    Well it's actually on my E8400. The DK is still cooling the Q9450 alright. I may one day put the 212 in my main rig but as of right now it's too much of a hassle since I wouldn't OC the Quad anyways.

    Anyways, I've got some results:

    E8400 @ 2.0GHz w/ horrible stock cooler
    Idle avg - 47C
    Max load (BOINC) - 66C

    E8400 @ 3.0GHz w/ Hyper 212+
    Idle avg - 35C
    Max load (10 Prime95 iterations) - 42C

    So as you can see, there's a friggen huge difference. The 3GHz run with a more intensive stress test didn't even bring it to the old 2GHz idle temp. Now don't think all Intel stock coolers are this bad (although they may be). Mine had an uneven base do to a tardnugget lapping attempt.

    Here it is. I didn't want to have to mount it that way but the NB heatsink wouldn't allow it to go vertically.

    Very satisfied overall. Big thanks goes to Cecil for hooking me up with it for a great price.

    I will try to get a good OC on it as soon as I find out what's cockblocking every overclock on every Intel CPU I've ever used. I'm missing some option that needs to be enabled, disabled, or changed. But, that's a story for another post.

    It's a real nice board. I love all of the BIOS and physical board features. But, as I said I'm not able to run it successfully with overclocked settings. Not even at something really low like 3.2GHz. The memory has the right ratio thing going on so it's not trying to run at some super high freq. and the PCIe freq. is at 100MHz. Basically the same stuff enabled as on my AM3 board, yet I have no problems there. I've been having the same problem with my UD3P for a year now. Haven't been able to find a solution.

    Na, haven't got a vid on the tube, I don't go near it
    I'm sure you weren't implying anything, but here you go:

    Killer setup!

    Hopefully I will only have to wait until Friday. Newegg likes to take their sweet ass time. But at least the prices are good.

    Here is my Athlon II X2 250 up and running. Do these things run cool? Default clocks/voltages it's running peak 33ºc on a passive Mega :eek: Full load!

    passive always heats up over time, do what you can to get some slow airflow over it and you'll lower the peak value a ton.

    even something like a slow 70mm fan can make a very big difference.

    Interesting umm can i ask why your PSU is in backwards if it's just for the LED lighting then grab one of these Silverstone FN181 LED fans

    [​IMG]

    then you can turn that PSU around and get some cool air flowing through it

    Well the side of the tech bench has that Antec Tri Cool 120mm, it's blowing towards the board and base of cooler so it' keeps some air moving. Right now load is 28ºc.
    Yep, but not in use at the moment.

    You'll love the RV02 it's the same case I have and as Scam has aswell :toast: just one small thing though those FN181 fans aren't speed switched like the ones that come with the case they sit on 700rpm constantly

    hmmm maybe if you put the fan up so it's not attached at an angle you might get a little more airflow or attach an gentle typhoon fan to the HSF or a similarly quiet 120mm fan

    well it's designed to be at an angle to blow across the HDD which is on a rack right below the mobo this way both HDD and mobo get air. It's running super cool though, no need for even a quiet fan. I'll see what's up during the day tomorrow though.

    shame you don't live near NZ I'd throw one of the 180mm silverstone RV02 case fans at ya to use it can be switched between 700 and 1000 rpm

    Sounds normal to me. I had my X3 435 with 1.4v on core and cpu-nb and under my D14 never got over 40C full load for hours running P95 in a 590. This was with only the middle fan being the 140mm with the LNA added. Adding the front 120mm didn't make any difference. At idle, the temperature was the same as the motherboard temperature sensor even with the extra volts. :laugh:

    I wish I would have ran it passive just to see if the 140mm made any difference. With two 140mm on top and the 120mm exhaust on the 590, I'm sure there would be enough airflow to not even need fans on the heatsink.

    and the cost to send it to you 3-10 working days $29.77 :eek: bet you could buy one for less over there :ohwell:
