5 out of 5 eggsBetter for AMD than for Intel CPUs

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: I purchased this guy well over a year ago, and had been using it with truly great results on an aggressively overclocked 6-core FX-6300 Vishera. Indeed, its 4 direct-contact heat-pipes proved to be extremely effective at carrying heat away from this CPU. When installed properly, all downward pressure of the cooler's base onto the CPU is applied via a single peg pressing down on the exact center of the cooler base/CPU "sandwich" -- this insures a very homogeneous contact of the cooler's base with the CPU's surface, even with slightly uneven torque applied to the cooler's 4 corner mounting screws. I mounted this cooler with two fans attached and oriented it so that the fans would blow from bottom (drawing outside air directly off my side intake fan) to top and out though my 140 mm top-mounted exhaust fan. Temps of my FX-6300 (clocked @ 4.4GHz) never exceeded 48 degrees C while running Prime 95.

Cons: As my review title states, this cooler is more efficient for AMD CPUs than it is for Intel CPUs. When I recently installed this cooler onto my Intel 3.33 GHz core 2 Duo E8600 (socket 775), clocked @ 4.16 GHz, I found the CPU temperatures would run unacceptably high. Upon close examination, I found the cooler's two outside heat-pipes were running much cooler than the two inside heat-pipes (actually almost cold), even with my E8600 approaching 70 degrees C. So, I pulled off the cooler to see what I could see. And what I found were only two distinct tracks through the thermal paste on the CPU and thermal paste covering only about half the width of each of the cooler's outside heat-pipes. For one thing, this showed that the cooler's aluminum base does not physically touch the CPU, only the heat-pipes touch (because they protrude down just a hair from the aluminum base). And for another thing, it revealed that only about half the width of each of the two outside heat-pipes had come in contact with the surface of the CPU, explaining why they remained so cool. Time for some measurements! (See other thoughts for my findings.)

Other Thoughts: As it turns out, AMD's entire line of AM, AM2, AM2+, AM3, and AM3+ CPUs all have a 38 x 38mm top surface with sharp fall-off (non-beveled) edges. As such, they all can fully accommodate the 33mm side-by-side span of the 4 heat-pipes on this cooler -- each heat-pipe is 6mm wide and they are space 3mm apart, resulting in a total span of 33mm. Intel socket LGA 775 CPUs (like mine), on the other hand, have only a 28 x 28mm top surface with about 1mm of beveling on each of the surface edges, which results in about only a 26 x 26mm flat surface available to contact a heatsink. Accordingly, when this cooler is mounted on a socket LGA 775 CPU, there is an overhang of about 7mm, where if the cooler base is perfectly centered on the CPU, 3.5mm (more than half the width) of each of the two outside heat-pipes fail to contact the CPU. Thus, you effectively realize the cooling efficiency of only 3 heat-pipes (actually slightly less). Those owning an Intel socket LGA 2011 processors you are in luck, because these processors are physically much larger than the previous generation CPUs and have contact surface area of 38 x 38mm, equal to that of the AMD CPUs. Bottom line: If you have an Intel CPU, do your measurements!

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good for the cost

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: - Overclocked I5 stays relatively cool when gaming (60-65) unless under extreme stress testing (67-69)
- Looks cool
- Pretty easy to mount. The brace that holds it to the mobo is mounted first, then the cooling pipes are mounted on to that.

Cons: - High 60's might be a bit hot, I'm not sure though
- When its hot, you can hear the fan spin up. Its not silent.

Other Thoughts: For the price ($20) with rebate this is a great cooler. If you want something more quiet though, and a little better maybe the EVO would be a better option.

3 out of 5 eggsmounting hardware problem

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: works as expected. fan is quiet compared to stock.
mounting hardware and thermal paste are neatly arranged and held in a foam insert.

Cons: cooler is big but fits in a standard pc case.
installation instructions comes in the form of diagrams, a little description would have been helpful.

Other Thoughts: There are 4 screws that is used to secure a mounting plate at the back of the motherboard. One of the screws does not have a notch that enables it to easily slide through the mounting plate.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: For 35 bucks this thing stomps all over the stock cooler. Its keeping my FX-6300 3.5 to 4.1 overclock at 46-47c
Fan is quite

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Its quite large so make sure it fits. It fits in this case I just bought, barely.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Go To Cooler

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: This CPU cooler has become my go to cooler when I build a new computer. The cooler is very quiet and does an exceptional job of keeping your CPU cool. I have used this on both AMD and Intel processors with numerous socket types. In my personal opinion this cooler does an outstanding job because the heat pipes are in direct contact with the processor. On top of the exceptional cooling capability of this item the price is cheap.

Cons: None, well almost none, if your computer case is tall enough for the cooler to fit. This cooler is tall so be sure to measure how much room you have before buying this cooler. It measures 5 3/4 inches from the motherboard surface to the top of the heat tube on the cooler.

To be fair, installing the cooler is a task that should be done with the motherboard sitting on your bench or table. Depending on how handy you are it may even be better for you to have a helper when installing this. I have installed so many of these that I find it to be very easy, but I wouldn't consider installing this with the motherboard in the case unless you have a very large cutout behind the processor and removable panels on both sides of the case.

Other Thoughts: I personally believe that the only other option for better cooling with be with a water block. However, one has to question if the additional cost of the closed loop system is worth the extra few degrees of cooling. I do not believe that you will find a better air cooler anywhere close to this one at or near the price. Usually, if you watch the sales this cooler can be picked up for less than $25.00 or $30.00.

3 out of 5 eggscooler master 212 plus

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: really cools the my 8350 so I can overclock big heatsink thou but works fine.

Cons: the fan that it comes with is cheap, cannot be trusted cause it vibrates and would just put a stress on the motherboard. it shakes a bit. you need to replace the fan with a pair of auf120 deep cool for smooth and quiet air

Other Thoughts: if you have mastered the heat distribution on the fins then theres nothing hard for a nice fan design it needs a light quiet smoother with anti vibration so we wont spend for extra. imagine a fan that causes vibration on the whole motherboard and parts for hours, days could cause damage.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat and inexpensive

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: It is _extremely_ hard to justify any other cooling solution unless space is a factor or the user is looking for an extreme overclock.
This is quiet and a great performer.
This thing is nearly as good as solutions which cost 2-4x as much, and those weigh much more (stress motherboard) and are often less quiet.

Cons: Stock fan is not particularly quiet. I recommend Noctua or Scythe. Do some reading regarding PWM vs voltage regulation, and whether your mobo will support variable speeds on a 3-pin fan.
Throw out the provided thermal paste and buy some new stuff. "Less is more" for thermal paste -- if you used more than a grain of rice worth you are hurting your rate of transfer.
