  1. I am using a 212+ on my 1045t that runs at 3.4 Ghz. Max temp under 2hrs of prime95 is ~55C
  2. okay thats good and was it easy to fit to your motherboard?
  3. I had to remove the MB to install the backplate, but some cases have a big-enough cut-out that you can install the plate while the MB is still installed.
  4. You can install a TX3 without removing the MB, but your temps would be 2-3 degrees higher than a 212.
