Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs patiently suffering through the install leads to great cooling 02/05/2015

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

Pros: great cooling performance, i know people who use this and it was my first choice for a cooler it is IMO the best in it's price range (to get better cooling you need to up your spending significantly)

the single fan it comes with is more than adequate for stock, adequate for moderate overclocking, and will keep the cpu from frying itself if you start to get into the MOAR SPEED OCs... can mount a second fan with zero difficulty which can increase airflow through the fins increasing cooling performance

i won't be trying for the 5GHz mark with my 4690K but i can see something in the 4.2-4.5 range being perfectly safe

Cons: the install could easily be simpler... getting the stand offs to line up with the mounting holes properly is not the easiest thing and keeping the bracket and the cooler together and not sliding around while getting the screws threaded in really needs an extra pair of hands

Other Thoughts: if you're planning to go air cooled get this one, get a buddy to help with the install, and definitely install before mounting the board to the case

Thermaltake Commander G41/Black/Win/SECC Black SPCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (CA-1B4-00M1WN-00)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Where to begin... space, lots of space

3 5.25" bays, 6 3.5/2.5" bays (3 of which are removable if your video card is too big)
plenty of space to route the cables
plenty of room for tall CPU coolers (hyper 212 evo)
good location for the front panel buttons and ports
decent ventilation
good options for mounting additional case fans (or a radiator)
and doesn't look too gaudy... a visually pleasing front panel, the blue power switch LED is not overly bright, the HD activity LED is a fairly dim red, and the only LED that is only there for looks is a subtle light on the case fan

Cons: side panels can sometimes be a tad stubborn to line the tabs up

the top drive cage is ever so slightly in the way of the SATA ports on my motherboard (gigabyte g1.sniper z97) leaving little room for the cables

almost a con... this sucker is wide... make sure to measure the space you plan to put it it barely fits in my desk
