This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: It came with everything you need and its well made, fits in my 190mm wide case with little room to spare, did not interfere with ram (no heatsinks tho) VERY quiet. stock cooler was loud enough to hear in next room, now i cant tell if its running or not.
overclocking phenom ii x4 965 at 3.8 and it only gets up to 50-51c under load 40-41c idle.
Cons: instructions are not very in depth. you need to adjust the screw placement on the bracket depending on what setup you have. if the screws don't line up perfect you probably need to move them, but the manual only shows a small picture to explain this. maybe its just scary working on the CPU but i didn't like how it mounted, one flat x shaped bracket just holding it against the cpu. its probably fine just seems very minimal. also if youve never applied heatsink paste you proably want to look up a guide. x shaped dabs is what i recommend/used.
Other Thoughts: great purchase, got a 10 dollar rebate. Try to get it for 20 dollars like me I suggest.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It worked with no issues, fast, came with a adapter for desktop installation.
I got a $20 or so rebate with it but Ive yet to see if it will come through, says up to 21 days before I will know anything.
Cons: For my uses i think i could have gotten a 500gd high speed mechanical drive for about the same price, not a huge mistake since i think ssd is a little faster, but only having 250gb as a boot drive means most games and media end up on my storage drive. if i re-did it i might have gotten a high speed 500gb mechanical drive.
Other Thoughts: still expensive for how much storage you get. if this was 500gb for this price id say must buy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: looks cool, silent, connects to motherboard directly or with 4 pin connector included. rubber spacers to prevent vibration. screws included as well
Cons: while the fan is 170mm the screw holes are either 134mm or 125mm apart (there are two sets)
also the fan seems designed to go on the outside of the case and I had bought it for a 170mm set of holes so i had to use some zip ties as screws to attach it to the inside.
also LEDs are not orange, they are white. fan is orange only.
Other Thoughts: still glad i bought it iREAD FULL REVIEW
