Have I seated the cooler properly?Help Please!!!!1
Hey guys,just want to know whether my Hyper 412 Slim with dual fans has been seated properly.Here are my temps after an hour of BF3.FX 8350 is at stock settings with turbo core disabled.Anything abnormal in them?Thanks in advance for helping
Those temperatures are a step better than what you might expect from a stock cooler.
This may be due to the use of the stock gunk (TIM)
It could also be due to improper fan setup. Do you know if you're running push-pull or push-push? Make certain your fans are working together not against eachother!
Each fan should have a diagram embossed in the plastic as seen in the image: http://www.corsair.com/media/cms/Build_Logs/600T_BuildLog/Fan_Arrows.JPG
Although honestly those aren't bad temperatures, how high does it go after being under stress for a bit?
I have a setup with an old Phenom II 965 that ran all the way up to the 90's Celsius and idled around what you're at-- and it's still kicking after 4 years...
I think people worry too much when it comes to temperatures >:)
