  1. Will installed the FX8370 chip an added another fan to my CM 212 EVO and the temps for the cpu stays at 31c w/4.0Ghz and motherboard at 28c , I've been doing a lot of searching for a better air cooler , I have been looking at a Phanteks PH-TC14PE for replacement of my CM 212 EVO maybe this fall.
  2. How long does the pump to a Cooler Master 280L Last before one has to replace it? and who has the oldest pump still running to this day?
  3. How long does the pump last on the 280L . Who has the oldes CMN 280L pump?
  4. Is the CM Nepton 280L better than the Nepton 240M both should fit my Phanteks Enthoo Series case {} I did notice a big price list difference .
  5. I just got a FX 8370 chip for my system it should come in next week, I just wanted to make sure that my CM 212 EVO with 2x120mm fans will be ok even when I let the motherboard do the fast OC tweak in auto. I myself will not be doing any OC in manual I have no knowledge on how too, maybe when I look into that I will get a better cooler. Right now I have a 200mm fan in the front and a 140mm fan in the back of my case I can fit 3x 120mm or 2x140mm on top so I will be looking at doing that first.
  6. Phenom II x4 965 G.Skill Sniper 1866 CL9 16GB DDR3 ram Cool Master 212 EVO cpu cooler Sadartooth R2.0 motherboard EVGA Super Nova 850w Gold PSU MSI R9 280x PSU 1 SATA DVD Drive SATA III 6GB 1T drive SATA 500GB drive both drives on port 1-2 set on AHCI on in a Phanteks Enthoo Series case! I would like to upgrade my Phenom II x4 965 Chip to a FX 8370 only because I don't have no knowledge of over clocking if I went to a FX 8320 an I don't want to run a FX 9000 series because of the cooling system thats needed. My son plays his games on this system and Wife does here crafts , I just surf on line or stream movies. What do you think? Right now my Cool Master 212 EVO has been running with 1 120 fan and I have another in storage brand new , I plan on adding the second when I get my FX chip would this cooler be ok for a little OC? from my motherboard. I will be adding more fans on my case since I have plenty of room on top to add ether 3 - 120mm or 2 - 140mm fans.
  7. i have a old Asus MOBO and the cpu header for the fan is right next to the cpu and I can read the temp on my BIOS and I have a stock fan right now
  8. just a pea size paste is needed if too much an it will be hard to take off from your cpu , I learn the hard way and ruin my Phenom II x4 965 chip , had to bite my lip and replace it with another. Like ever is pointing at is Isopropyl Alcohol 91-99% you can also us a soft tooth brush.
  9. I like my CM EVO 212 but with it on my MOMO I have to leve my side panel off to fit my CM EVO 212 heat sink . What type of cases will fit a uATX Form Factor 9.6 inch x 9.6 inch ( 24.4 cm x24.4 cm ) Mother Board w/x2 DVD Burners . I will be upgradeing to a DDR3 Mother Board in the Future like a : M5A99FX Pro R2.0 ATX Form Factor 12 inch x 9.6 inch ( 30.5 cm x 24.4 cm ) But still be able to use my mother board until I upgrade later My pic shows what I had to revert back too my old Atlon x2 64 6000+ w/Stock Fan from my Phenom II x4 965 w/Cool Master 212 EVO cpu heat sink fan.
