you're not going to get much cooler than that on air... i mean you will but not enough to justify spending the money again. Go Closed loop or live with it.

i'm at 1.44v right now and never get higher than 67c with my seidon 240m. - -

I'm gonna side with WyzeGye, those temps look about what I'd expect from that OC with air cooling. If you really need cooler temps you'll want a closed loop cooler.

don't understand. i thought the hyper 212+ was really good.

You thought wrong. It's garbage compared to high-end air solutions or the majority of CLCs. People recommend it because it's cheap and does well relative to what it costs.

People recommend it because to do significantly better you'll at least double your costs, and you're not going to get double the cooling performance in the process. In fact if I'm remembering correctly you're looking at a difference in load deltas of less than 10 degrees between the 212 EVO and something like an H100i. Granted those 10 degrees are extremely important ones when they're the difference between a stable OC and damaging your chipset...
Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Swiftech H220X is the top dog for 240mm AIOs atm, you need to go 280 to beat it. It has a unique shape and short tubes though so make sure it'll work with your case, you have to mount it up top, that's pretty much all the tubing is long enough for.

It's expensive but worth it imo, it's expandable and actually has enough pump power to manage an extra block or rad if you want. It will also power up to 8 fans with PWM controls (via a sata plug) if you want, though you can't control them individually.

Get an h105 or something comparable. Are you using a push/pull config with your cooler? If not you can try that. I would recommend a water cooler though.

Edit: not sure about the voltage on that CPU but on a 3570k I needed 1.3v for 4.5ghz and hit a max of 65c in prime95 using an h100i. On my current 4790k I need 1.25v for 4.6ghz with max temps at 77c using a x61 cooler. With air cooling you are going to get high temps with higher voltage. Either you can deal with it,, get better fans for a push/pull config or get a water cooler. Water cooling would be your best choice.

yeah, thanks guys. i'll look into water cooling later in the year. air cooling will suffice for now since i only really use my system for gaming here and there

I have a hyper 212 and a 3570k, and I get about the same temps. Mine's only at 4.4ghz tho I think.
is haha

Don't spread the thermal paste yourself, let the heatsink do it.

This so much. "Spreading it out" in theory would make sense to a lot of people. But when you let the HS do it. it fills the gaps in the areas it needs to properly.

Spreading it out can make the paste to thick or too thin in certain areas. Which can lead to higher temps.

i did. i put a pea size drop and set the heat sink over it.

What exactly is pea sized in your opinion. You could be putting way to much on. When they say pea sized they mean something more like a BB gun pellet.

a bb gun bb is pretty damn small. Though, there's different caliber ones too. I remember having to write down which size to shop for small milk cartons of them at wal-mart.
