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

5 out of 5 eggs Keeps my i5 4690k cool 06/20/2015

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

Pros: i5 4690k hit 73C at full load at stock speeds with the included heatsink, this dropped that temp down to 50C. Allowed me to overclock to 4.2 GHz with a max temp of 62C. Can OC higher but don't want to push it too much.

Cons: Included directions suck. Look up others on youtube installing the heatsink if you need help.

Other Thoughts: Comes within 1mm of touching my RAM and barely fits in my Rosewill Challenger case but works great.

Pros: Fast even without overclocking. But who buys this processor without overclocking it? Slightly OCed it to 4.2 GHz and it tops out around 63C with a Hyper 212 EVO cooler. Idles at 800MHz and about 28C. My Asrock Z97 Extreme6 is the easiest board I have ever overclocked

Cons: Stock fan is almost pointless. They shouldn't even bother shipping it with this processor. Temperatures on full load at stock speeds dropped from 72C to 50C with a Hyper 212 EVO cooler. I actually ended up putting the heatsink on my old i3 2120 and it keeps that under 50C with pretty much no airflow.

Other Thoughts: This processor booted up at the optimized 4.6 GHz OC for my motherboard but was hitting 80C during Intel Burn Test which is a little too high for me. Maybe I can bump up the OC during the Winter. Paired this processor with a GTX 970 and I am playing every game I own at max on my 1080p 42" TV.

Pros: Benchmarks about 25 mbps faster than my old WD Black 1tb for reads and is significantly quieter. Cost much less than the WD Black as well.

Cons: not as fast as my 840 EVO?

Other Thoughts: My previous WD Black died on me (it always ran super loud) and I just wanted a cheap 1tb drive for my music and pcsx2 game library. This was $25 cheaper, faster, and way quieter than the WD Black I bought 2 years ago.
