5 out of 5 eggs Must Buy. 02/21/2014

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

Pros: Tremendous cooling capability
Option to add 2nd Fan
Comes with Thermal Compound

Cons: Size

Other Thoughts: I installed this onto an i7 4770k inside of a Raidmax Cobra ATX 502-WRR Case. There is 17mm(1.7cm or .669 inches) of clearance from the cooler to the Case window.

Contrary to what others have stated, the directions that come with the cooler are quite sufficient. You just have to know how to read comprehensively, thoroughly and be patient throughout the process.

Now, onto the performance of this thing. On the stock heatsink/fan of the 4770k I was seeing 91°C from a full load stress test, that is simply UNACCEPTABLE. Immediately after installing and using the complimentary thermal paste from CM I saw a drop of 33°C. That's right, 91°C to 58°C under a full load stress test. That kind of performance coupled with the insanely low price of this product makes it 5-stars and a MUST BUY for anyone with a stock cooler.
