Hyper 212 EVO
As a result the IHS and CPU below it get cooled more evenly, and more heat pipes can be packed in a small space improving cooling performance.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - 4 Heatpipe
Tower CPU Cooler
From the manufacturer
Since our founding in 1992 as a thermal pioneer responsible for the first ever heat pipe heatsink, through our evolution into a manufacturer of cutting-edge cases and peripherals, to our recent groundbreaking switch to the modular format, Cooler Master has consistently rewarded its customers and fans with the utmost in innovation, choice, and control.
Hyper 212 Evo
Four Heatpipe Air Cooler
The Hyper 212 EVO cooling systems are designed and optimized to provide the best user experience and cooling potential for a new generation of processors. The Hyper 212 EVO now features four Cooler Master patented Continuous Direct Contact (CDC) heat pipes that are tightly packed into a flat array on the CPU Cooler base. This acts as a virtual vapor chamber that dissipates a large amount of heat. The aluminum fin structure has been optimized to provide the perfect performance balance between high and low speed fan operations.
- Well-Balanced Cooling
- 4 Direct Contact Heat Pipes
- CDC Technology
- All-in-one Mounting Solution

With the stock cooler, my AMD Phenom ii X4 965 BE was easily reaching 70-80c whilst exporting a video, usually overheating and causing a computer crash in the process. With this one, it rarely gets to 50c no matter what I'm doing.
The other thing that I like about this cooler, is the fact that it can have two fans on it (it does only come with one, but they do supply the mounting brackets for a second) and I would say it's worth it. It keeps the CPU 3 or 4c cooler, plus it helps drastically with the airflow in the case. In a smaller computer this can block the airflow from the front of the case towards the back but adding in a second fan sorted this out.
Definitely more of a cooler for a larger computer case, but this thing does what it says on the tin, and it does it very very well.
I always recommend this to people when asked about potential PC builds and will continue to. If you're on a budget, this is my go-to recommendation. If it's your first time building a PC, there are plenty of YouTube guides which will detail the process for this specific cooler (so please check them out in advance). Also just double check you have enough clearance in the case to accomodate this, otherwise you might need to look at a (more expensive) low profile cooler.
- The cooler runs almost silently (below 1000rpm) with my fx-6300 at 4.3 ghz, keeping it below 60°C even under stress testing.
- It has an unbeatable price to performance ratio
- Decent Thermal paste included in the box
- Wide range of mounting hardware enables it to be used on most systems (see below)
- Sturdy mounting hardware
- Looks simple and quite nice
- Reliable - have used it for over a year and a half without any hitches whatsoever
Words of Warning::
- It it very big:
-158.5mm height means it may not fit in some chassis/cases (check your manufacturers website for compatibility)
-It is 77mm thick with the fan which means it can be tricky to install (RAM will likely have to be removed before installation)
-The above however aren't a problem for me as it fits in my case and clears my RAM - it is just a warning for prospective buyers
Overall, the 212 Evo is a great cheap, reliable cooler that fulfils its job well.
While the instructions were a little difficult to follow, I did manage to work it out. I initially assumed that it would use the same push and twist fitting as the fan that came with the processor - it did not. In fact you have to fit a flat underneath the mobo and secure it with the mountings on top of the mobo which the fan mounting screws into. They even supply some conductor paste in case you don't have any spare.
The only snag was that the way it is intended to be mounted meant that the fan would complement the airflow of the exhaust fan, thus it would mount on the opposite side of the heatsink to where the exhaust fan is. I could not do this because the memory slots got in the way.
Thankfully I had room to mount the fan on the other side adjacent to the exhaust fan, all I needed to do was unscrew the mounting brackets on the fan provided and screw them on the reverse side, thus reversing the airflow to suck air through the heatsink rather then blow air through it. Then the airflow is more efficient.
So when it was all fitted, I tested it out in an idle state and running a CPU intensive app - I used Handbrake.
Overall I am very happy with the result - the CPU is now 9-12 °C cooler than it was with the old fan.
It gets four stars simply because of the crappy instructions.
And with that I will leave you with this review by BitWit for those who prefer the more humourous and visual option: [...]
(Oh and those worried about this not saying support for LGA 1151, it does just use the LGA 1150 option on the bracket as they have the same 75mm screw hole distance.)
