Windows 7: Question about CPU temps

Be careful removing the old cooler, after freeing the 4 screws, give it some gentle twists before trying to pull it upward.

The 212 plus will need to have the gaps between the heat pipes filled in with thermal compound before you put it on. Also getting all the old compound off is important. Rubbing alcohol, 91%, is good for that and Arctic makes a remover that melts it off. Everyone has their own method, just ask and you'll get 6 answers on a way to apply it.

Will do, thanks for the headsup.

Thanks for that. It is good to know.

Too bad I already ordered the Arctic cleaners. I have plenty of rubbing alcohol sitting around and it is much cheaper.

Yeah, I was noticing that on my other thread. This is my first attempt at installing a CPU cooler and I hope I don't muck it up too bad.

Cool, the Arctic leaner and primer are better and easier to use. The two bottles will do about 35 CPUs.

Here's a Youtube with a cooler similar to the 212 which shows how to do the base plate. I put a rice grain size of thermal paste on the CPU, not a big line like this guy in the video did, a smaller dot spreads more evenly. The hottest part of the CPU will be the center.
