Brand New Hyper Evo 212

Hello, I installed a cool master hyper evo cooler onto my processor yesterday.
I have followed all the steps properly and applied alot of thermal paste
The temperature is great it is at 30/31C
I am very happy with the noise and the temperature however there is one thing bothering me.

The smell -.-
I know that new components tend to smell for a few days, for example when i got a new PSU it smelled like this for 3 days
Is it normal that the cooler smells like it would be burning for a couple of days?

  1. I have to be honest. I have built dozens of computers and have never smelled anything burning that wasn't actually shorting out and failing.
  2. But nothing is hot, even I am not burning at 30 degrees celsius so how come a component that previously held up to 80 C can start burning ?
    I really doubt it will damage my equipment but i just want to know is it dangerous to my computer and how should i check which part is it coming from
  3. Op is smelling the china factory smell.
    Like you get when you buy cheap flipflops.
  4. I think i have found the source of the problem, is it possible that the smell comes from the back fan? it has stoped spining??

    When i installed the cpu cooler and was repluggin everything else i noticed that the small 3 pin plug was browny like kinda burnt but i still pluged it in.

    Should I unplug it asap?

    Yes, unplug it. If the fan isn't spinning/the plug is burnt then it shorted out somewhere and the fan is likely toast (but the system still tried to apply power to it - creating heat and possible your smell). Remove it, then I'd get a new fan to install. If that one does the same thing then your connection is shorting out.
  6. You didn't by any chance plug it in the wrong way. Did you?
  7. Sunder i am afraid i did :[
    lol silly me i was lacking space so i couldint even see which way im pluggin the god damn thing in
    but i replaced the fan allready ;] its good to have many computers around lolz
    lets hope the smell will go away in few hours

    Just one more questions, the new fan i installed is spinning quite fast, do you know any tools/programms to control fans?
  8. Speed fan is a nice fan control software...and its free :-)
