I previously had a Hyper 212 plus and almost had the same temps, is the Hyper 212 pus and V8 on par with each other?
When the CPU is at 90c, I noticed that when I place my hand at the rear fan of my case (Antec 902) the air coming out is not very hot, is it normal?
I am thinking of either the CPU temp readings are wrong OR the cpu heat is not being chanelled efficiently through the heatsink.

Use a different software.

Put your hand next to your CPU/Mobo and see how it feels. :)

Imo the 212+ is the better cooler.
No the air won't be noticeably hot or even that warm exiting the 902 from the rear exhaust.

I think I just wasted money and effort in replacing my Hyper 212 plus. I spent almost double the price of the Hyper 212 and didn't get any improvement. I should have just bought the V6GT or spend more money and bought the NH-d14 instead.

I am a little worried about buying another cooler because if I will buy another cooler, I hope that I could carry it over to my next build which will be Haswell. I don't want to upgrade to the upcoming Ivy bridge. I know it will be a big improvement but my upgrade would be much worth it if I skipped sandy and ivy bridge.

I agree with you with regards to your current platform = no reason to upgrade atm.
If you bought a Noctua cooler retention hardware is supplied for free when new platforms are released.
