Just got a Hyper 212 by cooler master and after some trouble finaly got my computer up and working with it. After boot i check the temps with realtemp and it read 33c idle give or take, while unde load with prime its around 42-44c(ambient temps are 22-23c). to me this seems a little high or am i just smoking crack...? im using artic silver 5 also.

Yeah, AWFUL temps...

I mean water cooling often reaches just below those temperatures....

so for air to do just slightly worse than WC is absolutely horrendous

Figured out the problem...the vcore was set to around 1.4v :sweat: ... Now running @ 3.25ghz vcore 1.143 and temp around 43-44c, now i can see how far i can push it.
