Hello, I just bought a hyper 212x a little bit ago and i smell something's that smells like its coming from the heat sink. I checked the the copper pipes sticking out of the heat sink and there was one that looked like it shouldn't be like it and was very small.
If there is any leak in the heatpipe, it will not function correctly.
I would contact coolermaster for a replacement and in the mean time, install the cooler and see if it works. Run prime95 and see what temps you get with it in the above condition. If it works fine, you can cancel your request for replacement.
So nothing is wrong with it if it keeps my CPU cool and it won't act up. I have had it installed for a couple weeks and just noticed the issue now and the temps have been fine never going over 65 or so
Okay thank you. Last question I mentioned a smell earlier do you know what that would be coming from. I thought it would be from the copper pipes on the heatsink. My system is relatively new is it just something that will go away eventually?
contact coolermaster by phone, talk to the rep and ask him if you can send him a digital pic via email
i'm pretty sure he will send you a replacement for free....then u will have two, install which one u want
