Hyper 212+ second fan

Hi i just ordered a hyper 212+ for my i7-920 build, just gonna oc to 3.2 so no need for anything better, but my question is that i have a coolermaster silent 120mm fan from a friend i think its 1200rpm and 44cfm and i don't know if i will gain anything using that as a second fan for push/pull and if i do should it be pulling or pushing, thnx

More about hyper
  1. may be you interesting in www.frostytech.com review all HSF , you can see compare & proof!
  2. Well you might see an improvement, but your improvement will be minimal. If I'm correct, the 212+ stock fan is a 2000 rpm pwm fan. Lets say they both run at there max speed of rpm, the 1200 rpm is still slower than the 2000 rpm logically. Ideally you want your two fans to be of the same RPM or well yeah, same RPM.

    This should give you an idea, but they used the same fan for both fans.

  3. stock cooling enough for OC 3.2 , just Add fan for HDD, NB, SB , and check circulation air out & In, always monitor with HWmonitor Pro software.. + CPUI-Z,
    i use stock colling for OC temp max 58C Oc 3.5Ghz test OCCT 4Hours all ok
  4. ^ Yeah but OP already ordered the heatsink, he was just wondering about the fan :P
  5. remember the saying "something is better than nothing"!!! Assuming you are getting it free slap it on... If it improves or not it doesnt matter... its free!!! remember to put the second fan in a pull configuration only since its low RPM...
  6. yeah hyper 212 With SECOND FAN rpm 1200( it's OK) maybe need small Service with clean, Oil for this fan and than Check in BIOS : it must position DISABLED SMART FAN, Enable Shutdown Temperature Set to 60 or 70C , Check temp via HW monitrorPro www.cpuid.com , test with prime, OCCT, Intelburntest look how fulload temp if under 60~70C your CPU safe if over 70C Downclock your OC / default check temperature again ..
  7. I bought the hyper cause it's summer time here and temps even at stock are kinda hot so for 25$ i said what the hell i may even try to get to 3.6 if it stays cool enough, im gonna try it pulling and see temperatures
  8. 3.6 Ok, but u always routine check your temp & don't over volt extreme for CPU Vcore (cause Hot temp), I do OC 3.6Ghz with Stock Colling but Fan 1800RPM, wow.. nice very very noise and my temp 61C no problem...
  9. dude I have mine running with 2 fans, you need it. The dust that builds up clears up a little with the 2nd fan.
  10. if second fan not wort forget it, just use 1 fun for Hyper 212 for maximum RPM, don't worry about Dust , clean Cooler with detergent (must carefully) aa.. 3month 1x & replace new thermal paste, if fun too noise clean too & add small oil for bearing fan, important keep your temp below 70C, i think 1 fan for Cooler more enough for 3.2Ghz-36Ghz

  12. ^ OP said he got the fan from a friend, not that he is going to buy one.
