Thank you as well Kelly for all your help! I couldn't have done it without you. Installation was pretty simple because you guys had fully prepared.

Looks like a great rig LittleJay.

I should have asked for advice from these guys before trying to install my cooler the first time. I wrestled with the thing and my mobo like for 3 hours straight, and once I got it done I had to start all over 'cause there was thermal paste all over the place. Lol.

Post some pics of the case in "Show us your Rig"!

Thanks Bungee18!

I had another fan that was the same size as the CPU fan that came with the Hyper 212 plus, so I decided to install it on the opposite side of the CPU cooler to help pull air through it. As a result, I now have stable core temps at minimum CPU usage of 28 degrees, which is 4-6 degrees cooler than before. Well worth the time and effort I think.

Well done LittleJay. I'm glad you have solved your problem. Sounds like very good temps you are getting now. Quite an improvement.

Ran into a little problem with getting a CPU Fan error warning in bios, when booting up my system. I finally figured out that the fan control settings were set to warn me if they dropped below 600 rpm. And then I noticed that at idle my CPU fan runs around 560 rpm. Since 600 rpm is the minimum setting in bios, I had to turn it off and now I don't get the CPU fan warning on boot up. Just another little learning experience!

Arctic Silver 5 is conductive and capacitative and can cause serious damage to your components if installed incorrectly, also, it cools worse than the top dogs, which are:

Noctua NT-H1
Arctic MX-4
Tuniq TX series
IC Diamond
CoolLabratory Liquid Pro(liquid, not a paste)
