4 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

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

Pros: This cooler is not difficult to install. For me installing the cpu cooler is the most challenging part of building a PC, however this one, while a bit fiddly is not too hard, and likely simpler than most. Search the internet for videos beforehand if you have not done this before.

Cons: The instructions are not that good, but thanks to the internet that's not that big of a deal. Just search for an applicable instructional video.

Other Thoughts: I was installling for an LGA1150. First you install the brace on the back side of the motherboard. This brace is held in place by 4 large studs on the front side. (There are three possible screw positions for each stud, use the center positions for LGA1150) Second to prepare the X brace and to understand how things fit, you position the X shaped bracket so it lines up with the studs. You will have to ensure the 4 spring loaded screws at the tips of the X bracket line up with the threaded holes in the studs. It takes a grabbing wiggling motion to slide the screws between the holes. (use the center position of 3 possible for LGA1150) Third, you remove the fan from the heat sink so things are as uncumbersome as possile during the next steps. Gently pry the plastic clips and carefully remove the fan. Fourth, you peel the protective sticker off the mating surface of the heat sink, apply a dollop of the provided thermal grease, and spread it evenly. (I used a piece of the plastic packaging from the cpu to do the spreading) Fifth you have to collapse the X so it fits through the heat pipes, thread it through so the center pin aligns with the divit ont he back of the heat sink, then rexpand it to where it was before. Step six is to set the loose assembly on top of the CPU, being careful not to move it around once the surfaces mate. Also make sure the heat sink is oriented properly so the fan will blow in the desired direction. Step seven, once the assembly is set loosely in place you need to start the screws one by one. It will take some gentle force to press the screws down and get them started one turn each. Then gradually tigten them, bit by bit alternating between them so that everything is tigtened down nice and even.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet and effective, but can be improved

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

Pros: - Very affordable
- Effective cooling
- Configurable to accept other fans and multiple sockets
- Includes thermal compound

Cons: - Included fan could be better in volume and airflow (can be easily replaced)
- Not quite a tight fit over CPUs
- Interferes with RAM in many motherboards (resolved with low-profile RAM)

Other Thoughts: I was in the market for a cheap and effective cooler for my non-overclocked i7 and went with this option. It's not quite perfect and I ended up making a few modifications to the cooler to better suit my needs.

I'm not an overclock enthusiast - I need a powerful system for my uses but quiet operation and stability are my priorities, so I prefer to run components cool to keep airflow at low volumes. This cooler kept my i7 at great temperatures and the stock fan ran at a nice volume but I ended up swapping the fan with a Phanteks PH-F140HP, which is a 140mm fan in a 120mm package. The fan fit onto the cooler easily, dramatically increased airflow both in CFM and in the additional 20mm size, and runs noticeably quieter. That's not to say the Hyper 212 wasn't effective and quiet to begin with, but it was a marked improvement.

The cooler fits rather loosely over the CPU, meaning once it is installed there is about 30 degrees of rotation that remains possible with the cooler. In practice this isn't really a problem - I set it as straight as I could get it and it has kept my CPU at great temperatures, but even so it made the assembly feel rather cheap and didn't instill a huge amount of faith. I'm sure when I move my system the cooler will rotate again, but I'm not particularly worried about it.

The cooler fan does hover over the RAM on my ASRock Z97 Extreme4 motherboard, which encouraged me to pick up some Crucial Ballistix Sport low-profile RAM. That RAM fits under the fans with room to spare even with the 140mm fan I installed. For anyone considering a large cooler the Crucial RAM is a fantastic choice.

All that being said, this cooler is amazingly affordable for what it does. Even after replacing the fan and with the rotation issues I'm still generally pleased with my purchase. Had I realized I was going to swap the fan with a Phanteks I may have saved up a little extra and gone with one of the Phanteks coolers to begin with, but even so the price was still nothing to scoff at. If you're looking for affordable and decent and aren't a perfectionist, the Hyper 212 will do the trick.

3 out of 5 eggsCooler heads prevail

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

Pros: My properly installed Hyper 212 EVO works.

Cons: This is a make-up review -- but I will go to my grave believing that the 1150 standoffs were in the 2011 bag, which meant hours of trying to install using the incorrect standoffs. For that, and the deservedly maligned instructions, I still deduct two eggs. CM sells thousands of these, they can invest $1200 on a technical writer.

1 out of 5 eggsMissing parts, a common occurrence

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

Pros: I assume it will work well once I get all the missing parts.

Cons: The item was missing the back plate and one of the 4 standoffs for my motherboard. Contacted support and they said I needed to request the parts (and then touted how awesome they were that I could do that right on their website). Apparently, this happens so frequently that they have a form for requesting parts. It's now been 3 days since I requested parts and they haven't shipped yet. Talked to live help and they said they would rush the part. I asked them about the second part (each request is separate), and they were like uhh, what? So I gave the request number so they would send both parts.

Other Thoughts: I've been buying stuff from Newegg since the beginning, usually several thousands of dollars every year, and this is first time that I have had missing parts. How hard is it to count one backplate and four stand offs when packing? Apparently it is difficult for Cooler Master.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid design, works well

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

Pros: Good solid installation hardware, easy install (aside from needing to remove the mainboard from the case, but that's just the way it is; far better than the LGA 775 mounting scheme bending mainboards at least). Cools the processor quite well, dropped temps (and noise) notably over stock without a huge investment.

More elaborate air-cooling, or water cooling setups, would only get you marginally better cooling compared to the drastic increase in price.

You really can't go wrong with a big surface area, direct-touch heatpipes, and a 120mm fan.

Cons: The fan was a bit noisy upon startup; I was not expecting that. I was worried I'd have to replace the fan, but after a couple of minutes it suddenly quieted and hasn't happened again since. Maybe something got jostled in shipping and it needed to settle back into place. At any rate, it's been working fine through lots of uptime and several cold boots.

It's also a bit big, but you should know that when you purchase a heatsink of this size. It can fit in many (but not all) regular cases; just make sure to measure first.

Other Thoughts: I got a similar design from Xigmatek years back; Cooler Master seems to have refined the design and dropped the cost, without (to my knowledge) having sacrificed functionality.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate from my last review

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

Pros: Works really well, on my i5 4690 I hover around 55 - 59 degrees on my hottest core at 100% CPU usage (Non-synthetic).

Quiet, until I get to around 80% CPU usage, which is to be expected.

Cons: Setup was a little complicated, but this was my first time installing a third party heatsink

Other Thoughts: I'm keeping one egg off because the one I had RMA'd ha a huge gash in the bottom of it, but thanks to Neweggs excellent (Or should I say, eggcellent) customer service, I had a new one in about a week free from defects.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality for a great price

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

Pros: Took a while to install but once I had it up and running it does a great job keeping my cpu cool, I have it overclocked to 4.4GHZ and my temperature stays around 23-25 C idle.

Cons: Not really a con, but its huge.. Its blocking my other 2 ram slots. Which are not in use atm but when I do plan on upgrading I may have some difficulty putting them in.

Other Thoughts: Will try to update in a few months

4 out of 5 eggsMuch better than stock cooler

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

Pros: Under heavy load at 4.1 GHz, gives me about 20 C cooler temperatures than the stock cooler (that came with Pentium G3258) (Using each cooler's included thermal paste). Gives significantly more room for overclocking than stock cooler. Feels well built. I don't have the experience to know how it compares to other aftermarket coolers; this is my first build. Fits socket 1150. Mostly clear instructions.

Cons: Installation relatively difficult. Requires access to back of motherboard. Requires simultaneous tightening of screws, and you really have to keep them even as you're going in or you'll have to take the screws out and start over. Noticeably louder than the stock cooler.

Other Thoughts: My feelings on the difficulty of installation are probably only applicable to relatively inexperienced builders, as I would have a much easier time installing it again if I had to now that I know how.

4 out of 5 eggsJust a slight problem

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

Pros: - Everything is functional
- Money to performance ratio is all a customer could ever ask for
- All parts were of high quality

Cons: - The retention plate was a nightmare to install.

Other Thoughts: The amount of pressure and the precision that must be put into installing the retention plate was was do-able, but a huge hassle. It could of been a minor manufacturing defect but when I attempted to install the retention plate the middle pin would not fully go into the middle hole of the bottom plate of the heat sink. After what seemed like an hour I somehow got it to go in all the way and installed it correctly. After this however the cooler worked flawlessly giving me ~60 degrees Celsius in Prime 95 and other stress tests.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat cooling system, no instructions???

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

Pros: This thing is super cool...as in temperature. It keeps my OC i7 processor at a nice 33 degrees C and works like a charm

Cons: This thing did not come with any instructions so it was kind of a mess installing only because i was too prideful to look on youtube. once i looked on youtube on how to install it was a breeze. also this thing is HUGE!! make sure you have enough space
