5 out of 5 eggsCools down CPU

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

Pros: -Temps drop 10 degrees C.
-Love the design

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have a Intel Pentium G3258. With the stock cooler, the temps were 45, with this cooler, the temps are 35. This cooler really helps for a mild overclock, but I didn't overclock my CPU so I can't really say much but except for my common since.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good cooler

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

Pros: Works well, temps are lower for sure. I have the AMD A10-6800k and I'm seeing idle temps about 32c and Load temps about 47c. Thats about 8 to 10 degrees c colder than the stock cooler

Cons: size size size, it's just too big. my case is 8.2 inches wide and it touches the side panel. had to mount it horizontally to get clearance, my side window bubbles out so thats why i had room that way. vertically it was too tall and hit the side panel

Other Thoughts: great if you have room. make sure you know your size limits before ordering

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

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

Pros: Haven't had any issues yet, seems to do its job rather well. I bought this so I can eventually (when needed) overclock my processor and not have issues.

Cons: Was a nightmare to put on and the instructions said to put it on in the most difficult manner i've ever seen. Common sense will tell you how to best attach it. Still took about an hour.

VERY BIG AND BULKY. Thank goodness I have a huge case so that wasn't an issue, Still almost touches the side panel, not able to put side fan on at all because of it. MAKE SURE YOUR CASE IS BIG ENOUGH FOR THIS BEAST!

Other Thoughts: Great fan and heatsink, seems to be working quite well and keeping my processor cool. Really quiet.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Cooler

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

Pros: Looks kinda cool.
Ridiculous low temps.

Cons: It's MASSIVE.
Poorly designed for AMD mounting.

Other Thoughts: I've had this cooler for 2 or 3 months now. Before I purchased it, I was getting idle temps on my FX 6300 upwards of 45c with stock cooling and no OC. Under load, it was easily hitting 65c.

So I picked up this cooler because it's the highest rated for the price. And when it comes to cooling, it deserves those ratings. Temps are fantastic. At around 15c ambient temperature, I get around 16-17c idle. The highest I've seen under load is about 35c, which is lower than the idle temps I had with the stock cooling. Temperature-wise, I absolutely love this cooler.

The only issues I have with it are the size, and the lack of mounting options for AMD. Using it on my Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3, and of course mounting it the way that you're meant to for AMD, it effectively blocks the RAM DIMM closest to the processor, and the plastic clips that attach the fan to the heatsink puts pressure on the second slot. I'm confident that low-profile RAM, or even normal RAM that simply doesn't have a heat spreader could clear the cooler just fine, but most RAM has a heatspreader these days.

None of this would be an issue if there were actual mounting options available for AMD, though. For Intel, you can choose between mounting the heatsink vertically, or horizontally. For AMD, you're practically forced to mount it horizontally (with the fan oriented upwards). There are cutouts on the heatsink that appear as though they exist to allow you to get tools to the screws if you were to try to mount it vertically on an AMD system, but that would require a screwdriver long enough to reach the screw from the top of the heatsink. If the cutouts on the heatsink were just a little larger, it would make mounting it vertically (fans pushing air out of the back), MUCH easier on AMD.

As a side note, the heatsink is also quite large. One of the heatpipes on the top makes contact with the window on my NZXT Source 210, which caused it to get scratched. Not only that, but the fan vibrates the heatsink ever so slightly while the system is under load (while gaming), which causes an annoying noise because of the contact with the window.

This is a 4 egg review instead of 5 purely for the lack of mounting options on AMD, however. The size is the size, and there's not much that can be done about that. If I had an Intel rig, this would be a 5 egg review.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat heatsink!

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

Pros: Keeps my devil's canyon i5 overclocked at 4.5ghz without an issue.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It keeps me in the low 30's. And when taxed, never goes higher than the mid 60's. Since my cpu has a limit of 72, no worries. The way I like it.

4 out of 5 eggsBest CPU fan under $40 in the world

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

Pros: - STOP LOOKING AROUND, BUY IT NOW
- LOW TEMPS UNDER LOAD
- LIGHT
- EXTRA FAN ATTACHMENT
- WORTH THE INSTALLATION

Cons: - Trying to fit an elephant into a mouse hole would be easier than setup

Other Thoughts: This CPU fan brought my temps under load down by about 10 degrees. It never lets my CPU get over 45 degrees (and I am running an AMD). Stop looking around and buy it. NOW. Nothing cheaper with such good results!

3 out of 5 eggsScary to Install

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

Pros: I have this hooked up to my AMD FX9590 (8-core processor) and I have never had any cooling issues. This definitely will take care of your needs. Probably a bit overpowered but that's not a bad thing

Cons: This is really frightening to install on the board. you end up pushing down very hard on the braces to get them to screw into the board. You almost feel like you will snap the motherboard. I can understand making this secure but it feels like the braces need to be a bit lower so attaching to the board isn't quite as frightening.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Product

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

Pros: I coupled this item with the Intel i7-5820. I didn't have a hard time installing it like some folks. I could see how it could be confusing, the directions/instructions are minimal, but I had enough experience with heatsinks and coolers that I made out okay. Keeps my CPU cool and fits nicely inside my full size case. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

Cons: Larger heatstink/fan, but should fit most setups

3 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: - Installed on an AMD FX-8320 CPU. 5-10 degrees celcius improvement.
- Relatively quiet, even under heavy load.

Cons: - It's hard to install on AMD boards. I've installed it on Intel boards no problem. The pins holding the heatsink do not push in very well, which means you have to screw them in in a star configuration. Depending on how your case is set up, you may end up having to install the heatsink outside of your case.
- HUGE!
- It doesn't seem like it fits snug on your CPU.

Other Thoughts: This works great on Intel CPUs, I saw 10-20 degrees celcius improvements on I-series processors (30-40 on moderately heavy loads.) It's also significantly easier to install. I am not deducting more eggs because it's a great product for Intels, and AMD CPUs just run way hotter. I just wish it weren't such a pain to install on AM3+ boards.

I also am not using the thermal paste it came with, I always use Arctic Silver 5 compound.

4 out of 5 eggsHard to install

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

Pros: Has a great heat sink for CPU. Fan is also very easy to take on and off. Also, comes with additional side rails for replacements in case the preinstalled ones break.

Cons: Very annoying to install. This is only the case because the directions are very vague and contradictory of the product. There are online guides made by other users that explain much better.

Other Thoughts: Good purchase lost one star because of installation.
