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

5 out of 5 eggs AMAZING performance for the money 05/26/2012

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

Pros: -Cools well
-Cheap

Here are some comparison temps (sorry i didnt want to try 3.6 on the stock AMD cooler)-

@3.1ghz w stock cooler
-Load-62 C
-Idle-34 C

@3.6 ghz w Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
-Load-45 C
-Idle-32 C

This is an AMD bulldozer (AMD FX 8120), btw...thats right, 8 cores @ 3.6 and still a lot of room to go for OCing!

Cons: None as of yet. If I have problems, I will post an addendum to this review. Installation really isn't hard, the instructions and the process itself are quite easy to grasp. Big, though, if that is a problem. Wasn't for me. MEASURE BEFORE YOU BUY.

Other Thoughts: Did couple this with Noctua NT-H1. Works well.

AMD FX 8120 (now @ 3.6)
Gigabyte 990XA-UD3
Gigabyte AMD Radeon 6870
Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8gb (4gbx2) 1600mhz 8-8-8-24
OCZ Vertex 3 120gb (OS and games)
Seagate 1tb (files, music)

GIGABYTE GV-R687OC-1GD Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great performance for the price, i can run everything maxed out (besides bf3, i have to turn down texture detail to high) and in my huge case, it's impossible to hear. Great card. Owned it for about 6-7 months now and i havent had any problems with it. After about 3-4 hours of gamins it can get to 65ish(Celsius) which i say is fairly good, especially compared to Nvidia's card's temps.

Cons: -Long (measure before you buy)
-Fans loud at ~75-80% and up

Other Thoughts: -AMD FX 8120 8-core 3.1ghz (stock now, hoping for ~3.8)
-GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
-AMD Radeon 6870
-OCZ Vertex 3 120gb sdd
-Seagate 1tb hdd
-Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

Thermaltake Chaser Series Chaser MK-I (VN300M1W2N) Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Great Airflow
-Lots of room
-nice hdd and sdd docking system
-nice optical drive docking system
-water cooling ready
-dont have to remove motherboard to change cpu coolers(backplate is accessible in back

Great case. I have room to spare, and great airflow. The airflow is really something. In and out. I can stick my hand in and really feel the air moving through it (always feels cold too). I bought a Xigmatek 200mm case fan, so i have 2 colorshift fans as intake (front and side) and one 200mm and the 140mm as out (rear and top). Works well for me. Also, this will fit nearly any cpu cooler not only because it is huge, but also because there is NO FAN over where the cpu sits like in some cases. FOR THOSE WORRIED ABOUT GPU SPACE- I can fit an almost foot long graphics card (see other thoughts) with just over an inch to spare.

Cons: None right now. Not having the power button problems, but like the other user said, if i did, i would just switch the power and reset ones. Not worried about that.

Other Thoughts: -AMD FX 8120 8-core 3.1ghz (stock now, hoping for ~3.8)
-GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
-AMD Radeon 6870
-OCZ Vertex 3 120gb sdd
-Seagate 1tb hdd
