighten them more?

You did something wrong, your airflow sucks or there's a shez load of dust in your computer.

Did you apply new thermal paste? Did you wipe off the old gunk first?

Do you have any exhaust fans?

Have you cleaned out any dust?

Do you live in a particularly warm area?

The Hyper 212 EVO is the budget edition and I'd say it's cutting it too close for the FX8350. Like you mentioned, the trade off was sound, so if you increase the fan speed it will get cooler, but louder. I think it was PWM, so check the UEFI/BIOS settings for the smart fan.

I always recommend the TT Frio (any version) and some others for the 100W+ CPUs, since when you do OC, the power jumps a lot.

Cheers!

1.- yes
2.- Intake: Front, Bottom and side pane - Out take: 2 at the top and back panel
3.- all the stuff is new no dust
4.- Im from mexico, so that might affect: current room temp is hovering at 32c during peak hours.

Ya I'm starting to believe this is actually the case, I had no experience with custom cooling prior to this so I wasn't sure what to expect. Personally I'm more than happy the lousy noise is gone. Thanks!
