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

5 out of 5 eggs better than a single water radiator 05/30/2015

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

Pros: added a 2nd 2000 rpm fan wend i upgraded to amd 8350 and to my surprise it work very well wend it come to over-clocking the 8 core , got it up to 4.8 under 50c, any higher the temp would raise very fast. works much better than my friends single radiator

Cons: reality check came quickly wend it came time to close the case, the 2000 rpm fan was to noise, had to install fan on MB header and drop rpm down to 1400, still under 50c at 4.6ghz, .
its huge with 2 fans on it
me friend upgraded the fans on the radiator

Pros: i guest iam one of the lucky ones , this MB been rock solid for a year now , pair it with a 8350 clock at 4.6 with a CM 212 and a 2nd 2000 rpm fan some artic sliver 5, idies around 30c , tops of in the 50c,
keep in mind that its in a CM HAF 932 with added 200mm fan on the side, also something to keep in mind , i have a 750 powersupply .
the 8+2 VDM supports this 125w cpu very well
the digital power controller provide very good stable system.
even my old 955 was able to clock over 4ghz on this MB

Cons: still no bios update to fix the UEFI known problems
i like the UEFI but got to fix the mouse speed
still have double boot some times
the 970 chip limitts your memory to 2000 mhz and your TH to 2400mhz.
didnt thing i needed it but the NB runs a little warmmer than the VRM , about 1.5 to 2c

Other Thoughts: iam very happy with this budget upgrade, i also got and I5 upgrade for me son a year ago wend intel prices were a Little better,
honestly for the extra i spend on my son rig i got a top of the line SSD,
at the end ended up with a better benchmark system on a budget.

5 out of 5 eggs extreme air cooling limit before water block 04/03/2015

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

Pros: had this cooler on a 955 clock at 4gz with temp at 35/under 50c , move this cooler to and FX 8350 and added a 2000rpm fan to it with artic silver 5 and i was very impress , max temp at 32c idle, under 50c clock at 4.6ghz, yes, works very well . at times better than my friends 120mm water cooler, i could clock higher but temp move to fast.
was able to move the fan clip on to clean the sniper ram heat sink, this is a BIG plus

Cons: a lot of things to con-sitter before buying this cooler, ram Clarance, if it will fix in the case, 8 1/2 to 9in deep .
are you taking the MB out to install the back plate.
does the case have and opening lineup to the MB back plate.

Other Thoughts: i thought it was working to good until i close the case and realize that the 2000 rpm was to noisy, luckily was able to use the MB header to control fan and still remind under 50c at 4.6ghz.
keep in mind that the setup is in a 932 HAF case with big fans, lol
