Installing coolmaster hyper 212 plus Tags: Cooler Master Hewlett Packard Components Last response: June 19, 2012 10:44 PM in Components Share plate June 19, 2012 3:28:09 PM Hello all, I am very new to computer building and not a real tech guy in general but am doing my best to learn. I recently upgraded my comp case to the AZZA hurrican 2000 using all the parts from my store bought HP. Specs: HP e92207 amd phenom II x4 windows 7 64 premium gtx 570 hd 850w power supply I want to install a coolmaster hyper 212 plus but the mobo (foxconn aloe h-rs 780-u ATX) - only has 3 pin fan connectors while the hyper 212 has 4 pin connectors. I found this page which shows you can connect the 4pin to the 3 pin mobo - http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs... So my questions - is this correct? is it ok? and are there any considerations I should take into account if I do this? CPU temps 30c-49c range while gaming. Thank you for your advice in advance and yes there are plans to upgrade mobo, ram, cpu in the future when funds permit.

Other than the extra noise, which may not bother you, it will run just fine. m 0 l Related resources Cpu cooler Xigmatek Dark Knight or Coolmaster Hyper 212 Plus - Forum Antec 900 and coolmaster hyper 212 plus - Forum Help - Installing Hyper 212 Plus - Forum Weird lag/pauses in game after installing COOLER Master Hyper master 212 plus - Forum Installed the hyper 212 plus - Forum Can't find your answer ?
