Post Cheap but awful good cooler ...
is the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus for $23.99 I just did over an hour of stress testing using AIDA 64 Stability test on an i5 2500K with the Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 mobo. From the earlier stats, with the Intel heatsink/fan, the max temps on Core#3 alone were over 80 Celsius!!
With the Coolermaster 212, the max temps have only reached (Core #3 is the hottest one) 62C ... Not bad. CPU temps haven't gone over 53C !!

Not bad for a $24 cooler ... :handgestures-thumbup:

Old news ;) Been running one in my brothers computer for a year now or so.

I see they've replaced the metal fan clips with plastic now though.

I would suggest changing that top fan to intake rather than exhaust (if it isn't already).

JD.....I think the idea here was to give him a pat on the back. I bet he packed his toys up and went back in the house.

And that would defeat the purpose of having the hot air exhaust out the top, now wouldn't it? The Fractal (3 fans ...two in the front panel and one in the rear) 140mm fans move air THROUGH the case along with the Coolermaster 212. The Silverstone AP 180mm fan pulls the rising hot air up and out. The side opening, which doesn't have a fan, provides enough cool air for the pressures to equalize. And the whole system is still quiet enough so as not to bother the user.

Why would I want to push hot air back into the case? :think:

It's all about the positive pressure though! Looks like the top is filtered and coupled with positive pressure internally, it should keep most of the dust out.

Plus the Penatrator fans were designed for blowing into the case, not outside. Directed airflow is kind of useless going out of the case.

I say try it and see if there's any noticeable temperature difference!
