How effective is the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus cooler for core i5 750 ??

What speeds can be safely achieved using this cooler??

On my i7 860, I idle at 18 degrees celsius. This Cooler works very nicely...

I doubt it as that temp is even lower than the C2D! Could you post some pictures of the idle and load temp with CoreTemp or CPU-Z?

It seems you are correct. According to CoreTemp, I get an average of about 22 deg. celsius. Still not too bad for a $25 cooler?

Not too bad? No, that's excellent! The temp shown is what I get from my C2D with stock cooler at 0-2% load!

WOW, I7-8xx is amazing. Shame on i7-920 in either temp or performance!

I am glad that I didn't get my hand on the i7-920!

Can you also post the temp after 10min running of prime95 if possible?

Hmm Interesting Results...

So what overclocked speeds can be achieved in core i5 750 so that the system can run for long duration[typically 48 hrs before next restart] safely..

my system do keep running for long hours....

The expected config is :-

1. Processor - Core i5 750

2. CPU Cooler - Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus

3. Mainboard - MSI P55 GD65

4. RAM - OCZ Platinum Series DDR3 1600MHz @ 1.65V CL 7-7-7-24 P/N - OCZ3P1600LV4GK 4GB Kit http://www.ocztechnology.com/produ [...] al_channel

5. Graphics Card - Sapphire ATI 4890 1GB

6. Cabinet - Coolermaster CM690

7. SMPS - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W


I need to know that what overclock speeds can be achieved with this config and still be able to run system for long hours..

To optimus2009:
If I were you, I would search the the maximum OC others get and then begin with 500MHz less than that, inceasing 100MHz each step until it becomes unstable. Furthermore, check the OC sticky!

Optimus2009:

I think you will be able to achieve 3.8 - 4.2 for a stable OC. I have the same setup and was able to get to 4.06.

I'm sorry, I had fallen asleep and now I'm at work. Later today I'll post those temps :)  .

I also forgot to mention, I added an extra 120mm fan to the sink, so I have 2 rather than the 1 fan it came with. That brings the price up to just below $30 I'm sure.

To the OP, I would say to look here for some I5 overclocking: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tom...

era86 - Nice temps, what is the ambient temp of your room - 68 F or colder i'm quessing. Reason that I ask is that the Minimum core temp has to be at least a couple of degress higher than ambient temp. (PS ambient is normally shown for 3 to 4 ft off of floor, and the ambient for a case set on floor will be a few degrees cooler)

Mine is at 3.8GHz and idles at 34C "50% fan speed" on speedfan. With prime 95 it only got up to 44C max "100% speed". MSI GD65. Rosewill Wind knight case.

for a 24/7 nice oc 3.8ghz is about the sweet spot.

mine it linpak and prime stable at 4ghz however a little too high voltage for my liking. its 3.8ghz at reasonable volts and reasonable temps on a cheaper smaller cooler

Sorry for the late reply! My room temp is roughly 70F average.

Here is the pic of the 860 on load on my machine:

That is very similar to what I am hoping to build, and I wanted to know how well the Hyper 212 fits into the CM690. Are you able to use the case side fan slot?

Also, do you place your Corsair fan up or down?

Thanks, rather basic questions but would be very useful to know.

1. Since Hyper 212 plus is 2.6mm lower than V8 which can fit into the CM690 as shown in the picture, the 212 will definitely fit into the CM690.
2. As you can see in the picture, the Corsair PSU's fan is placed down. Besides, I place my PSU's fan down as well in my HAF922 case which has a PSU ventilation hole significantly lower than that of the CM690. Thus, you shouldn't have any trouble in placing the PSU fan down.

Good luck on your new build! :)

Andy,
I'm playing with both CPU-z, HW Monitor, SpeedFan, and PC Probe, and at the moment I would sooner believe PC Probe’s temperatures than HW Monitor or SpeedFan, because they are reporting a MB temperature of 17-18DegC – which is lower than room temperature, and it does not fluctuate with load. PC Probe is reporting a MB temp of ambient+7DegC at idle with my fans on low, and does go up some on warmer days or under extended load.
I’m wondering if the generic monitoring freeware properly converts particular Asus board’s MB sensors to the real temperature. I have an Asus P7H55D-M EVO.

What leads you to believe that the 3rd party monitors are more accurate on Asus hardware (not CPU-reported temps or fan speeds)

Your thoughts?
