OK. I have a i7 2600k with a cooler master hyper 212+. I have it overclocked to 4.5ghz. My idle temps stay anywhere from around 38-41c. But when playing a game say BF3 or Crysis 3 my loads go up to 59-60c. Now to me that is high. So i ask you guys what can i do to lower my temps? I have the fan running full speed when the upper temp gets to 47c. I only have 1 fan on the heatsink. It is mounted on there nice and snug. Help me please!



CPU: i7 2600K-Overclocked 4.5ghz
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe
Video Card: EVGA SuperClocked GTX 580 (Fermi)

Those temperatures are acceptable and great for a small air cooler like that. You could install another fan too.

Lowering room ambient temperatures are also a very big factor.

well i did a stress test and was getting loads of 70-74c. Is there maybe a better cooler out there? Or perhaps better thermal paste?

No i do not. How would i do the push pull? Is that just 1 pushing the air while the other one pulls it? If so do i want the one that pushes the air to be at the rear of the case or the front?

^ Correct. One pushes air in, one pulls it out. Basically more air flows over your fins. Push them out the back if the rest of your fans are pointing that way.

So have the puller in the rear and the push towards the front?

Yes. You want air to push from the front of the cash out the back. So a straight flow of air.
