This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Was playing EVE online with a stock intel fan over the i7-2700k and temperatures would spike to between 70-75, With the new Hyper 212 temperatures have yet to go over 44.
Installation was fairly easy on the Intel DP67BG motherboard, mounting brackets etc were easy to attach and work with.
Cons: This heatsink is quite large. Also if you plan on adding a second fan, or having the fan sit over the RAM, it doesn't clear the memory, I had to move the fan up a tiny bit to allow clearance for the RAM.
I am using the GSkill Ripjaw X Series, and the heat sink on the RAM prevented the fan of the CPU to match up exactly with the heat sink, moved it up just a few milometers and everything is working great!
Other Thoughts: Intel i7-2700k (No over clocking)
Intel DP67BG Motherboard
16 GB DDR3 1333 Gskill Ripjaw X Series
Nvidia 560ti 1 GB DDR5
WD 1TB HDD
Pros: This case has plenty of room, expandability, and air flow. I upgraded from an old Chieftech case with an average temperature of around 70 Celsius while playing EVE Online, now the temperatures have yet to reach over 50
Cons: None. Wouldn't change anything on the case.
Other Thoughts: Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase, I was disappointed that the USB 3.0 ports upfront would not work with my motherboard, a new Intel DP67BG and it lacks the connectors for the new USB ports on the front of the case. Not really Cooler Masters problem though!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Memory was a great price, lifetime warranty, and had no issues installing it. Right now at stock speeds and voltages windows ranks it as a 7.6
Cons: None - Someone else had mentioned the fins, which are larger, but I had no issue putting them into the board, the memory comes very close to the stock heatsink - I would think if the it hung over any further it would cause some issues with where the memory is placed. But that really isn't GSkills fault.
Other Thoughts: very happy with this purchase, 16GB for less than $100 is a steal!READ FULL REVIEW
