Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Great! But hard to install 04/06/2012

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

Pros: Temps are amazing though I haven't overclocked I'm very confident that I could.

Cons: To get this thing installed with the orientation so the fan faces the back of my system was a huge pain. The AMD chipset for the bracket that comes with it makes it so you have to jostle it around to get it in there and then the screws are difficult to reach and screw in took me a while!

Pros: It booted right up with my FX-4100 I bought with it, the smaller than most micro atx boards comments from others make sense, on the diagram for my case it didn't use several (3 i think) of the standoffs marked for micro atx boards not a problem but it throw me off as a new builder.

Cons: As long as it works for a good long time - nothing as far as I'm concerned.

Other Thoughts: Case is a cooler master haf 912 which has 2 extra usb ports for you in front that are fairly easy to hook up and have been working great for me.

Pros: My first build/time installing a processor to a mobo went fine, it runs sc2 well on ultra settings with only a half decent video card, installed after market cooler master heat sink - this was a real pain but I run with extremely low temps now, don't see a point in overclocking till I get a better video card since I will bottleneck there before the processor anyway.

Cons: The universal attachment clip on my aftermarket heatsink was difficult to install with proper orientation- to get the fan to blow out the back. It would've been much easier with an Intel chip I think. But for the money saved I'm fine with the hassle.
