took and ran Prime95 for about 10 minutes and it looks like the Hyper 212 is doing a good job. It's funny though, while at idle my CPU core #2 & 3 run the coolest and the #1 & #4 running slightly hotter

I still want to fill the 2 empty fan spots with 200MM fans for a total of 7 fans (4 in, 3 out), but you have to buy NZXT's 200mm fans as other ones don't line up.
