Hyper 212 + i5 760

Hey I was wondering if anyone can tell me for sure that I would be able to OC an i5 760 to 4.0 Ghz using a hyper 212?
Or will I have to buy a better cooler?
Thanks in advance.

More about hyper
  1. very very ... enough keep your temperatur, Coolermaster Hyper 212 is a 60mm tall heatsink, and it's comprised of just the right mix of copper heatpipes and aluminum cooling fins, one of Best TOP 10 HSF for Intel AMD, if you prefer Hyper 212
    better than 212 use Noctua
  2. it has what coolermaster refers too as "heatpipe direct contact" technology for efficient heat conduction, plus high-density aluminum fins for maximum heat dissipation.

    its an alright cooler but looking at the way it stands you might be seeing a lil high temps since its a 8 total heat pipe design...... although i like that you can add a 2nd fan for a push pull configuration like i have on my V6GT witch is very good since it increases the amount of overall air flow that you cooler is putting through its self.

    What are you looking at budget wise?? maybe i can help suggest some coolers that may be better suited for you overclocking needs :D
  3. Hyper 212 very Cheap high peformance , this just Comparison test
    result OCCT Linpack Intel Burn Test temperature of game maximum peak . Overclocking 4.125 Ghz
    V6 GT Min Temp = 25 V 8 Min Temp = 26 right?

    V6 GT Max Temp = 55 V8 GT Max Temp = 58 right?

    You should have a well air-circulated case in you want to control temps using hyper 212 on i5 760 4Ghz OC... Atleast one 120mm fan blowing air in and one 120 mm air blowing air out and if possible, like tx-jose says, 2 fans in push pull config...

    Sorry to be confusing but I have changed to a i7 950 for various reason mostly I don't like the lga 1156 mobos.
    but anyway same thing, i7 950 to 4 Ghz, My case is a HAF 922.
    I am adding a 2nd blade master fan (same one that comes with the 212).
    and for a cooler I wanted to stay as cheap as possible because I'm almost right at budget already using the hyper 212.
  6. you should be fin even on the 1366 socket.....like ur planning add a 2nd fan maybe even hop onto newegg and find 2 120mm fans that have better specs than what you have on the hyper 212 right now and make it cool even better :D
  7. I see you have already bought the cooler... Hyper 212+ (trust me its a good cooler for the price/performance) has mixed reviews when cooling i7 9 series OC'd cpu's...

    then again since you have already bought it, then try it on and see if it cools... you have a good case... slap it with lots on fans all around and push pull the cooler with two good fans...

    if you can still change it (like you changed your i5 to i7) then you would be better off with a better cooler for a few dollars more.........

    No, sorry for the confusion. I do not have the cooler yet, I'm planning my build and thats just whats on my list at the moment (always changeable) hyper 212 + 2nd matching fan. the D14 Noctua or however its spelled is a great cooler.. but its extremely ugly haha.

    Can you suggest a fan? This is where I suck is CPU Coolers and Power Supplys :x
  10. well the fan that it comes with is about a 70CFM fan if you want an upgrade coolermaster makes this 90CFM fan for $10. you wont see a ZOMG ITS SOO COLD!! reaction but the better the air flow the more efficient you cooler will be to a certain point...after that your just going to have to buy a better cooler :D

  11. http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm <- The de-facto link for current air coolers.

    The 212 is a good choice; many people use it. It's all about case air flow and choice of fans.

    tijijiji it has the intel stock cooler as #5 on the cooler for low noise and efficient cooling lol :kaola:
  13. Best answer
    NH-D14 is expensive considering your tight budget...

    try this for $55 - Spire TherMax Eclipse II... it comes with two fans and is a highly rated cooler... best bang for buck IMO...

    or for less than $40 you can get ZALMAN CNPS10X Performa or CORSAIR A50 but they perform in the same capacity as hyper 212+...

    Right, for low noise, it's decent.

    Remember, every one of these top performing air coolers take into account EXCELLENT case air flow. For a heat exchanger to work, you need moving air to optimize their potential.

    Why do you think car radiators are placed in the front of the car, behind the front grille? Airflow...
  15. like we been saying rubix.....lol all about overall air flow!!! :lol:
  16. I think that it is overlooked. Not every case has good airflow, and even ones that potentially do, get cluttered with cabling, etc, or hindered by using budget, low CFM fans.

    Case airflow is the elephant in the room; it's always there, never addressed and a huge problem, but everyone assumes the problems originate elsewhere.
  17. slapping in an extra fan for air intake worked wonders to my overall cooling... My previous notion was to have maximum exhaust and assume that air would be sucked in from vents... how wrong i was!!!
  18. very true......people dont assume that cable clutter is an issue with air flow but you should see the difference in air flow from a well cabled system to a poorly cabled and cluttered system...i was surprised when i did first hand.. i saw 5-10*C drop in overall temps!!!!!

    thaht work AWESOME if your PC was traveling 60mph and having the "ram air" effect :lol:
  20. Case clutter can severely cripple a case's airflow. Even if you aren't a neat freak about cables for aesthetic reasons, air flow and cooling can be hindered by poor cable management.

    Thanks for that link, I couldn't find that Cooler on Newegg.
    What do you guys think about the V8? I could fit that in the budget?
  22. the V8 is an ok cooler but it only has 1 fan for the push/pull of air and it sits right in the middle. i was thinking about the V8 but bought the V6GT and dont regret it not one bit!!! :D
  23. If you're going to oc a i7 950 to 4Ghz i would spend some dough on a cooler.
    Yeah! the 212+ is a great cooler for an i5 but not a i7 9xx series at 4Ghz.
    The V8 isn't much better then the 212+ especially for the price difference.
    If you don't like the D14 get a TR Silver Arrow it's a better cooler imo.
    The Silver Arrow is smaller then the D14 in dimension,cools slightly better, and is quieter.

    http://www.vortez.co.uk/contentteller/articles_pages/thermalright_silver_arrow_cpu_cooler_review,9.html
    The V6GT is also a good choice and sound levels can be adjusted by lowering fan speed.
    Another really good cheap alternative is the Corsair A70.
    http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1389/6/
    Personally i'm a little bias towards TR products.
    Great cooling performance and quiet.
    The Venomous X line is also very good.
  24. ^O.P. said he had an i5.

    Thanks for all the info there!
    So far.. I think I'm leaning towards the V6, I can tell it will fit in the case but how do I tell if a cooler will block a RAM slot or not? the mobo doesn't give like dimension around the CPU, I really suck with dimensions. But it height wise I know it'll def fit in a haf 922 because its 10" wide.
  28. i can take detailed measurements of mine if you want....but i have it mounted a lil different than its suggested :D

    Sorry, I mean how do I know if it will fit on my mobo without blocking a RAM slot or something (I don't have the mobo yet, buying all at once).
    I know the dimensions of the V6GT but I don't know how to apply the width and depth to see if it will fit.
    This is the mobo I'm getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128423
  30. ur mobo is gonna be a x58......... i dont see a problem with v6GT fit there... you should be worried if its a cooler like silver arrow or nh d14...

    http://www.ninjalane.com/images/cm-v6gt/Imounted_complete.jpg

    But seriously... newegg has the v6gt at $70... you can get much better coolers like TR venomous X or megahalems for that price...

    frozencpu has the Spire TherMax Eclipse II at $55... this is a better cooler, top ranked at http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm , has Direct Touch heatpipes, comes with two fans... and you were on a tight leash with the budget... i dont understand why v6gt???

    this is turning into the hardest most confusing part of my whole build :P

    and mostly I was trying to buy it all from one spot, newegg doesn't offer that Cooler. I don't know the reputation of frostytechs website as far as returns etc..
  32. Okay I went with the Spire Thermax Eclipse II after reading reviews. (not just from frostytech) thanks everyone!
  33. Best answer selected by vindictive.
  34. if you want from newegg then go for
    Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B for $62
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835242001
    and
    Scythe 120mm "Slipstream" 1900 RPM Fans for $9 (No PWM; so control with speedfan)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185060
    or
    Cooler Master Blade Master 120mm PWM Fan for $10
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103069
    or
    Xigmatek 120mm XLF PWM Fan with White LED for $11
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233045

    Go for one fan right now blowing air through the cooler to the case fan at the back... the cooling should be fine... if need to bring cpu temp by a couple more then slap in another fan... you have flexibility...
  35. oh ok... you were fast in deciding... good choice and all the best with the rig... and thnx for the BA
