Windows 7: Cooling

If you want some nice, cold temps from air cooling, I recommend a Zalman cooler.

Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS9900 NT 120mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

This one is nice and big, but take your pick, they are all nice

EDIT: I personally have this one:

I max out around 37C today, and it's about 22-24 C in my room

The problem with the suggestions is that they are kind of like comparing apples and oranges. I guess that I can infer what kind of reduction to expect from HS/F to another, but not what to expect going from a top end HS/F to a CPU water cooler?

After posting this thread, I realized that I had installed backward from what I intended, with it sucking, rather than blowing, so I just reversed it. I ran another encode to load the processor, and again was surprised that the max temp ran 4 degrees hotter than before, @ 58 degrees. That is contrary to any reason that I understand, because the HS/F is oriented toward the top of the case, which has a blowhole fan. One would think that the cooler fan blowing toward the blowhole would be cooler, rather than it pulling in the opposite direction. The more that I experiment, the more confused I get.

What fan speed is the cooler running at?

It is supposed to be running at 1600 RPM, but since my motherboard has two CPU connectors...one 4 pin and one 3pin, and the manual specifically states that the 3 pin connector is to be used with a 3 pin fan, fan speed is not sent to SpeedFan, so I could only guess.

I looked at the NewEgg reviews and the majority of people seem to be satisfied with the performance of the cooler. So please make sure you're following the thermal paste application instructions for AS5

p5bdkw,

You changed part of your question substituting a link. However, I do understand how to apply the thermal grease. The only thing I did differently this time is to apply it to the HS/F first, so that I could work it into the seams between the heat pipes. In any case, I do not believe that the reason for the temps is the grease application, and it definitely doesn't account for the temperature rise when I reversed the direction of the fan.

Seekermeister, you're spot on. Just covering the bases.
Yeah, it's kinda odd that you're getting those kind of temps in the HAF 922.
Since you don't know what speed the fan is spinning at, maybe it too low.
I'd monitor it from the BIOS and maybe adjust the fan speed to a higher speed in the BIOS, if possible.
