So I just returned my h60 and got the CM Hyper 212+. I must say I am surprised at the outcome. When I would fold with the h60 my temps would reach 40C at stock speeds. I been folding ever since I got my rig back up and running and I have yet to exceed 34C. Is it truly possibly that a CM Hyper 212+ can outperform a Corsair h60?

    Well, I'd definitely discovered some nuance to using the Corsair systems.
     
    Given third-party testing done on them, though, they do seem to outperform (or perform equal to) the best pure-air-cooling systems.  I'd suspect, if you are seeing an air cooling system outperform it by that much, that something was off with the Corsair setup you had.  Maybe mounting or pump speed or something along those lines?  Bad unit?

    The H60 is one of the worst modern AIO water coolers.  That difference is a little surprising nevertheless.

    Yeah I had mounted it differently so many times. I tried using the fans as an intake with my pc sitting directly under my ac vent. I actually went through maybe 5 h60s trying to please myself with temps and they all seemed to perform the same temperature wise. At full load on stock speeds I was hitting around 40C sometimes higher when folding. I am sitting at 32C right now, stock speed with the CM Hyper 212+ Also my video card seems to be running a bit cooler probably because the fan is take the hot air and pushing it away from the card quicker. The GPU temps are not that much different. maybe 4 - 5C. But still makes me a happy camper when I can fold with out having to set my fan on the gpu to 80 - 100 percent.

    The H60 I had wasn't too great either. I switched to the h100 and ran into issues with the pump noise. Hooked it up to a little $5 PCIe fan controller I bought at Microcenter and the noise is gone. Also hooked up some 4 cougar fans in a push/pull and my temps have dropped a couple degrees. but this is a total of $160ish for cpu cooler. I'm fine with it cause I'm having fun tinking around with this little guy but that price isn't too good for someone looking for a good inexpensive cpu cooler. I've heard nothing but good things about the hyper 212 so not really surpised.

    I was just surprised to see this much improvement. 8C drop in temps when switching from an h60 to a hyper212+ Non evo. I always read reviews saying the h60 was just a tad better then the hyper 212+ and was never worth the money over the hyper212+. But never heard of the hyper 212+ Out performing the h60 as much as it is for me. And I know its not how I mounted/installed or the unit itself because I must have went through 5 Corsair h60s with in the past 2 months.. All of them held the same results. This is actually the 2nd Hyper 212+ I have used and I am quite ashamed and disappointed that I returned it in the first place. It also did not perform this well the first time and could have been either because I used the stock thermal paste it came with it or the way my father mounted it in. At the time of the first try with the hyper 212+ I was in a gunslinger brace and could not use my left arm at all. Thankfully I was able to install this one myself.

    Would using a push pull set up on the Hyper 212+ make it run even better then it is now? I only ask because I am sure my temperature will rise once I overclock my cpu again and also when I get my gpu.

    I didn't realize clock speed differences were a factor, here...were your overclocks the exact same on the H60 vs Hyper 212?
     
    On my CPU, I find pushing it just 100mhz more (from 4.6ghz to 4.7ghz) reliably adds 5C to the temps.

    Can you pull the link from their site so I can see it?  The pump I have now doesn't have the clicking nose (but the second one I got in as a replacement has it bad).  So, I'll be sending in the replacement one back. It has a near perfect rad, but I can't deal with the clicking, lol.  The first one has a few dings, but none on the flow channels.  I just want to know which part it is just in case I need it later.

    If you overclock your cpu is going to run hotter especially if you crank up the voltage. And yes right now I am at stock speed which I had my cpu running towards the end of my h60. I could not fold on 3.8ghz so I went back to stock. The h60 would keep my pc around 40ishC when folding. I have been folding since last night around 10pm and my temps are still in the low 30C range. 33C right now to be exact.
