    Not asking anyone anything, but I think a passive (waiting for fans) heatsink holding my Q9450 to <60 degrees under load is rather impressive (prime95, like 2 hours).

    Well, I'm impressed :p

    edit: not overclocked... yet ;)

    edit again: I'm impressed because it was $40, not because it's world class :lol:

    60 degrees was practically idle temps for my stock cooler even with the bloody fan on. :thumbdn:

    So glad I got a proper heatsink.

    I doubt it'll be better than your nh-d14, that thing has a lot more fins/surface area.

    Don't. The Hyper 212+ is a great bang for buck cooler, but it can't beat your NH-D14. People get a little overexcited.

    Undoubtedly, and rightly so, but a lot of 212+ users choose it because they can't afford the really top-end coolers, and because they don't have any experience with those their testimonies tend to get a bit gushing, which in turn means that its true performance is exaggerated.

    Its also compatible with i5 and i7 which is another reason why i bought it. Its a hardcore cooler when you're only experience with cooling are stock fans.

    The Xigmatek SD1283 Balder is about $2 more expensive and comes with a backplate. I know this because I'm holding it in my hand. Just need to install it tonight. Has some changes though so I'm not sure if it's as good as the stock SD1283.

    Also off topic. I received a free E6300 that came from a dead computer but I have not had a chance to test it. Is it OK to put the heatsink on without thermal paste for about 5 seconds just to let it POST? I am running out of metho and thermal paste so I don't want to waste any if it doesn't work...

    Oh god you're right :eek:

    So glad I didn't end up with one of them

    My 212+ has screws and a backplate...

    Yup the 212+ uses the same backplate that my Hyper N620 uses and I think the same backplate CM uses for most of their coolers (like the V8).
    Actually installing the 212+ into a PC for a mate was easier than installing my much more expensive N620 but the backplate was still the same.
