Stock HSF. I bought 212+ a couple years ago but luckily returned it to the store after I miss measured the HSF and my case. It wouldn't fit. Contemplated buying the small but weaker TX3 instead but never went through with it. I'm still on my e5200 @ 3.663. 35 idle, 65 load prime95.

Don't get me wrong, when I say air I mean that I have a butler come in and blow on the CPU as hard as he can. His replacement is his son. It's a family thing.

Air, because it's easier to set up than a custom loop and it works for my purposes.

I've set up a few closed loop systems and while they're pretty straightforward, I don't really see the benefit over a good HSF.

An old CNPS9700.
I've had it since 2006.

Ah, I remember the day I brought it home.
It was for my X2 3800. I managed 2.8 GHz, and it was amazing.
Then my X2 6400, and now a PII 955 @ 3.7 GHz.

I've got a CNPS9900 MAX BLUE Edition - I really like the design on those Zalman coolers.
I am the bringer of death. Fall to your knees and beg for mercy... Or give me a sandwich, I'm pretty hungry.
