Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It works well, keeps the PC nice and cool

Cons: It's freakishly huge and may not fit in every case... pls check your case dimensions.

Other Thoughts: Also after about 6 months the fan seems to be making a pretty aggrivating whurring noise that it wasn't making before. I'm assuming it's an issue with the bearings (if it has any?) I haven't taken the time to pull it apart and look but when you spin the fan freely with a vaccume or by hand it makes no noise, when the pc runs it makes noise... kinda silly but I guess I need to replace the fan now.

4 out of 5 eggs SUUUUUPAAAAACOOOL! 10/04/2013

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

Pros: Very well designed
Comes with paste
Keeps my processor VERY COOL

Directions were hard to follow and were VERY SMALL
More complicated assembly then what I have experienced with other heatsinks.

Other Thoughts: Used to replace a stock heatsink with a broken fan at the recommendation of SEVERAL enthusiast sites. I was a bit wary at first because of how LARGE this heatsink actually is, but if your case is wide enough to accommodate it the device is very well designed and planned out. It does restrict access to parts of my motherboard just because of how large it is in the top corner of the board.

I noticed immediate improvement over the old heatsink. My machine was idling between 48c-55c before, after installing temps were down to ~26c. The design is brilliant and obviously very effective. Because of the way it's designed the fan and heatsink create a perfect wind tunnel straight out through the back exhaust fan.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Small Card, fits well with plenty of space.

- Fan is fairly quiet, not too noisy at all.

- Includes both regular and low profile brackets.

- Price was great, got it on a Sale.

Cons: - Comes with Low Profile bar on it by default. (not a big deal, but it took an extra two-three minutes to get it in.)

Other Thoughts: - I'm able to average 40-50 FPS in WoW while raiding on good settings at 1600x1200 resolution. Main Cities at peak hours can cause it to dip as low as 20FPS. Currently running in a Pentium D 3.2 GHZ machine with 4GBs of RAM.

- With it, I get a 6.4 Gaming Graphics rating in Windows 7 Pro, only getting 4.9 Rating on AERO though, not sure if that's effected or limited by the processor or not.

- Forgot to fill out my Rebate form, I don't know if it's even still eligible, but sale was great even without it.
