How about I send you an old 160 Gb WD Caviar Blue instead?

I know how that performs.....I'm offering my testing services for FREE on the new 840 Pro. I'd really hate for you to fire that thing up and be disappointed

All jokes aside, after you get these upgrades done, you will have a system that will last you quite a few years to come! Keep us posted on your progress, and enjoy the experience!

Alright guys, I finally got the Coolermaster Hyper 212 plus today and just finished installing it. Installation didn't go to badly and things seem to be working fine. The average core temps at idle are all about 30 to 32 degrees, which is around 8-10 degrees cooler than with the stock cooler.

I want to use Prime 95 to run a stress test and check out the high end temps, but was wondering if I needed to wait for the thermal paste to set before doing that.

Good work! No you don't have to wait for the paste to cure. Running Prime will help it though. Let it cool once in awhile, then use it normally. Arctic Silver is said to take 200 heat/cool cycles to cure.

OK guys, here are the results of the Prime 95 stress test. Needless to say I am very pleased with the results, considering my stock Intel CPU cooler failed the test within a couple of minutes.
