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

5 out of 5 eggs Large cooler 08/30/2012

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

Pros: Great cooling, I'm not seeing anything higher than 30 C on my FX-4170.

Cons: The fan expands over the top of my RAM modules so I had to use A2 and B2 and cannot access A1 easily with a larger heatsink model RAM.

Other Thoughts: Overall good product, won't make the mistake of buying larger heatsinked RAM when I go to 16 gigs.

Other consumers, make sure your layout can support the size of your RAM and After Market Cooler for best results. :)

My original RAM was free with mobo so not a bad deal all in all.

Pros: RAM works fine, no errors. FREE during a Newegg promo with my mobo.

Cons: Had to fix the speeed from 1333 mHz to 1600 mHz, no biggie.

Big sinks.

Other Thoughts: Had to use A2 and B2 slots on my ASRock Extreme3 990FX board, they wont fit under the fan on my configuration (which is best suited for heat dissipation in my rig)

Will buy 4 sticks of low profile RAM when upgrading to 16 GB.

Not a waste of money when you get free RAM to start.

Pros: This thing flies! Running my rig at 7.3 experience for under $700 is largely due to this processor. No OC needed you can get away with whatever you want.

Cons: The lady isn't going to like D3 in the bedroom.
