Thanks for all the compliments! I have been working on it and will take some time.

Frufsa just a bit on back ground I recently retired from the Army and started this project while I was on active duty as such I have a limited budget for which to work. So Good and Budget are relative to cheep and there are no good cheep air coolers out there. So since I could not get the CPU cooler my thoughts were if the air cooler is starved for air it would not work so I ordered the fans over the last few months to help that dismal stock cooler. So basically the fans were ordered 2 at a time 1 month apart and less than 30 Dollars shipped. The paint was free. I just picked up a "decent air cooler" yesterday and installed it. The next update will happen as soon as I can find my card reader and upload the pictures. Sorry if this all sounds a bit brash but my PC is last on the list of priorities right now as I am retired and headed to college with little to no extra cash for this build. I will be adding the clear side window in the fall so late October early November. Then in December I am looking to add two strips of Bitfenix Alchemy LED white lights. My goal is one set of improvements a month from here on out for no more than 30 Dollars. Sorry to be bit long on this but just need to put it out there, thanks for staying tuned and check back later.

Well here is the update on the CPU cooler follow the pictures and read at the end.


Motherboard removed and I will get to that at the end.


Just another shot of it out.


Stock heatsink removed!


Close up of the Motherboard notice the TIM left behind


Close up of my new door stop!


Preparing the new Coolermaster Hyper 612 for installation.


All installed and plugged up.


New shot to the back, it is massive.


Check out that stock idle tempeture.

So as the story goes I got this Coolermaster Hyper 612 from a box store in Dallas, TX used a rebate from an MSI product I got last year and only paid 20 dollars. Installation was not easy as it was just me so that is why I removed the motherboard. I did not use the TIM from the kit but used Coolermaster Thermal Fusion 400 as I had that laying around for some time and needed to use it. High 20s low 30s idle and no more than mid 50s in the most demanding apps.

I am pleased for now but do plan on water next summer maybe. Next on my list to get is the side window replaced than light it up and then some Corsair SP120s. On the long list is individually braiding the cables and water cooling.

Stay tuned for the side panel window change.
