Don't forget to remove the transparent plastic film in the new heatsinks copper panel
It can happen if we are too excited to install a new cooler

The biggest first step will be to install the new cooler retention plate on the back side of the mobo, unless it uses the stock plate which I kind of doubt.

Also appears that Coolmaster ships their own thermal compound in it's own tube. As mentioned save it and use a premium compound and with this design I would use a wipe technique with a plastic card or plastic wrapped finger to get a thin layer over and into the crevices.

Thanks for your input guys!

One thing interesting that I have noticed with monitoring CPU temps with Core Temp running on the task bar is that on my Windows 7 installation the temps average about 10 degrees cooler on all 4 cores than on my Windows 8 installation. I don't know if that is a glitch with running Core Temp on Windows 8, or if it does indeed require more CPU usuage than 7. I ran Real Temp on both installations as well and it had the difference in readings.

This is a different cooler, but the technique is the same. Hope this helps.

I've used this removal kit for years and it's top flight. I like the single pea size method, but as of late I prefer the single dot with four outside dots in a square around it method. With a heat sink with small gaps in the heat tubes like the Coolermaster I would then make sure to fill those gaps by using the credit card or plastic glove and finger coverage method but I'm sure all of these will work well as long as you use the less is more mindset.

The Arctic MX4 paste spreads out quite a bit more than other pastes so you have to keep that in mind when applying it. I've never needed more than a small BB or a grain of rice. Of course that all depends on the size of the CPU....socket 2011 would need just a tad more. For a socket 1155 CPU and that cooler, I would use a drop the size of a BB right in the middle and let the cooler spread it out.

If you find the Hyper 212 is not doing the job, you might consider this one. Google Image Result for http://www.tensionnot.com/images/images/Computer229.jpg

Thanks for the video! From the looks of that it seems a pretty straight forward. I can see I will have to place another order for the cleaner materials. I have plenty of coffee filters.

Kelly, the method you recommend with the Arctic MX 4 paste seems pretty much the same as the gentleman used in the video. I will try that way first, then monitor the temps closely and redo if necessary.

Thanks guys for all your help!
