5 out of 5 eggsGreat cpu cooler.

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Cheap
Keeps things very cool

Cons: Hard to install
Really tall

Other Thoughts: This cooler is awesome I've used it in 2 builds and they work great. There are only 2 complaints I really have with the Evo and that's I wish It was just easier to install, Its really difficult to install the backplate with only 2 hands you need like ten :). The only other problem I have with it is it's so tall, make sure your case is wide enough before buying it or else you'll have to REALLY squeeze it in tight or use a different cooler all together. Otherwise, great cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsHyper 212 EVO!

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: easy Install - good quality - beats the pants off my old TX3 (with 2x92mm fans) - silent - provides headroom to overclock - low price

Cons: big... do your math or you'll be sorry. Fans may extend a bit over the memory slots.(depending on your motherboard and setup). Some companies provide large heat spreaders for the memory. Also make note of the dimensions and make sure it fits your case. (do not cut the tips of the heat pipes) They need to be sealed to cool properly.

Other Thoughts: There is a reason there are a ton of people getting this cooler. It's the absolute best in its price range. Under prime 95 my temps do not go above 65c with a FX 8 core at 4.5 ghz while using this cooler.
If you do not go with water cooling, you must consider this cooler.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Installed on a 2011-v3 processor (i7-5930K). Impressive how much "stuff" there is for the money. Installation was clean, did not require any custom work.

Cons: Yes, I'm nitpicking. Picture-based instructions were a bit confusing, but eventually figured it out. No information provided for the direction of airflow so I had to wait until it was installed. Of course, I had it backwards.

Other Thoughts: I haven't done any overclocking, so I can't tell you if it works well for that.

5 out of 5 eggsA Cool Breeze

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: My I5 processor idles under 30c and max loads at 40 during heavy gaming in a warm room. The fan noise level is very reasonable and less noisy than my old intel stock fan on a lesser processor. The included instructions are terrible. YouTube has a video for installation. It made it absurdly easy once some words and better images were provided.

Cons: It didnt make me dinner.

Other Thoughts: Buy it if you have a big case.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing cooler for the price

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: This cooler is great, and the low price makes it even better. With an i5-4690k (no OC yet) and moderate usage, the idle temperature rests consistently below 30°C, and does not reach very high temperatures during even heavy gaming loads (still running tests to get averages on certain games). The universal mount was easy to attach, and the thermal paste included with it works great.

Cons: The only possible con is the very large heatsink size of this cooler. With proper planning, of course, this is not an issue at all. With many mid-tower cases, this cooler should fit fine. The large heatsink actually adds a nice look to the rig if you have a viewing window.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to build a computer, spend the extra $30 on this cooler. If you want to OC in the future, there will be more than enough room to do so.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Build - Good Cooling

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: It's quiet, can't hear it among the other fans in the case, runs cool.
Could add and even replace fans.

Cons: Kind of tall, the heat pipes touch the inside of my case, not really a problem.
Also, my expectation of its cooling was a bit higher, I get between 40-50 *C under normal load, according to NZXT's CAM, but doesn't seem to leave that range under heavy load. Again, nothing to worry about.

Other Thoughts: I shouldn't complain about at all. I bought to keep my CPU cool, and does a perfect job at it.
Here's my build:
-Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H Motherboard
-AMD A10-7850k APU
-Single HyperX Savage 8GB DDR3 2400 RAM
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooler
-NZXT Source 220 case, black
-used Cooler Master 600W power supply
-used hard drives

4 out of 5 eggsLarge, but effective.

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Keeps the CPU very cool, even during the most intensive programs (running high graphics games and Visual Studio 2013). Instructions are easy to understand and installation, like most heat sinks of this type, are time consuming, but the quality is good.

I would recommend this.

Cons: Fans and sink are fairly large, make sure your motherboard has enough room and that it wont impede the RAM or other peripherals.

Getting the screws and nuts out of the packaging can be difficult. Make sure to remove them before you need them. I spent several minutes fighting to get the nuts out the first machine I built with this cooler.

Check google for some instructions if you are new to adding this type of heat sink. Making mistakes can be very time consuming.

Other Thoughts: Check the hardware when you take it out of box. One of the nuts supplied was far too small and I had to make a trip to the hardware store to get a replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsSomewhat difficult

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Well, it works and is quiet. Previous fan ran @ 4000-6500 rpm, noisy (70MM). Temp is down now to 109F, 1600 rpm. Found an installation on UT that showed what to do and explained all the weird factory instructions. The "X" frame and heat sink can be turned 90 degrees, which I did so as to point the air flow thru the heat sink right into the back case fan. It's got a lot of air coming out the back now. I have 4 ram chips with cooling extensions, the fan fits by about a quarter inch. The fan then also pulls air across the ram sort of a bonus. The were pretty warm before. For me, the MB had to come out. Once I put the "X" frame screws in the proper position, they aligned perfectly with the stand offs. I also rotated my "X" frame when I rotated the heat sink. So after 2 hours of running, quiet...and cool. Good price but the rebate is always a hassle.

Cons: Factory instructions are difficult. This fan is made for both Intel and AMD and as such you must sort out what parts and what orientation these parts belong to what processor. i.e. Intel bottom plate has to be flipped upside down for the AMD processor. The stand off screws come in 2 different sizes, one for intel and one for AMD. These standoff's screw portion would not fit thru the bottom bracket. I had to drill the holes out slightly to make mounting possible. The amd standoffs shoulder is much smaller than my motherboard holes are. You must slightly tighten them and then look and center it in the holes. Lots of play there. Just about at final install, the spring loaded screw in the middle of the "X" fram fell off and went into the MB. Was able to find and reinstall that screw. After studying that screw for a while, not sure what it is for and if there is any adjustment?

Other Thoughts: Its done, took about 4 hours since I had to remove/install my MB and all the wiring. I took plenty of pictures before unhooking everything. Made the reinstall easy. Next time I buy a new computer case, will make sure it has open access to the processor. Changing bottom mounts can be done without MB removal.
