This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: All I can do is confirm what is said here by others. I have used this on all my builds AMD and Intel and it has preformed beautifully and is not going to break the bank. All the construction is high quality and built to last.
Cons: I have installed many of these through the years so I do not have a problem, but for a first timer the instructions are not that helpful. I feel that separate more detailed instructions would be a welcome improvement.
Other Thoughts: Keeping all my processors running cool for 15 years thanks to a fine product. If this won't cool it you may need to check your install or move on to water.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed with all my components and updated the bios. You will need to up date the bios as their have been many changes made. Installed win 10 and it has played games without any issue. The bios update was easy and so was the setup. This board has all the features I was looking for and a lot I may never use but are their if I want to in the future. The Lan and sound are really good.
Cons: I have no cons on the motherboard it is exactly what I wanted and everything connected without issue. The utilities are a little buggy but that has nothing to do with the motherboard that is a extra that you may want or not.
Other Thoughts: I use this for it's intended purpose gaming, I do very little other than games on this computer and if I can't run ultra and smooth I feel it has to go. I have this set up with the i7-4790k with the GTX 1080 27'' Asus HD Monitor it plays everything ultra nonstop, no stuttering, no crash and the Lan is really good they got that part right.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I am a gamer so with the latest games and future games I chose this processor as a replacement for my AMD 8320 and I can say everything runs better and faster. Another point in my choice over the latest offering from Intel was the reuse of my DDR3 ram and lack of any real performance gain. I like running without overclocking as I believe it causes problems, with this processor I have found no need to change any settings the turbo mode has takes care of any extra processing I need.
Cons: I do not have any negatives to report.
Other Thoughts: I started with the cool master 210 for Cooling since I game for hours at a time, the stock cooler I felt would not do. After hours of Advanced Warfield the highest temp recorded was 54C.READ FULL REVIEW
