5.0 out of 5 stars Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (120mm), 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Air CPU Cooler "RR-212E-16PK-R1, 4 x Heatpipe, 1x 120mm PWM Fan, Intel/AMD" (Accessory)
Recently bought a new computer desk and my wife insisted on my 2 computers going 'inside' the cabinet as opposed to 'next' to the cabinet. I have never suffered from overheating issues before on my AMD3+ system (AMD FX8350 Black Edition 8 Core Processor) but once I put this rig into a cabinet and a similar rig next to it boy did the heat rise - to be honest I was afraid there was so much heat generation that either my desk would warp in time or my computers would simply pass out - and one did, every 20 min or so as the CPU temp cut out activated and closed down the whole system on that machine.

I recorded the details of the FX8350 with the AMD supplied fan as fitted in the closed desk (5 minute intervals until stable)...
CPU temp 52/53/57
System temp 46/47/49

Following fitting of the 212 cooler...
CPU temp 36/39/41
System temp 35/38/39

I completely replaced the fitting on the Gigabyte motherboard which was really easy by following the instructions supplied by Cooler Master. I have to say you do need to check the space available within your case to ensure you can support this cooler - it is massive! (See some pics I have taken if they upload OK).

In addition I cut out and inserted a fan into the back of the computer cabinet to extract the warm air generated by my rig (see review of these under Coolmaster Sickleflow 120 product, at £5.99 a snip and a complete solution when linked to above).

The CM fan is quite, effective and has just made such a difference I would not have previously believed possible. The temperature drop of circa 20 degrees overnight is just fantastic! You you really want to go better, you can add a second CPU fan to the fins so you have pull/push airflow, on this system I currently have only one fan pulling and blowing air across my CPU fins but boy what a difference.

Hope this helps (see my other reviews for Coolmaster Sickleflow 120 plus the grill I used to filter air and protect from tiny fingers exploring my cabinet 'Silverstone 120mm Fan Filter with Grill/Black').

Thanks Colin.
